Are you ready for a promotion? Do you love to lead and inspire your colleagues or team? Do you want to expand your professional skills beyond counseling? Are you ready to create a positive culture for a new team?

Inspire Counseling Center is opening a beautiful second location in the Winnetka area (just steps from a Metra drop off~ Union Pacific North Line). We need a Clinical Director to manage the new office, new team and be a founder for growth in this exciting new opportunity!

The Clinical Director is responsible for the management and development of all clinical and leadership staff of Inspire. The Clinical Director must think globally and make decisions independently that promote growth for Inspire. The Clinical Director must also maintain a minimum clinical caseload of 15-20 clients per week. This is a full-time position with both a salary and commission based fee structure, requiring 30+ hours of work per week.

Inspire Counseling Center is a fun, trendy, quickly-growing group private practice, with it’s flagship office in Northbrook. We have beautiful offices, free supervision, benefits, competitive pay and an ALL-STAR team of talent.

At Inspire, we want our therapists to be happy, so that they can do their best work with clients. We take good care of you, so you can take good care of everyone else. We’re dedicated to innovation and are constantly trying to improve our systems to make your experience and our clients experience excellent. We have leadership opportunities, as we meet both in a large all-staff meeting, as well as small teams for case consultation.

While we are buttoned up on business side (making sure you are well compensated), we like to have a chill vibe interpersonally with each other and our clients. We don’t think of ourselves as “therapists” helping “clients.” We are “people” supporting “people.” We believe every person is whole and complete.
