Probably the most Badass therapist position ever!!!
Okay, now that we have your attention, let me skip right ahead to the blah blah blah part! Our thriving group practice, Peak Professional Group, PLLC is located in Apex, NC with a satellite office in Pittsboro, NC. We may be biased but…we are pretty sure that we are one of the most awesome counseling practice to work for, ever! And we really believe that we are changing the world (you will see what I mean when you check out our website at www.peakprofessionalgroup.com. Now, like any job, there are “good” parts and some “not so good parts” so let me jump right in!
Let’s get the “not so good parts” out of the way first:
It can take some time to build up a caseload (average is 30-60 days from hire date) but it also depends on what insurance panels we can get you credentialed with and how long that annoying process can take!
If you are seeking a job to support a household all on your own, plan your current exit strategy to ensure that you won’t be left short between leaving another place and getting started with us.
We don’t currently offer health insurance. Booooo, I know but it is what it is, so we do offer a wellness stipend that can be used for anything self-care related or wellness related aka massage, reike, drumming, medication copays!
On to the other side of life, the “good stuff”:
Our office is located on the second floor of Peakway Market Place and you have an opportunity to bust ass climbing stairs aka get your exercise in or have a lazy day and take the elevator. There is also a pretty cool trail that circles a small body of water and you are more than welcome to use it while not in session or to avoid doing your paperwork. Ducks and fishies included!
Our clients are awesome! Really, you get a wide variety of clients presenting problems to delve into so you are never bored and always being professionally challenged! We work with kids, teens, adults, couples and families. We even have a beautiful Play Therapy room for our younger clients! Want to run a group? Awesome, let's talk more!
We aren’t big on stress at Peak. Our jobs are tough enough without having a boss micro-manage your entire caseload and time. Our Admin Team works very hard to support us and take away most of the stress related to checking benefits, filing claims, collecting copays and scheduling initial assessments. We believe in the power of self-care and to this end we offer a wellness bonus with each paycheck to ensure that you are taking care of yourself! We also encourage everyone to work hard AND take the time needed for self-care. As long as you do your work, no one is trying to micro-manage your time with us. We do informal and more formal check-ins on a regular basis to make sure that you, the employee are happy and taking care of your needs!
You are “almost” in complete control of your own schedule! Our intake coordinator schedules the initial sessions with clients and then you get to schedule clients at your convenience, sounds great right? You get to come and go, see your clients and attend to your/your family's needs at the same time! We do ask for a few evenings (or a Saturday) a week to help meet the demands of our hard-working clients and school-aged clients, as well.
You will learn from a diverse team of professionals with many different perspectives and theoretical orientations. It is not uncommon to sit at the conference table, putting together a team puzzle together (literally, puzzles and other self-care activities-one each month) while learning from each other. Our team consists of therapists with well over 40 years in the industry- from clinical social workers to psychologists and, of course, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Professionals, like myself, the owner of Peak! We also do monthly case consultations and PAID bi-monthly team meetings where, I (the owner) get to torture you with fun team-building activities & roundtable discussions.
You get 5 days of PTO, $150 in CEU reimbursement, a wellness stipend, direct deposit, flexible scheduling, team-building activities like bowling, dinners out and exposure to the best freaking team of clinicians in the area including a badass admin team to support you!
We offer different employee tracks with different and creative benefits in each track:
Rockstar- this track is for emerging clinicians who have a good idea of what is going on clinically but need supervision, supervision, supervision to get fully licensed! Our team consists of licensed supervisors qualified to supervise (LCSWAs and LPCAs) all for FREE! We give you a wide variety of clients to work with so that you can become a well-rounded badass therapist! We help you figure out what you like and don’t like all through our professional mentoring program, offered strictly here at Peak!!!!!
Superstar- This track is for the more experienced clinicians who are looking to specialize, focus on continued professional growth and make a great living at the same time. We offer FREE coaching to help you decide on your area of specialization and can even help you pay for that special training that you want, collaborate on professional projects like book writing, groups, workshops, trainings and more! The sky is literally the limit!
Shooting Star- For those who are interested in starting their own private practice, this track is for you! Learn from some of the most successful private practice owners in the area, have access to Facebook groups for private practice, learn about networking and marketing your private practice so that you can become a shooting star that shines bright in the midnight light! Sounds great right? You will receive one-on-one professional private practice coaching from the owner of Peak and learn how to successfully transition into your own successful private practice without having to go through all of the mistakes that many of us have made already!
We aren’t a “stuffy” practice! We are laid-back and super cool to work around. You won't find anyone as authentic as myself. I believe in and preach the power of intentional badassery and authenticity! We offer a truly authentic place of employment which means, while we want everyone to be “professional” we also want you to be true to you. If we can’t be authentic and real, our clients may not trust us and the clinician/client match is of utmost importance! Truly authentic (or working towards, LOL) therapists are welcomed here at our practice. We live and breath the mission of our practice and each of us offers pro-bono sessions (if you are able to) as part of our dedication to helping the community.
We have office-based (Apex & Pittsboro), school- based (Chatham County) and even a new telehealth option where you work from home providing therapy in the comfort of your home office! You can work part-time, full-time or whatever time you want. You can even supplement your own private practice if you aren't interested in messing around with billing and insurance claims!
