We're a Fun, Relaxed Physical Therapy Clinic Looking For...
a Rockstar Physical Therapist!
Before we dive into roles and tasks, let me give a quick background on the company and why this position is going to be so important...
Monarch Physical Therapy was founded in 2011, by myself, Brenda Bryson, PT, LMT. I have been a Physical Therapist since 1997 (graduate of Texas Tech University Health Science Center). I started taking classes in a treatment technique called Myofascial Release from John F Barnes in 2003, and became a Massage Therapist in 2007.
I grew up on a ranch in Fredericksburg, and still love to be outside. I love the vibe of the big city, but it energizes me to be in nature. My great-great-grandfather came over from Prussia on the boat and my family has lived on the same land since 1851. So when I say I’m from here, I’m also related to most of my clients in some distant way. I’m used to treating everyone like family, and the clinic has a warm, relaxing vibe. This feeling is intentional and important—I want a safe, relaxing work environment, and I also want that for my patients. I’m in this for the long haul, so a client relationship does not end when they are discharged from my care, because , odds are, I will run into them at church or HEB.
We work as a team, and each team player has roles, but if a therapist is the only one around she will answer the phone or change a sheet, because that is part of keeping the clinic running well.
You are a physical therapist (bonus points if you are also a massage therapist) and are excellent at what you do. That is a given. You are also a human. You have personality. Clients feel relaxed around you and trust you with their care. You are mature to handle conversations about medical issues or discussing value of health care services.
This is a full time position, 5 days per week, with flexibility and communication being very important. We have an office in Comfort and Boerne, so the main work will occur in the Boerne office, with 1-2 days as needed in Comfort. We offer medical benefits and strive to have a low stress work environment that allows for high productivity.
Here are the primary characteristics a candidate must have for this important role in our company:
- A warm and calming demeanor and an affinity towards communicating comfortably with new people and making them feel welcome
- Natural empathy and compassion for those in pain
- Willingness to learn and implement feedback
- Strong attention to detail
- Lic. in Texas as a physical therapist, has taken at least 2 John F Barnes myofascial release continuing education classes prior to starting work here, and has at least 3 years of work experience beyond graduation from PT school
We are looking for a candidate who is able to adhere to the following core values:
People First, Patient Second: See the person as a human being and relate with them on that level, then find out what they need. Connect and Re-Direct. We believe that the person who walks in our door is the 1st priority.
Pursue Growth and Learning: We are a company of self-starters who are never satisfied with the status-quo. We are always learning and not afraid to try new things. Personal growth and development using open and honest communication and regular feedback is vital to our success.
Keep It Positive: We help patients achieve positive and hopeful outcomes. Pain is normal, our goal is to help our patients understand what it means.
Do More with Less: We keep things simple. We are constantly streamlining and automating wherever we can. We strive for essential communication with patients about their body, treatment, and exercises. Less chat, more communication!
Over Deliver/ Go Above and Beyond Expectations: Provide an exceptional experience that was never expected.
Be Fully Present: Give patients and your work 100% Attention.
Model Healthy and Active Lifestyle: “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” Exercise regularly, get regular treatment; be proactive about your health for your patients, friends & family.
Create Community: Patients are part of the Monarch PT family for life, through all ages and stages of life. Employees and staff are also connected and invested in serving the long term goals and mission of our practice. We are a family!
Be part of something bigger: Be a Yes and someone who is standing positively for what’s happening in your life and the lives you touch, and for what you want to have happen in your future (and your patient's future) - you’re a person who’s up to something bigger, and you can inspire our patients by showing up fully in your life.
The Successful Candidate...
The successful candidate will work for the owner of the business to ensure that these core values are present in the day to day running of the business – and ultimately, responsible for the successful growth of the business.
All hiring at Monarch Physical Therapy is made with these Core Values firmly in mind and we look forward to discussing them more with you at the interview - when we can also discuss other benefits and incentives of you choosing to join our team.
Excellent speaking/communication skills are also imperative. Outside of greeting and communicating with patients, you occasionally might have to answer the phone or be of assistance. We are a team here.
And finally, you need to know your way around the computer pretty well. I don’t mean you need to be able to code websites or anything … most of the technical/computer-based aspects of this job are easily trainable. What I’m saying is that I’ll need someone who is tech savvy so the training on various IT tasks goes smoothly and you are able to efficiently learn, navigate, and execute these tasks. We use WebPT for our EMR, so daily documentation is fairly easy.
Please re-read the last few paragraphs and core values again and make sure you deeply believe they describe you. Every characteristic is highly important and written very deliberately.
If they do describe you, we would love to meet you!
Now, let’s dive into the details of your duties and how you can apply for this position if you feel excited about the opportunity...

- Therapists are hourly, with occasional down time for marketing, paperwork, or any task Brenda might need help with
- Treating patients one on one, for one hour sessions with manual therapy, maximum is 6 patients a day
