Careers with A New Hope

Therapy Center

Have you been thinking about private practice but insurance and billing scare you​?

Are you interested in managing your own full-time schedule of 25 clients?

Interested in being independent with the support of office admin and an in-house biller?

A New Hope Therapy Center offers the best of both worlds! As a contractor, you make your own schedule and are offered competitive pay rates for services provided. Our team provides you with an office administrator who helps verify insurance benefits and scheduling intakes, as well as our in-house biller who verifies claims and works on denials, so that you don't have to!


A New Hope Therapy Center is a progressive team of professionals who strongly believe in equity for all. We are passionate about social justice, and we take an active stand against hate and racism. We are a safe harbor for our at-risk populations including immigrants, children, and LGBTQIA individuals. 

We are supported by a clinical team who enjoy highlighting therapy models and techniques that support ethical progress with your clients. Our providers are trained and utilize a variety of modalities including trauma informed yoga, movement and dance therapy, art therapy, geek and gaming therapy, and play therapy. 

"A New Hope Therapy Center as a whole has a wide range of clinician's at various stages of their career and unique therapeutic approaches which provides a professional and friendly environment with skilled therapists willing to offer support, guidance and encouragement to follow your own path as a clinician."

Niki J Grimes, MS, LPCC
