If you didn't know already, most online therapy companies hire therapists as 1099 contractors rather than W-2 employees. In this video, we cover some of the differences between these two forms of work.
One big difference between brick and mortar and teletherapy is that teletherapy support is much more accessible. At Lighthouse Therapy, we keep therapists connected through group chats which allows them to get feedback in an instant. We also assign mentors to help answer questions, and we have monthly round table discussions to provide additional support.
When you are a contractor instead of an employee, you have many more freedoms. One of which is being fully in charge of your schedule. You get to choose how many hours you work as well your availability.
Besides a computer and mouse, several tools will make your life easier as an online therapist. We cover the list of items that will make working from home a breeze.
Contracts can feel overwhelming, and the legalese can be confusing. In this short class, Erin explains how to avoid ambiguous language, set payment terms, and watch out for line items you can't bill for.
