Private practice job opportunity--Life Counseling Institute, a private counseling practice located in the western Chicago suburb of Willowbrook (near Hinsdale, Oak Brook) is seeking therapists with training in couples counseling. Highest preference given to experienced, fully licensed therapists interested in focusing on clinical work in a supportive, collegial setting without the hassle of practice management. Because our therapists are employees, this is also a great opportunity for exceptionally skilled newer therapists working toward independent licensure.
Our practice focuses on the needs of suburban men and women, moms, couples, families, young adults, teens, and children and tends to attract highly educated, high-functioning clients. Candidates should be proactive, self-assured, attuned, and highly attentive and engaging with clients, with solid clinical judgement and decision making ability. We offer a wonderfully collegial work environment with an amazing group of clinicians, highly competitive salary, quality supervision/consultation, and a beautiful office setting.
Candidates must be able to work two to three evenings per week beginning no later than 4 pm and attend weekly supervision/consultation at 2 pm. Weekend hours are also an option for seeing clients. The hired individual will start with one client and develop a caseload over time; opportunity to progress to full time depending on performance.
Full time employees are eligible for BCBS PPO health insurance and retirement plan. Highest preference given to candidates with training in emotion-focused couples therapy (EFT) and/or evidence-based treatment of serious anxiety disorders. You must have already received (not just applied for) at least initial level licensure (LPC/LCPC, AMFT/LMFT, LCSW) from the Illinois Department of Regulation to apply. No phone calls please. Please send resume and cover letter to email@example.com.
Master's degree, licensure in the state of Illinois, two years experience.
