    “I have never felt MORE supported in my entire working career than I have here at MCFS. I feel very lucky…I can safely say that MCFS has been the best, most hospitable, and non-stressful work environment I’ve been in.”

    — Thomas Stensland

They are always so prompt, warm, insightful, and incredibly supportive and I already feel like I’ve learned a lot and grown in my time here…I’m so grateful to be a part of such a talented, compassionate, dedicated team of individuals and as a therapist have always felt supported and connected. I love that I’m able to have a flexible schedule that works for my lifestyle and work with clients who are a good clinical fit.

    “When I am asked to describe what a healthy and supportive organizational culture is I use MCFS as an example. Therapists are treated with dignity and respect and are celebrated for their individual skills and strengths. MCFS allows me the freedom and flexibility to practice my way while still providing me with support and structure. In my twelve years of practicing therapy, I have never felt as valued as I have during my four years at MCFS.”

    “Since working for MCFS, there has always been an amazing amount of support provided by colleagues, administrative staff, and the directors. As the clinic has grown, the directors have been flexible, attentive, supportive, and collaborative with staff’s needs. The culture at MCFS provides a diverse setting for clinicians allowing them to work independently or in community with one another…My experience at MCFS has been the best of both working in private practice and working in a team setting.

    — Catherine Buckheit

    “The culture at MCFS is like a professional family who is always there when you need them…Most places put the client first and therapist second which leads to burnout. MCFS puts the therapist first so that the therapist can put the client first which leads to fulfillment…I feel truly supported both professional and personally by the MCFS leadership as they have always had my back when I needed help.”

    — Elijah Bolton

    “Working for MCFS is the breath of fresh air I had been looking for in my career path as a therapist. In joining this organization, I have found an incredible team of colleagues that I not only turn to for support and consultation, but who I am also privileged to learn from both personally and professionally. The leadership team provides guidance and direction when you need it, but is also trusting and understanding of the need for independence and autonomy in this work. At MCFS I feel respected and appreciated for the work I do, as well as seen for who I am, and I couldn’t think of a better place to provide care to our community.”
