Join the Practice
Our practice is continually expanding and we are frequently seeking Licensed Clinical Social Workers, Licensed Clinical Professional Counselors, and Licensed Psychologists to provide therapy and counseling services to clients at the Edwardsville and/or Maryville office. Administrative / support staff positions are also frequently available. We have job openings in Edwardsville and/or Maryville and are now hiring.
At this time, our group does not utilize the services of student interns or volunteers. We are not able to offer shadowing opportunities. Unfortunately, these requests cannot be accommodated.
Interested parties for any position posted below should email (preferred) or mail resume and cover letter to Brian Radzom at Brian@RadzomCounseling.com for consideration.
Staff Clinician - (Positions Typically Available)
Staff clinicians are masters-level (or higher) clinicians licensed to practice independently in Illinois. Clinicians provide individual, family, and/or couples counseling to clients in an outpatient, office setting. Our practice serves a diverse range of client ages, issues, and needs. Counselors are not expected to be able to practice in every area but are expected to have a wide range of clinical skills and/or specialized, targeted, experience in an area that serves a need in our practice. While supervision and consultation is provided to clinicians as desired and necessary, counselors are expected to be skilled, competent, and able to work independently. As such, clinicians are given the freedom to practice clinically in the manner they see fit within the confines of what is evidence-based, clinically appropriate, and within the policies and mission of the practice. Primary responsibilities are providing counseling and maintaining records. Infrequently, providers will be required to engage in other tasks such as contacting existing clients regarding ongoing clinical issues, responding to records requests, providing clinical information for authorizations, and other miscellaneous tasks that are not typical but sometimes occur. The practice is responsible for initial and ongoing insurance credentialing, insurance and client billing, managing and procuring referrals and initial appointments, marketing, furnished office space, supplies, and other administrative tasks and expenses. This is a great opportunity for counselors who are looking to focus their work on the clinical side of practice without the burden of the administrative elements.
Our practice strives to find highly motivated, quality, and committed counselors and match them with appropriate clients to help foster successful clinical outcomes. We view our relationship to the staff providers as one where we eliminate (as much as possible) the administrative burdens of a counseling practice so the counselor can remain focused on the client.
