We support one another and treat each other with love and kindness, creating an environment filled with joy. We are searching for other joy-filled therapists who want to be a part of something much bigger than just a run-of-the-mill counseling office.

Coastal Light Counseling…

is appreciated for its sophisticated, user-friendly website, integrated & immediate online scheduling, and personal patient portal accounts. Our dedication to the patient experience is innovating the field as we know it and shifting the paradigm of how therapy is provided.

Our group practice is green, paper-free, and fully electronic-based, using state-of-the-art web-based software to help counselors seamlessly handle all aspects of their part of practice management, such as: electronic health record software, HIPAA-secure messaging, Telehealth platform, & managing your own schedule. We are also an Apple-loving practice, so MacBooks & iPhones are required, to help us manage seamlessly!

Coastal Light Counseling is a practice that values love, kindness, joy, & fun above all else. Our goal is continued growth, individually and as a practice.

  • Highly skilled/comfortable in the use of electronic devices (MacBooks, iPads, iPhones) & online software – It’s kind of hard to work in a fully online practice without this skill!
  • We really like exclamation points! If you only use periods and not exclamation points, this probably isn’t the practice for you! Seriously – we’re totally not joking. Friendly communication is essential.
  • Currently licensed to practice INDEPENDENTLY (unable to accept pre-licensed professionals – unless you are within a couple of months of being licensed & have passed the NCMHCE).

  • High level of social-awareness and multi-cultural competency

  • Must focus on their own personal physical, mental, & emotional health and reflect that in their daily lives
  • Smells nice (or at least doesn’t stink 😉 – especially when having in-person sessions. You can be as stinky as you want, if you’re doing teletherapy from home!

  • Currently credentialed with Anthem/BCBS
  • Approved as a non-network TRICARE Certified Provider
