"GET TO KNOW US" MORE ABOUT THE CENTER FOR CREATIVE ARTS THERAPY

The Center for Creative Arts Therapy is a premier counseling group practice nestled in the western suburbs that promotes work/life balance, creativity, wellness and professional success. As we continue to grow, we are looking for well-trained, talented and compassionate creative arts therapists who are dedicated to helping clients reach their full potential. We believe in healthy work/life balance not only for our clients, but for our therapists as well. Take a look at just some of the ways that the Center for Creative Arts Therapy provides a balanced and satisfying career.

Flexible Work Schedule. When a therapist needs time off, they work directly with their clients to change or reschedule sessions. Additional office space may be available for rescheduling as well. All therapists are responsible for their own caseloads, either at the part-time or full-time level with supervision. The Center for Creative Arts Therapy prides itself on being an excellent work environment for working parents, or for those with multiple sources of income. The Center for Creative Arts Therapy is open seven days a week with both morning and evening hours, and there are many scheduling combinations available.

Clinicians spend their time doing clinical work, not submitting claims and dealing with insurance. We have a separate billing and credentialing department that is responsible for insurance paneling, benefit quotes, and claims submissions. Therapists are only responsible for submitting a daily session log, making it efficient and easy for the therapists to focus on the clinical aspect of private practice.

Opportunity to work around others, while maintaining autonomy. The Center for Creative Arts Therapy is the best of both worlds for those who want the benefits of working autonomously, while also having the support of a team. Each office has their own community of therapists for support and consultation, and we formally meet monthly (in addition to informal gatherings throughout the year). We are always helping each other grow by sharing resources, information, and advice.

No need to prospect for new clients, we match clients with you. The Center for Creative Arts Therapy has a separate intake department that manages all new client inquiries by phone and email. The intake team gathers new clients’ information and matches them with a therapist based on availability, office location, and counseling needs. As more and more people are seeking therapy as a part of their wellness initiatives, The Center for Creative Arts Therapy is growing to meet these needs.

Strong support staff. In addition to our strong intake and billing departments at The Center for Creative Arts Therapy, we have administrative support staff that handle marketing, office maintenance, trainings and events, materials and resources, and much more. Our support team ensures that the office is running smoothly and efficiently. Our leadership team meets regularly to drive business and make sure our therapists only have to focus on their clinical work.

Opportunity for individual and group supervision/consultation. The Center for Creative Arts Therapy provides clinical supervision for therapists who are not fully licensed (LPC, LSW or AMFT). All therapists, even those licensed at the independent level, are encouraged to engage in consultation for ongoing support and professional growth. For convenience, we offer group consultation on a monthly basis.

Work in nice and contemporary offices designed specifically for creative arts therapists. The Center for Creative Arts Therapy has two art therapy studios, beautifully designed office spaces, a large movement and training room, and two fun waiting rooms complete with music, art and coffee bar. We are intentional in creating peaceful and inviting environments for our staff and our clients. Our support staff is continually looking for ways to improve our waiting areas and therapist rooms – making upgrades to furniture and amenities, and responding to our clients’ needs.

Strong earning potential. Compensation at The Center for Creative Arts Therapy is competitive, based on licensure, experience and tenure. Although any private practice arrangement will take time to initially build, we have a high volume of new client referrals to aid in this process. With a full caseload, our clinicians are earning strong and steady income year-round. The Center for Creative Arts Therapy also offers opportunities for compensation outside of clinical work, including contributing to the Center for Creative Arts Therapy blog and helping with marketing work and events.
