Associate Mental Health Clinician

Website Inspired Life Counseling

A bourtique private practice focusing on attachment and trauma

Inspired Life Counseling is a small and growing business in Chico, CA 95926. We currently have a waiting list of about twenty clients and are looking for one associate clinician who can start right away, and one more who can start in January when the law changes and allows more associates.

We are professional, rewarding, and collaborative, and our goal is to provide high quality care to people who are experiencing difficult periods of their lives by maintaining an attachment and trauma-informed focus, maintaining our human authenticity during sessions, and maintaining our professional accumen by continually learning and growing as psychotherapists. Most of the clients who seek our services are people who have experienced traumatic events, couples therapy, or are teenagers. We do not see children under the age of 11.

At Inspired Life Counseling we deeply believe in our clinicians having a healthy work/life balance. Creating a culture of collaborative note taking during sessions, boundaries around how many clients are seen in a day so clinicians learn to balance clinical care with admin tasks such as notes, and providing office support with phones in the rooms and a helpful admin staff to connect with clients on your behalf, you can leave work at work when you go home to your families and social lives.

Our work environment includes:

  • Flexible working hours
  • Beautiful and professional office setting
  • Admin staff who can receive and make calls on your behalf as well as help with other tasks.
  • Professional billers who bill for us as out-of-network providers for PPO and in-network for MediCal Managed plans.  We also can bill a few private insurance companies for associates.
  • Base hourly pay plus bonus/commission (bonus/commission dependant upon billing amount, accounts receivable, and how many sessions provided per pay period). This ends up being the equivalent of $25-$52 per hour based on how many clients you see each week. — If you are an associate who only sees ten clients or less, you earn $25/hour, but the hourly pay rate is on a scale, so if you’re seeing 21 clients a week you could be making $50-55 an hour. We are looking for people desiring 21+ clients a week, we WANT to pay you more and we want to help as many people in the community as possible.
  • Autonomy over your working schedule. We don’t care what days or shifts you work, as long as you maintain your minimum commitment of clients on your caseload.  Prefer weekends so you can be home during the week?  Prefer evenings or school hours?  21 clients a week can be easily coordinated around non-traditional work hours.
  • Expectation of professional boundaries: keep work at work, we provide individual office lines for each therapy room so you can contact clients while at work and use an app to call them if you need to reschedule outside of the office. However, we have staff who can do that for you Mon-Thurs. No use of personal cell phones.
  • Paid supervision for associates with licensed clinicians who join periodically so associates can learn from a wide range of experience levels.
