Psychologist Position Opening (Tacoma, WA)

Psychologist Position Opening (Tacoma, WA)

Allenmore Psychologist Associates P.S. is a private practice that has been in business since 1986.  We are looking for a psychologist to compliment our existing group and serve a wide referral base.  At present, our practice is comprised of nine psychologists, three Master’s-level counselors, an ARNP (Psychiatric Nurse), two Psychometrists, and five office staff.  As a group practice, we incorporate supervision and consultation.  After a careful review of the local market, we have developed a model to help a licensed psychologist acquire work experience quickly.  It can also be a lucrative opportunity.  Office staff primarily does the work required for credentialing (i.e. getting people on insurance panels), filing, billing, and so forth.  Practitioner’s get to focus on what they do best–providing excellent psychological services.  We have a great reputation in a good market and our caseloads are generally booked out 4+ weeks.  Please view our website at www.allenmorecounseling.com.

Employee benefits are numerous and include:

  • Space, furniture, computer, and supplies necessary to operate one’s clinical practice
  • Credentialing for getting on health insurance panels
  • Malpractice insurance
  • Vacation coverage
  • Supervision/consultation
  • Continuing education support
  • Paid sick leave
  • Retirement plan and contribution to that plan
  • Productivity bonuses
  • Paid relocation support for out-of-state candidates

Allenmore Psychological Associates P.S. is located in Tacoma, WA.  This area has reasonably priced housing, is in close proximity to quality school districts, and most of our employees live within a 15-minute drive from our office.  Excellent cultural and arts attractions, professional athletic teams, and outdoor and water sports activities are very accessible.  The Sea-Tac International Airport is only 30 minutes away while travel to the city of Seattle can be accomplished in only 41 minutes.

Candidates for this position should meet the following criteria:
