About Lyra
Lyra is transforming mental health care through technology with a human touch to help people feel emotionally healthy at work and at home. We work with industry leaders, such as Morgan Stanley, Uber, Amgen, and other Fortune 500 companies, to improve access to effective, high-quality mental health care for their employees and their families. With our innovative digital care platform and global provider network, 10 million people can receive the best care and feel better, faster. Founded by David Ebersman, former CFO of Facebook and Genentech, Lyra has raised more than $900 million in funding to support our mission of improving access to high quality mental healthcare.

FURTHER EXPANDING ACCESS: We are currently prioritizing hiring clinicians, counselors, mental health providers, psychologists, and therapists.

We will continue to welcome applications from all states, and sponsor cross-licensure across selected states to ensure clinicians are set up for success to support caseload goals. As always, thank you for your continued interest in Lyra Health!

About the Role

Lyra developed an innovative video therapy program called Lyra Care Therapy: blending live video sessions with between-session digital psychoeducation and customizable skill building tools. With this program, you’ll have the resources and support you need to ensure that your clients get better—all while improving access to mental health care from your home or preferred setting.

Daily: As a Lyra Care Therapist, you’ll provide short-term, evidence-based treatment via live video, maintaining a caseload of diverse and varied clinical needs. You’ll assign digital lessons, videos, and assessments to your clients to enhance learnings and monitor outcomes between sessions. An important note: Lyra's clients come from a multitude of different backgrounds and experiences, and have varying needs and abilities. We strive to continue to meet their unique needs by delivering culturally responsive care—an approach that accounts for the impact of cultural backgrounds on each person’s care experience.

Regularly:Our therapists enjoy connecting with their peers, who share a passion for providing evidence-based care. You’ll attend one-on-one and peer group clinical consultation meetings, conduct peer-based quality assurance reviews, and attend robust training to enhance your clinical skills. You’ll always have access to expert consultation and support for your most complex clients. It’s like a safety net of resources to help plan the best options—from specialty consultations to culturally responsive care—you’re not alone, even while working remotely within the US.

This role is a great fitif you're a licensed clinician with excellent interpersonal skills, who wants continuous growth and development in their professional career, and thrives in a feedback rich environment.
