Unique Financial and Supervisory Group Practice Opportunity: are you a solo practitioner who has been considering joining a group practice where you could hire additional therapists, explore supervising and increasing your income and your client caseload?
Resilience Lab is expanding and looking for seasoned therapists who love to practice, teach and mentor. We are seeking therapists in Manhattan and Brooklyn, who want to develop an existing client portfolio, have a few hours each week to provide clinical supervision, and who want the financial advantages of having your own group practice without the terrifying isolation of being a business owner.
Become a Resilience Lab Clinical Director with the resources and support of the professional learning community of the Resilience Lab. This is ideal for a psychotherapist who has been working in a group practice or independently for 5-plus years and who feels ready to increase their income and their client load. You might have been teaching and want to start supervising but not want the learning curve and expense of hiring clinicians, renting an office space and managing the technology/legal/accounting/marketing aspects of running a business.
There are opportunities in Upper West Side, Upper East Side, Brooklyn, Union Square, Tribeca, Harlem or Financial District based, licenced therapists (LCSW’s, PsyD’s, PhD’s) who would like to evolve their career from full-time private practice to becoming a member of a peer learning community of psychotherapists that are supervising clinicians, and together changing the way psychotherapy is being practiced in New York.
Having launched one year ago, we are building the largest network of psychotherapy clinics across NYC. Our goal is to provide the greatest access to the greatest number of New Yorkers of high quality, out-of-network, psychotherapy. We offer psychotherapy that is simple (a location close to the client and easy to find both online and offline), personalized (a therapist that is matched to the needs of the client and available when needed) and affordable (starting at $100 per session). We currently have four locations in Soho, Bryant Park, FlatIron, and Chelsea, and we are focusing on opening the next locations by bringing new senior clinicians onto our team.
Each location is organized around one supervisor and 5 clinicians. We offer ongoing evidence-based training, support and supervision to our clinicians. Our practice does not accept in-network insurance but works with clients who have out-of-network benefits and with some sliding scale. Clients are matched to each clinician individually for fit so there is a bit of a build-up period to reach full-time schedule of 25 clients per clinician weekly.
Based in NY, the location of site will be chosen by the Clinical Director choice in Manhattan or Brooklyn. The Clinical director will report to the Resilience Lab CEO, and will be an Employee of Resilience Psychotherapy, PC
For the new Clinical Director that joins us:
- We provide the physical location for the office.
- We provide all non-clinical infrastructure (EMR system, HIPPA compliant software, billing, web presence and e-marketing).
- We source and hire five therapists that create the new team working with the supervisor.
- We provide the clients that are needed to fill the work caseloads of the Clinical Director and those 5 therapists.
=> this creates a unique learning and mentoring environment as well as significant financial revenue opportunity.
Our college of supervisors currently has 4 members and will be enlarged with our search for new senior Clinicians. Together:
- We act as a creative agency serving the needs of our therapists that we mentor, train and supervise.
- We act as a learning community of clinicians and are building the largest group practicing and delivering evidence-based therapy based on the most diverse and complementary set of skills and backgrounds.
- We are building a new brand that clients can trust when looking for the best place in New York to find help and support. Our clients learn the skills they need to master to be their best possible selves.
