“Working at Willow Oak Therapy Center allows me control over my client caseload. I control the number of clients in my caseload, when I schedule them, and if I see them remotely or in-person. I can use Willow Oak’s inviting suite of offices for any in-person appointments. The intake worker does initial client screenings, allowing me to choose clients that I work with best. The environment is collegial and supportive, and we have periodic therapist get-togethers. A dedicated bookkeeper and experienced medical biller take care of billing and insurance issues, allowing me to focus on what I like best – clinical work with my clients.”

“Working at Willow Oak has allowed me to focus more on my clients and less on paperwork. They handle insurance credentialing, new client intake, and billing, all while offering an extremely fair and competitive pay split.
