Postdoctoral Fellowship Opportunities in Group Private Practice
Great Life Counseling Center is offering a very unique group private practice opportunity to 3 gifted & highly motivated postdoctoral fellows! Great Life Counseling Center (GLCC) is a private counseling center based in Addison, TX, which provides a variety of psychological services and specializes in marriage/couples, child/family issues, faith and existential exploration, relational/emotional trauma, and individual adjustment or life transitions.
Selected candidates will initially be offered a one year 1099 independent contractor agreement to build a private practice business with the support & infrastructure of the Great Life Counseling Center platform. Following the first 4 months of the initial contract, the postdoctoral fellow may be offered the opportunity to interview for a longer term contract with GLCC. These offers are based on positions available following the initial contract year and the clinician's fit with the culture of the team. Applicants interested in being a part of a group practice for their long term career are preferred. Regardless, the selected clinicians will receive training on the business of private practice and, following the clinician's completion of their agreement term, the Great Life team will offer guidance & support for the successful launch of their own solo practice.
Responsibilities and Duties
The group's mission statement is 'to strengthen relationships and enhance lives in support of healthier families and communities.' In pursuit of this mission, the members of the group share a common interest in working with families, doing outreach/networking in the community, and collaborating with other members of the team. To increase collaboration, every member of the team specializes in or at least shares a strong interest in working with couples and/or kids & their parents.
The selected candidates must be self-starters with a desire to learn how to build and maintain a full time private practice with an interest in a caseload that will be largely comprised (i.e., at least 40%) of work with couples and/or children. While psychotherapy is the primary modality of treatment, first year GLCC clinicians are expected to have sufficient training to contribute a portion of their clinical hours to child and adult assessment work as well. Networking and public speaking are also important skills for business development. Thus, solid skills or at least an interest in growing in these areas is required.
All GLCC clinicians are expected to demonstrate an eagerness to learn and contribute to the success of the group as a whole while independently attending to the details of growing their own practice (i.e., managing caseload, administrative duties/projects, and schedule for getting things done). GLCC clinicians strive to meet a weekly target of 25 scheduled psychotherapy sessions per week plus at least two hours per week of marketing/networking. Postdoctoral Fellows will also be expected to co-lead practicum group supervision meetings each week for practicum students and actively participate in GLCC's weekly consultation meetings and promotional events.
Qualifications and Skills
Applicants must have earned their doctorate degree in psychology from an APA accredited program and the degree must be conferred no later than Sept. 1st, 2020. Strong writing skills and a background in child and adult psychological assessment (cognitive, adaptive, LD/ADHD evals, career assessments, etc.) is required, as is the ability to learn quickly and integrate new information and techniques. Experience or interest in cultural diversity and trauma work is also strongly preferred.
Estimated Income: Monthly compensation starts with a stipend base + high productivity commissions for the first six pay periods. After six months, compensation will increase with a shift to complete commissions based on the postdoctoral fellow's revenue collections from a fully developed caseload. $55-65k is a conservative range based on the performances of recent postdoctoral fellows.
