Hear from Clinical Director, EMilY HORNING

 

 

What We Promise:

  • Hands-on, Immersive Training:
    • Licensure-required supervision is provided in-house (or outside, as necessary) for all clinicians, at no-cost to most clinicians
    • Specific spot-work supervision is also provided (e.g., separate couples counseling supervision), at no-cost to most clinicians
    • Monthly Change, Inc. 101 Workshops where in-house clinicians are paid to present to one another within their areas of expertise/training/certification
    • Group consultations with paid experts in the field (e.g., Dr. Jeffrey Kottler)
  • The Most Competitive Starting Mental Health Salaries in St. Louis: Our compensation model means new clinicians make full-time salaries (average $45-$55K per year) working just 3 days per week!

     

  • 3-Day Work Week: Clinicians are only required to be in the office working 3 days per week, and otherwise are asked to check email about every 24 hours; Any infrequent ad hoc meetings or requirements are compensated at an hourly rate, and supervision is paid for!!! 
  • No recruiting involved:  Clinicians’ caseloads are built entirely for them in 60-90-days.
  • Group Experiences: Once per quarter, outside facilitators lead day-long group therapy experiences **for our therapists** to process the difficult work of being clinicians. There is nothing like this offered anywhere else in STL!!!

  • Social Events: Three times per year, Change, Inc. pays for social events for clinicians and staff to be together in a social setting with no agenda but to have fun and relax.
  • Opportunities for Growth and Advancement: Most all of our clinicians go on to become clinical mentors or licensure supervisors, or to fulfill leadership functions within our environment.

  • Low-Turnover: Whereas it is a generally accepted fact that most mental health work has a high-turnover/burn-out rate, Change, Inc. turns over 6% or less of our staff per year.
