(If it wasn’t, the rest of us wouldn’t be here.)

Westside is a culture-first organization: how employees feel every day is our priority. The Westside Way values are our foundation for achieving G.R.E.AT. Outcomes.

The Westside Way culture is non-negotiable. We love it too much.

Westside does not look for good employees; we look for great employees. Westside does not hire people looking for jobs; we hire people looking to fulfill their calling. Our therapists are not only interested in working with kids; they have a wear-it-on-their-sleeves, see-it-on-their-face, burning passion for changing kids’ lives. 

We hire people who are committed to personal leadership development. We help you build the soft-skills, mindsets, and behaviors that elite leaders exhibit. Our leaders ask themselves: “Why would someone follow me?” and ensure their answer is anchored in a commitment to care about, support, and build trust with their team.

Westside believes that it is only great therapists that can build a great company. Therapists come first here. If you are a great therapist with a feverish passion for helping kids, have a go-getter attitude for fostering actual leadership behaviors, and know how to be a true team player, what are you waiting for? Apply today!

Our values come to life through mindsets, behaviors, and traditions that have formed at Westside over the years. We realize that our culture’s personality may not be for everybody, and that’s okay. But if you read about it and jump with excitement, let’s talk.

Westsiders embrace attitudes that accelerate learning.

We stay students and always ask for help.

We take our jobs seriously but not ourselves.

We avoid giving negativity the company it craves.

We welcome mistakes and learn from them.

We check our egos at the door because we learn more when we’re humble.

Westsiders view their work as a calling, not just a job.

We forget that “our kids” are not really “our kids."

We do work we are proud of for people that we care about.

We live with deep passion – if we’re going to spend the majority of our week doing something, we want our effort to make an impact!

We get excited at throwing parent appreciation events for our families.

Westsiders view themselves as a part of a team of teams.

We give credit to others when the team succeeds and introspect when it fails.

We assume positive intent before judging others.

We know that thanks and praise are in infinite supply and use them authentically and frequently.

We believe enthusiasm is a contagion - we’re carriers!

Westsiders are light-hearted and a little goofy, too.

Hiding “Rick Roll” videos in email chains is an old habit we can’t kick.

We once had a singing woman in a chicken suit interrupt a staff meeting.

Our currency for peer appreciation is golden statues of corn.

Every month we celebrate our “Westside World Champions of the Universe.”


We welcome everyone at Westside. We thrive on each other’s differences in background, culture, gender, ethnicity, religion, and personality.
Our diversity fuels our innovation. Our differences are the sources of our connections. Learning from each other’s uniqueness is what expands our capacity for empathy and understanding. We are stronger teams because of what each of us brings.
We aim to cultivate an environment where people feel safe enough to let their personality shine. Be you. Be unique. Be proud of who you are. Sharing our individuality with one another reminds us of the sense of humanity that binds us all.
Westside was built for everyone that can further our mission of changing kids’ lives, including the kind soul behind the eyes reading this right now. We invite you – yes you! –  to be included on our collective journey of creating an enviable culture that empowers each and every teammate.
