Clinical Supervisor

Posted September 19, 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

A Clinical Supervisor is an integral part of our therapist-driven group practice and oversees clinical care to clients and 5-8  therapists would be directly reporting to each supervisor. The Clinical Supervisor remains rooted in the profession with a small caseload of clients, while also providing either consultation or supervision to members of their team. 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. We believe if our therapists are set up for success, our clients will succeed, and if our clients succeed our practice succeeds. The Clinical Supervisor reports to the Clinical Director and is a valued member of the Executive Team.
