Job Title: APC, LPC, or LCSW for Full Time Position in Private Practice 

Job Summary:

Waypoint Psychotherapy, a secular, trauma-informed private practice in Kennesaw is seeking another therapist to join our thriving practice. The applicant may be either fully-licensed or provisionally licensed (Associate Professional Counselor). We can provide Directorship for an APC but not supervision for licensure purposes. For those under supervision, a stipend will be granted to cover the cost of outside supervision. 

 

Waypoint has been in business for six years: five years as a solo practice and one year as a two-person practice. Both our therapists have a full caseload and we are still receiving regular inquiries. We have a beautiful facility with well-appointed offices, and I have a full private office ready to furnish and customize for you. 

The position can be either as an employee (W4/W2) or contractor (1099). This is negotiable based on your needs. If you are employed elsewhere, I will also consider part-time to start while you build your case load here and transition to full-time.

I (Todd) can provide supervisory billing for an APC for those insurance companies that allow it, so this is a great opportunity for an APC to gain the extra caseload that being in-network with the major payers offers. 

For a fully licensed therapist, I can provide credentialing under our tax ID number. This process usually takes 30-60 days.

We offer EMDR and IFS to our clients, among other methods, for therapists who practice these modalities or are interested in learning them. We have also recently entered the field of Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) and will be exploring growth in that area. If you are interested in learning and bringing another treatment modality, we will be excited to help you achieve that. We will be setting up a space for group therapyand consultation, so if you have interest or experience in group modalities (especially DBT) we will be very interested.

 

The ideal candidate will:

  • Have a commitment to counseling from a secular worldview, regardless of personal faith, as this is a major concern for many in our target population and has been foundational to the success of the practice in attracting clients.

  • Be passionate about working with and learning about treating trauma and anxiety disorders.

  • Bring their own areas of interest, expertise and methodologies to complement what the practice already offers.

  • Be able to quickly set new clients at ease, make them feel liked and understood, and to inspire them with hope and confidence.

  • Be willing to work closely and collaboratively with the owner, as I am looking for a colleague, not just an employee.

  • Be comfortable with the nature of income in private practice.

 

I offer:

  • A steady flow of clients, averaging one to five new clients per week.

  • A generous starting commission with opportunities for increase over time.

  • Directorship towards licensure.

  • Flexible hours: You determine your schedule so long as you meet the minimum caseload.

  • Supervisory billing for several major insurers, allowing you to accept insurance in some cases while in pursuit of independent licensure.

  • Monthly allowance to compensate for outside supervision.

  • Psychology Today listing, marketing materials, required technologies, professional liability insurance, and continuing education courses paid for by the practice.

  • Insurance credentialing once you become fully licensed.

  • A beautifully furnished, dedicated office space in a peaceful environment and a great location.

 

Responsibilities

  • Provide effective, caring, in-person counseling and psychotherapy services in-person.

  • Complete client progress notes, assessments, diagnoses and treatment plans in a timely and accurate manner.

  • Adhere to pursuit-of-licensure requirements as laid out by the Composite Board.

  • Participate in weekly supervision and or consultation meetings as scheduled.

  • Adhere to the code of ethics of the appropriate discipline.

Earnings

As with most private practices, earnings are on a commission basis (a percentage, paid when the practice gets paid). Payroll will be run weekly, with payouts made for funds posted the previous week. It can take a number of weeks to reach a full-time caseload, so income will start small but should grow quickly (unless you bring your own client load). Realistic expected earnings with a full-time caseload of 20 to 30 clients per week are between 4,500 and 6,500 per month. A fully-licensed therapist may have the ability to earn more.

 

Interested candidates should send a CV and statement of interest to:
