Psychotherapist (part- or full-time)


Metrowest Nutrition is looking for a part- or full-time psychotherapist with eating disorder experience to join our multi-disciplinary group practice. We have three office locations - Newton Centre, Framingham and Westborough, MA and are currently practicing in a hybrid model, providing both in-office and remote telehealth services to our clients.


Position Overview:  We are seeking a fully licensed psychotherapist (LICSW, PhD, PsyD, LMHC) to join our practice for a hybrid in-person and/or exclusively remote, telehealth role.  Experience and training in Family-Based Therapy, DBT, ACT and trauma is highly preferred.  Candidates must be fully licensed in the state of Massachusetts.  A minimum of one year working with eating disorders, preferably with adolescents and adults is required.   Must be growth-oriented, enjoy learning and collaborating with others and committed to the mission of our organization.


About Our Practice:  Metrowest Nutrition is a multi-disciplinary group practice dedicated to helping individuals heal their relationship with food, movement and body.  Our therapists specialize in eating disorders, disordered eating,  adolescent health, emerging adults, trauma, mood disorders.

Originating as a nutrition counseling practice,  our services now include psychotherapy, occupational therapy and movement therapy.  Our physical offices are in Newton Centre, Framingham and Westborough.  We operate from an inclusive Health at Every Size (HAES) model and are committed to creating a space for diversity both within our team and for our clients.  We strongly believe that whole-person healing includes a close, compassionate investigation into all components of wellbeing: physical, psychosocial, emotional and economic while honoring an individual's cultural identity.


Diversity, equity and inclusion are central to our mission at Metrowest Nutrition.

  • We strive to create a space for growth and learning around racial and gender equality
  • We hire staff with a strong commitment to diversity, inclusion and equity
  • We provide our BIPOC clinicians with affinity group supervision and have engaged a DEI consultant to provide ongoing training and support as we strive to create a space for diversity.

Metrowest Nutrition provides strong clinical and administrative support, ongoing opportunities for training and a steady flow of referrals to clinicians. Candidate must be independent, driven, collaborative, and enhance our fun, connected, and positive minded group of clinicians.


Our Values:  Metrowest Nutrition lives by values that guide who we are as a team and how we serve our community. We hire staff who share these values.


Creating strong relationships:   We value building strong relationships and community within our team and helping our clients do the same. It’s also a hallmark of our business to promote strong, lasting bonds within our team and to work collaboratively both in the office and out in the community.


Investing in quality: We’re committed to providing an optimal environment to care for our clients and our team. Our commitment is seen in our beautiful workspace for our employees and a comforting space for our clients, a collaborative environment for our team, and wrap around services for our clients. We offer extensive ongoing training including regular presentations and retreats, weekly supervision and ongoing support, a membership to EDRDpro and access to Marci Anderson’s training, to enable our clinicians provide exceptional clinical services to our clients.


Promoting inclusion: We strive to create a space for diversity, hiring clinicians of varying backgrounds, beliefs, and specialties to better serve the diverse and unique experience of our clients. It’s also important that our office promotes a foundation of diversity, equity, and inclusivity in its culture and practice.  We offer regular diversity, equity and inclusion trainings and consultation and provide specialized affinity supervision to support our LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC clinicians and better support our clients.


Mentoring and growth:  We operate with a growth mindset and provide ample opportunities for ongoing growth and development both as an individual and as a team.  We strongly believe that a diverse team adds to our growth and provide affinity group supervision for our BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ team members.


Practicing from HAES/ Body Liberation Orientation:  At Metrowest Nutrition we practice EXCLUSIVELY from a trauma-informed, weight-neutral/body liberation HAES-aligned framework.  It is essential that any clinician who joins our practice is aligned with this philosophy.  We specialize in eating disorders, disordered eating, feeding issues, body image, women’s health, and athletic performance.  Ideally, clinicians have some experience in these areas prior to joining our team.
