We are now hiring master's level and fully-licensed therapists

Bloom Counseling and Nutrition, a private practice in Fort Collins, is seeking an experienced master's level or fully-licensed clinician to join our growing and compassionate eating disorder treatment team. As a practice and team, we care deeply about each other above and beyond anything as that forms the foundation for being able to offer care and support to our clients. We are humans showing up in the room to support other humans. While clinical skills are a priority, none of it matters if we don’t show and support our human selves first.

 

Founded and led by the only Certified Eating Disorder Specialist in Fort Collins, Kelly launched Bloom in response to a growing community need for individualized and holistic treatment options for folx seeking recovery from eating disorders as well as food & body struggles. Bloom aspires to create a safe space for individuals to find freedom in food, movement, and body by connecting to the truest version of themselves. Our team at Bloom is intentionally small for the benefit of both our clinicians and our clients. We aim to offer collaborative, comprehensive care tailored to our clients' individual needs AND we prioritize our clinicians' wellbeing, self-care, and experience in this process of supporting our clients. Kelly loves to joke that one of her goals is to create a practice and team that clinicians never want to leave!

 

As a practice, our culture is grounded in the principles of Health at Every Size (HAES), compassion and respect for all bodies, and the causes of social justice. In addition to alignment with these values, we love having clinicians on our team who bring niche specialties, training experiences, and passions that contribute to our team as a whole. We are also open to anyone who demonstrates a strong desire to learn and grow as a person and clinician.

 

Bloom hires therapists wanting to work as a team, collaborate, and support others (both our clients and each other). As we continue to grow to serve our amazing community, we value hiring clinicians of varying backgrounds and specialties to better serve the diverse experiences of our clients.
