Abundant Living Counseling of Rome is hiring part to full time therapist- hybrid or telehealth.

You’re a faith driven individual who is drawn to helping those with hurting hearts and you’re looking for a way to walk out your mission in your work. You are quick to put others at ease and people naturally want to tell you their stories. You are drawn to those who have been hurt by significant trauma in their lives and you have had the honor of guiding these people to healing their past brokenness. You are a nurturer, a believer, and you thrive in relationship with others.

Feeling a tugging on your heart yet?

Abundant Living Counseling of Rome is looking for someone just like you to partner with to heal hearts, restore souls and foster connection in relationships with others and with God.

We offer a faith centered work environment. All that we do is with the goal of honoring God and loving others well. Our employees reflect the compassion and love of Christ to the best of our abilities – not only with our clients, but also with each other, making this a peaceful, no-drama workplace.

Let’s just go ahead and get the unfortunate details out of the way. The hours we need availability are 4-8 PM, Monday through Friday. On Saturdays we would expect you to see six clients. Since this is a telehealth/hybrid position you have the liberty to schedule those Saturday sessions at whatever times work best for you and your clients.

At first we are asking for a minimum of 15 sessions per week, but if you are interested in growing your caseload that number can expand quickly. If this is a second job for you, it is important for you to be a clinician who is able to set strong boundaries with your clients and know how to practice self care.

I haven't lost you yet? Great! Now let’s talk about the good stuff. You’ll have a ton of autonomy but also the support and collaboration of a team when you need it. We offer the opportunity to develop a caseload specific to your talents and specialties. AND we have a rockstar client care coordinator who screens and schedules all new clients, so you can concentrate on caring for your clients well and establishing a strong trusting relationship with them.

Now for the great stuff! We are a 100% self pay practice. Your clients will always pay at the time of service so you never have to worry about getting a paycheck. There are no complications of denied claims and delayed payments from the insurance companies. You don’t ever have to argue about a diagnosis or justify the amount of time you spend with a client on an area of concern. Does that make your shoulders relax and cause you to breathe a sigh of relief? Well just wait….there’s more!

We will keep the clients coming your way in a steady stream of referrals. No joke. We have our own marketing specialist to help make that happen! Also, we offer a continuing education stipend to help you become an expert in YOUR area of interest. So all you have to do is use your expertise to help heal the hearts of hurting clients…and stay on top of your notes ;)

You’ll thrive in this role if…

*You believe that this is a calling, not just a career

*You are comfortable integrating faith into the therapy session (at the client’s comfort level of course!)

*You enjoy having the freedom and autonomy to work on your own, but also enjoy collaboration and community

*You are familiar and comfortable with technology and have provided telehealth services previously

*You are exceptional at communication via email/text, as well as through video and face to face

*You are a confident decision maker

*You are excellent at maintaining boundaries and managing self care

DETAILS IN A NUTSHELL:

POSITION: Part time (15 sessions/week) with potential to move to full time (28-30 sessions/week)

PAY: $25-$55/session, depending on licensure and experience. Please note that this is a W2 position, so we pay half of your employment taxes :)

LOCATION: Hybrid or telehealth

MINIMUM REQUREMENTS:

*Masters degree in Counseling, Social Work, Marriage and Family or related mental health field

*Minimum two years clinical experience providing psychotherapy and/or counseling

*Associate or Fully licensed in discipline by appropriate state board (e.g., LPC, LMFT, LCSW).

*Candidates with experience in marriage/couples counseling get bonus points!

Sound like the perfect place for you to grow your career and walk within your calling?
