Welcome to work/life balance

Clinical Director

Posted September 10, 2022

Company Overview

We provide mental and behavioral health services to children through adults from a grounded theoretical orientation combined with various Evidence-Based Practices. Our group therapy practice has both full-time and part-time therapists who are enthusiastic and passionate about bringing about change in those they work serve. We employ a full administrative support staff who love what they do and love the clients we serve. Our workplace culture is centered around our values of: autonomy, transparency, inspire, life balance, family comes first, workplace relationships, appreciation, support and growth. We desire a Clinical Director who wants to foster these values in all that we do.

We are looking for a clinical supervisor who has a knack for building a cohesive and passionate team. Our ideal candidate not only has experience as a therapist and supervisor, but has an ability and drive to identify problem areas and work with an Executive Team to bring about meaningful change to ensure our practice stays therapist-driven and therapist-focused. We want someone who has excellent interpersonal skills, can successfully bring together a team, has a sense of humor that lights up a room and is passionate about clinical care.

Summary/Objective

The Clinical Director is a dynamic, respected, and unifying member of the Executive and Clinical Team and an integral to the ongoing success of our therapist-driven, therapist-run practice. The Clinical Director oversees all aspects of clinical care to clients and works with various departments to improve processes and procedures aimed at providing the best client experience while also reducing the administrative toll on therapists. In addition to the executive-level responsibilities, the Clinical Director is the direct report for therapists, supervisors and directors and provides quality consultation and supervision to clinical staff. The CFS consultation model not only ensures ethical and effective care to clients but helps to grow our therapist professionally as the “therapist-as-instrument.”
