Job description

Lots of great practices are hiring for good money; you can afford to be choosy about fit. 

We love that, because we’re a practice of punks and weirdos who struggled to “fit” into old constructs. Satya Counseling PLLC is a haven for creatives, the LGBTQ+ community, trauma survivors, and others who feel isolated or experience oppression. We’re activists helping the helpers, and we are looking for a few more team members who share our vision and passion.  

Ideal team members are: 

  • Licensed to practice in Illinois with a Masters’ or Doctoral degree (LPC, LSW, MFT, LCPC, LCSW, LMFT, CP)
  • Passionate about social justice, decreasing stigma, and practicing with an anti-racist, anti-oppression lens
  • Experienced providing individual or relationship therapy with trauma survivors, the LGBTQ+ community, creatives, CNM, and/or kink
  • Experienced in and/or excited about one or more of our primary modalities: ACT, DBT, IFS, DARe, or the Gottman Method 
  • Tech-savvy and confident with standard EHR, video therapy, and basic office software
  • Curious and eager to engage in monthly team and one-on-one consultations
  • Dedicated to sharing evidence-based treatment with warmth and humor

  Our team receives:

  • Competitive W-2 hourly rate commensurate with licensure
  • Multiple bonus opportunities
  • Paid sick time 
  • Administrative support: scheduling, inquiries, credentialing, billing
  • A supportive, collaborative work environment 
  • Malpractice insurance
  • Training and resources including:  ever-growing digital library, annual Association of Contextual Behavioral Science World Conference admission (includes CEUs), video training program options, dedicated training and support for new hires 
  • Paid time off at 15+ clinical hours/week
  • Dental, vision, and BCBS health insurance with 50% employer contribution for employee at 20+ clinical hours/week
  • Schedule design flexibility
  • Supervision for provisional licensure

We asked our clinicians, “What are some of your favorite things about working here?” They said: 

  • “[The] prioritization of clinicians’ well-being so we can take care of clients.” 
  • “The environment celebrates being a good clinician and fosters forward growth.” 
  • “Tons of resources.” 
  • “Working with like-minded people in a place where individuality is celebrated.” 
  • “The support and leadership.” 
  • “An awesome client base.” 
  • “The ability to be yourself.”

A few more logistics: 

  • Sessions are exclusively telehealth with intention to return to a hybrid model (1-2 days a week in the office) in the near future. 
  • Clinicians can choose working from our Jefferson Park office or telecommuting for virtual sessions. 
  • Clinicians have significant flexibility in choosing their ideal schedule, with the expectation of 6 “peak hours” (after 5pm weekdays or daytime Saturdays).  
  • Open positions are part-time (15 – 19 sessions/week) or full-time (20+ sessions/week, maximum 28).
  • Clinicians start with orientation, training, and a few sessions in their first week. We support them increasing gradually to their target hours.   
  • Hourly range below reflects part-time provisionally-licensed to fully-scheduled doctoral-licensed rates.
