Job Description

Southwest Cares is growing and expanding in the Las Cruces area.  With the strength of our multi-disciplinary team, we provide individual and group psychotherapy, psychological assessment, as well as psychiatric evaluations and medication management. We are seeking full and part-time psychologists to join our outstanding team of behavioral health clinicians. Psychologists can build a practice within this model based upon clinical expertise and interest area(s). 

We only invite independently licensed clinicians to join our team. Through committed adherence to the highest levels of clinical care and professional standards, we enjoy great professional regard from the patients and facilities whom we serve. Our providers also value the income stability and peace of mind that comes from being a member of a group that adheres to the highest ethical and professional standards. 

We serve patients with a wide array of mental health diagnoses. The work is complex, clinically rich, highly rewarding and extremely meaningful. We foster professional autonomy within a system that is supportive and empowering. Our team atmosphere is patient-centered with a strong emphasis on collaboration and open communication. Our company growth plans and trajectory may also offer clinicians the chance for an expanded leadership/business development role.

For clinicians who join our company, Southwest Cares takes care of all billing, insurance, and other administrative matters. Our administrative team also undertakes the credentialing/paneling process for Medicare, Medicaid, Centennial payers, and insurance companies. In so doing, Southwest Cares eliminates most of the administrative difficulties that a private practice psychologist can experience. This results in more time being available for clinical services, less administrative downtime/stress and therefore greater income potential.
