Morgan Rakay, MA, LPC, BC-DMT
Licensed Professional Counselor, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Psychologist
Online and Tele-counseling Position ; BETA test
MyCocun is currently hiring licensed counselors, clinical social workers, and psychologists to provide online and phone-based counseling services. MyCocun has expedited its development process in order to provide greater support and accessibility to mental health services during the current public health crisis. We are seeking mental-health clinicians who understand the impact and importance of mental health services at this time, and who may themselves be challenged in their work to migrate fully to telehealth. Clinicians hired at this point would serve to help beta-test basic platform functions in addition to regular counseling, and would be offered an increase in pay once full functionality is available.
MyCocun is a HIPAA compliant online and tele-counseling platform that links teens and young adults to licensed counselors specializing in depression, anxiety, and addiction. The system facilitates the interaction between member (client) and counselor via online messages, real time chats, voice and video sessions. Users can communicate with counselors in a secure/safe room daily through secure, asynchronous messaging or schedule real time appointments.
*Please note that current platform capability is video-chat only, and we are quickly moving towards all other forms of communication as the beta-test progresses.
MyCocun is an online community committed to reducing the delay between onset of mental health symptoms and the treatment of depression and anxiety in teens and young adults. We believe that by leveraging information and promoting the use of technology we can help remove the key barriers to care: high treatment cost, lack of access to mental health professionals, and perceived social stigma. By sharing information about early warning signs, building connections, and fighting the stigma of mental illness we encourage parents and young adults to seek early treatment so they can live their best lives.
In this unprecedented time of public health concern and widespread isolation, MyCocun is dedicated to providing no and low-cost counseling to those who find they need greater access to mental health support and flexibility. MyCocun is currently offering all member fees directly to our counselors, and are not taking profit from our members.
Job Description and Requirements
How It Works
Counselors will utilize their own technology and must have a private space in which to take live calls and video sessions. This is a remote position, and can be done as work-from-home. Counselors will set their own schedule, and manage their own member cases as they see fit.
Counselors will be licensed in their state with a minimum of 2 years experience, 5+ years preferred. No experience with telecounseling or online counseling is necessary, though is of benefit, and all counselors will be offered clinical training prior to their start date.
Counselors will be asked to schedule a minimum of 5-10 hours per week as they begin, but are welcome to use the platform as their full-time income. Support for managing caseload growth will be available.
Counselors may set their own hours, including nights and weekends, and do not need to request vacation leave or time off ahead of time, other than to notify members (clients) and MyCocun clinical supervisor for appropriate handling of any caseload needs that arise while away.
MyCocun counselors are paid at a rate of $25 for each 45-minute live video session. Current beta-test offers video counseling only. As we move to full launch, live text chat, phone, and video counseling will be an option as well as asynchronous messaging. Reimbursement will be $3 per message.
In addition, counselors will receive a monthly bonus based on long term members who are active for three months or more, at the rate of:
$100/month for 5 long term subscribers
$200/month for 10 long term subscribers
$400/month for 20 long term subscribers
Free NBCC approved CE’s will be offered during training and throughout the year. (See below)
Benefits (and why work here)
With MyCocun, your focus is 100% on counseling. You do not need to worry about acquiring clients, billing, support or operations - that’s on us.
MyCocun is constantly seeking to expand the benefits we offer our counselors/providers. Each counselor will receive clinical supervision and support, and can look forward to opportunities for clinical training, case consultation and peer feedback forums, and direct input into the structure of the organization.
Formal onboarding training, to launch along with the fully functional platform will include NBCC approved CE hours for free (pending approval). All counselors will receive a minimum of 2 CEs simply for completing the clinical portion of onboarding training. In this way, our providers are never at a loss for joining us, even in the instance that your initial caseload is small or slow to increase.
