Emotional Fitness Instructors (Licensed Therapist) - Coa
San Francisco, CA, USA
Posted on Friday, June 2, 2023
We all experience mental health challenges in our lives, so why is accessing support still so stigmatized and archaic?
We are Coa: a venture-backed startup building the mental health experience that the 21st century needs, and leveraging technology to bring it to life. We're building the world’s first mental health & emotional fitness studio offering therapy and emotional fitness classes in a thoughtfully designed atmosphere that encourages connection and community.
Before we open our physical doors, we’re meeting the community where they are with a digital emotional fitness platform for therapist-led classes and community.
Emotional Fitness Instructor (Part-Time)
We're seeking experienced & licensed therapists to help us give society permission to feel. Our therapist-led emotional fitness classes help people learn the skills needed for mental and emotional health. As an emotional fitness instructor, you will work with us to develop and facilitate material based on the 7 traits of emotional fitness: self-awareness, empathy, play, mindfulness, communication, curiosity, and resilience. Our classes are interactive & experiential bringing together didactic, experiential, and discussion components.

Collaborate with our team of therapists on the emotional fitness curriculum team to develop and test ongoing new content and format for classes
Facilitate multiple classes per week (Monday-Friday) for our corporate clients and our consumer-facing community
Host live Q&As for our community on core emotional fitness and mental health topics (e.g., overcoming Imposter Syndrome, managing anxiety, romantic relationships, & more!)
Rapidly iterate on class content and structure based on participant feedback

Why join us?
Tackle an urgent problem in society and create a community-driven movement
We are building a movement to shift the narrative around therapy from being something you only do when you're unwell to something you do to build & maintain wellness. We want to change the way therapy is perceived and accessed in our culture.
Help shape the culture in addition to the brand
We're in the infant stages of Coa and joining us as one of the first few team members is a unique opportunity to become a true owner and meaningfully alter our trajectory.
