Mental Health Therapist

Welcome to Work/Life Balance

Outpatient Mental Health Therapist: Full-time

Posted 03/17/2024

About our Practice

We are proud to create a work place that strives for the perfect balance between the benefits of private practice (choose your own schedule, pick your favorite clients, work for a group practice that is truly about supporting you and your interests) along with the benefits of agency work (close-knit team who deeply cares for each other, consistent paychecks, paid time off, coverage when on vacation, benefits, in-house administrative and billing team)

  • We offer various position types which cater to different career ideals desired along with a flexible benefit package, or Cafeteria Benefits Plan, that ensures each employee receives the benefits most desired.
  • We highly encourage and support therapists choosing their ideal case types and population. We strongly believe that when the therapist is successful and happy, the client is successful, and when the client is successful, our group practice is successful. We are against a one-size-fits-all approach to supporting your caseload.
  • We provide consultation or supervision to therapists at no cost.
  • Our group practice affords a wonderful location, beautifully decorated offices, professional location with ample parking for clients and free parking for staff.
  • A full administrative and billing staff to ensure a level of legal, emotional, financial, and physical security.
  • Customized Medical, Vision and Dental benefits package to meet every person’s need and CFS pays a portion of the premium
  • $1200 a year stipend per year for education, consultation or certification, $600 for part-time staff
  • Retirement plan. We match an employee’s contribution up to 3%.
  • Complementary life insurance policy
  • Reimburse up to $150 per year for individual malpractice insurance.
  • We offer 8 paid holidays, 7 paid personal/sick days per year.
  • 3-5.2 weeks of vacation depending on the cafeteria plan chosen
  • Our Client Support Specialists backfill open appointments to help condense your workday
  • Administrative and billing staff collect all client balance and fees so therapists don’t have to
  • We charge and collect late cancel or no-show fees from clients so you get paid for those hours when collected.
  • We have built one of the most supportive, caring, compassionate, fun and lively group practices and have truly become a family.
  • Lastly, unlike private practice where you get paid when the insurance company decides to pay you (a feast and famine approach), we are able to pay our therapists for their billed hours every 2 weeks. Claim denials or claw backs are not put on the therapist.
