Join our team

Helping people from diverse backgrounds pursue self-awareness, personal development, and healthy, fulfilling relationships.

A bit about us

Here at Optimum Joy, we seek to create a connected and collaborative environment. Private practice can easily become isolating. We combat this through celebrations, staff retreats, and team-wide get-togethers. Outside of staff meetings, our therapists enjoy and consult with each other between sessions in our office spaces. The sense of team drives our culture. Enjoyment may not be an official value, but it is emphasized in every aspect within our office. We believe people should enjoy where and with who they work.

Why work with us

Optimum Joy prides itself on offering a collaborative environment, incentive income structure, and flexibility to hours and daytime clients.
