Join the Deep Eddy Community

Growing to Help Meet the Needs of Texas

Deep Eddy Psychotherapy has served Texas for over three decades. We have earned a reputation for excellent care and happy, healthy clinicians. Between being known for giving clients an amazing experience and accepting most major insurances, Deep Eddy gets a great deal of demand for our services – so much so that we can typically fill an entire caseload in about two weeks (depending on how many the clinician can take on at once and whether they are paneled with our insurances) because of the immense demand. 

We simply aren’t able to help everyone that comes to our door (or, our website). But, we want to.

If you or someone you know want to join a thriving practice, a community dedicated to interconnectedness and collegiality, and a space to continue to learn and grow, don’t wait – we would love to hear from you. 

Please contact our CCO and COO, Kyler and Rachel, at [email protected] to learn more about Deep Eddy, what it’s like to work here, and whether we might be a good fit for you.  Read on to learn more about our practice, what we have to offer, and how to apply.


To Apply for a Position

Please email the following information to our President and Chief Clinical Officer, Dr. Kyler Shumway at [email protected]:

  • Cover letter explaining why Deep Eddy Psychotherapy would be a good fit for your career path
  • Resume or curriculum vitae
  • 3 clinical references (you can attach letters of reference if you wish, or simply provide us phone numbers so that we may contact them directly)
  • Video of a mock therapy session with a friend or colleague (10-15 minutes long). We are looking for therapeutic presence, empathy, effective nonverbal communication, and the ability to move towards feelings. This should not be a first or “intake” session, but rather a mid-treatment snapshot.  If you can record it on Zoom and set it to Gallery view, that works best.  Also, please try to upload the video to YouTube and then send us the link. 

Ideal candidates should have solid experience with in-depth psychotherapy or assessment and an eagerness to expand and grow clinically. Clinicians are expected to work independently and maintain their caseloads with a high level of professionalism and care.  We are interested in candidates who are down-to-earth, kind, genuine, hard-working, creative, enthusiastic, emotionally healthy, and bright.

Answers to Common Questions from Applicants

  • Q – Is this a full-time, W2 position?  A – Yes!  We offer health insurance, 401(k) plan, free in house CE trainings, a bounty of clinical consultation and education, and more.   Full-time means 25 billable hours per week minimum to qualify for benefits. 
  • Q – Do I have to work set hours?  A – Nope!  You can choose when and where you work.  If you like Monday – Friday, 9-5, great!  If you want to work four days a week, awesome!  If you want to work on Saturdays or Sundays, more power to you!  You can also change your workflow whenever you choose.  
  • Q – Can I choose what clients I see (and what kinds of work I do)?  A – Absolutely.  We firmly believe that when you are doing the work you want in the way that you want, you will truly thrive.  As long as you are legally and ethically able to serve, we want to empower you to do so.  We turn away so many clients, which means you can be picky with who you work with and prioritize the fit. 
  • Q – Are there opportunities to supervise trainees? A – Yes!  From practicum students to postdoctoral fellows, we have an ongoing need for strong leaders to guide and mentor our trainees.
  • Q – How do you pay clinicians?  A – We operate via a split model that pays every two weeks based on a % of your client revenue.  The split is determined by licensure status, years of experience, years with the practice, niche service provision, and more.  Our average full-time clinician makes approximately $75k per year, though there is quite a bit of range ($60k – $140k) explained by caseload, license type, and a few other factors.  With the benefits we offer, the rates we are able to get for services, and the simplicity of the workflow, being part of DEP is equivalently lucrative to operating in private practice. 
  • Q – Do I have to schedule intakes, handle billing, or do administrative work?  A – No.  We have a team of folks that handle basically everything that isn’t part of seeing your clients and writing your notes.  All you have to focus on is the clinical part of being a clinician.
