Tired of Your Work Environment?

If you are looking for a change, contact Ellen at 914-747-3299 or email Your industry is changing and the challenges, expectations and professional environment of 2 years ago has changed.  Finding work and personal life balance is more difficult, feeling a sense of fulfillment in one’s career sometimes feels compromised, and a sense of being overwhelmed is more prevalent.

There are solutions and we are here to assist in figuring this out

Is a staff position better for you than per diem ?

A staff therapist who recently made the switch to per diem told me:
“Once you go per diem you will never go back”  Why ?  ” Because you can have full time hours with time flexibility, the pay is higher and you can choose where you want to work so you are happy.  It is easy to arrange assignments so you know your work schedule months in advance.  Also, you leave work and can focus on your personal life without worry.”
Want to discuss pros and cons ?  I have been placing staff and per diem therapists for many years and will take the time to go over how this arrangement might be beneficial for you.
Please call me any time Ellen: (914) 747-3299
