Seeking Licensed Clinicians

Talk-a-While, Child and Family Therapy Center PC is a group private practice where our mission is to provide licensed therapists with the opportunity to deliver high-quality therapy work in a dynamic group setting.  We believe that as therapists you provide the best care for clients, when you are taken care of too.  We, therefore, created an environment where our Talk-a-While support team does most of the advertising, marketing, and referral generation.  The support team also manages all billing aspects and most of clients’ scheduling needs. 

Our Center is dedicated to helping families develop relational resiliency and healthy family dynamics.
