Urban Balance

Location: Chicago

End date: 2018-11-30


Urban Balance, a premier outpatient psychotherapy practice with multiple locations in Chicago and St. Louis, is expanding! We are expanding our existing teams in Chicago, the Chicagoland suburbs and St. Louis, and also opening a new office in Denver in June 2018. Our current hiring focus is on independently licensed psychotherapists (e.g., LCPC/LCSW/LMFT in Illinois; LPC/LCSW in Colorado and Missouri). These are 1099, independent contractor status positions, with no limitation on hours worked per week.

Founded in 2004, Urban Balance’s mission is to provide accessible, affordable and insurance-friendly psychotherapy services to individuals, couples and families. Our therapists are well-trained, talented and compassionate. We promote healing, growth and healthy work/life balance.

Responsibilities include:

Assess clients to determine fit for outpatient treatment, and establish provisional diagnosis and initial treatment plan.
Conduct individual, group, couples and/or family therapy in accordance with state regulations and professional licensure law(s).
If necessary, provide crisis intervention services to clients to ensure risk levels are properly managed and, when appropriate, triaged to higher level of care.
Maintain scheduling of all active clients to ensure clinical needs are being met.
Collect client payments based on quotes received.
Maintain collateral contact with client’s referring physician/professional, as well as any other pertinent treatment providers, to ensure optimum level of care.
Participate in consultation or supervision in accordance with licensure law(s).
Urban Balance is the best of both worlds for those who want the benefits of working autonomously, while also having the support of a team. Each office has their own community of therapists for support and consultation, encouraging our therapists to focus on their clinical work. We have an intake department that manages all prospective client inquiries and matches them with therapists based on availability and needs. In addition, our in-house billing department will oversee your credentialing process, as well as all client benefit quotes, claims submission and any additional support needed regarding network participation.

All candidates must be licensed and have evening and/or weekend availability, with the ability to schedule at least 12 hours per week, for consideration.
