Join us in helping people live healthier, happier & longer lives

PlushCare, an Accolade company (NASDQ: ACCD), is a Silicon Valley-based virtual primary care and mental health platform that is transforming the healthcare industry by making exceptional healthcare more accessible, convenient, and affordable. Since 2015, we've connected thousands of patients and clients throughout the United States with world-class physicians and therapists from a phone or laptop.

As we continue to grow and expand our services, we are looking for passionate and empathetic individuals to be part of our journey. Experience in the startup ecosystem is helpful, but a growth mindset and passion for helping people live healthier, happier & longer lives is essential.

What we're looking for:

We are seeking a Virtual Therapist with a license to practice independently in the state of California to practice on the PlushCare platform. At PlushCare, our clients have the unique opportunity to establish a genuine connection with their therapist, seeing the same professional for each visit, all within a virtual setting. It's like a traditional brick-and-mortar practice, but in the digital age. We want our therapists to develop a client base.

Our client base is a diverse population with a mix of uninsured and employer-sponsored clients and our typical scope includes a broad range of mental health needs, including patients with anxiety, depression, insomnia, OCD, and PTSD. As a PlushCare therapist, you will work virtually but closely with a collaborative team of distinguished clinicians through regular consultation.

This is an Independent Contractor role and you must be available to work at least 10 hours per week.

Candidates must have all of the following qualifications:

  • Master’s degree from a nationally recognized and accredited graduate school of social work, marriage and family therapy or psychology
  • Current and valid licensure and in good standing with the Board of Psychology or Board of Behavioral Services (LMFT, LPCC OR LCSW)
  • Active license to practice independently in California; more than one license is a big PLUS
  • Willingness to obtain at least three to five additional state therapy licenses, paid for by the practice
  • 2+ years POST licensure experience within the mental health field
  • Ability to use computer, email, and electronic records system

Nice to have:

  • Experience with and desire to work with adolescents

Why join the PlushCare team:

  • Greatly reduced administrative burden
  • Cost of licenses plus bonuses for incremental licenses covered by the practice
  • Flexible schedule
  • No special equipment is needed - just a solid internet connection, computer, and webcam


As we grow our mental health practice, we will be paying our therapists even if they aren't seeing clients. We want to ensure that if someone is dedicating time to us, we compensate them properly.

    • Completed Sessions: $70.00 - $75.00 ($20.00 hourly + $50.00 - $55.00 for the completed session)
    • Hourly: $20.00 regardless of seeing a patient or not

Actual compensation packages within that range are based on a wide array of factors unique to each candidate, including but not limited to skill set, years and depth of experience, certifications, number of state licenses and specific location.

We are proud to embrace a diverse & inclusive workplace and are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity or Veteran status.#LI-JB1 #LI-Remote
