Balanced Awakening PC

Clinical Psychologist, LCSW, LCPC

As a growing group psychotherapy practice for women, we are looking for psychotherapists to join our team and diversify & expand services for our clients. This is a great opportunity for someone who loves seeing psychotherapy clients full-time and wants to deepen their capacities as a healer. We are seeking candidates who are licensed or pre-licensed psychologists, or who have an LCSW or LCPC license to practice in Illinois. We may also consider recent MSW grads who need supervised experience as they work towards their LCSW.

See if you resonate with any of our current plans for expansion:

  • We’re training in Imago Relationship Therapy and as such will be expanding our couples therapy offerings over the next year. There will be additional opportunities to become trained in Imago in future years!
  • We’d love to have a therapist on board who incorporates David Elliott-style breathwork into their sessions. As such, we’d be supportive of a new hire being trained in this modality.
  • Art therapy is in demand. We are interested in hiring a second art therapist.
  • If you are someone who is interested in Somatic Experiencing, Hakomi Mindful Somatic Therapy, and/or Yoga Therapy, we’d like to bring these modalities to our clients.
  • Therapy for new moms is in high demand. If you are someone who has the Certification in Perinatal Mental Health or would like to pursue this, consider joining us.
  • We will be accepting clients with Aetna insurance in-network starting mid-March at attractive reimbursement rates. We’re planning for a large influx in client demand.
  • We have untapped potential with our Medicare contract. If you are someone who would enjoy working with the aging population of women, we would build this out.
  • Bring us a new idea! We are happy to learn about how your clinical passion might benefit our clients.

Currently, we prefer to hire full-time (25+ client hours/week) for hybrid positions that include 2 days of seeing clients in person at either our Lakeview or Andersonville offices. The rest of the week/your clients can be seen virtually from your home. If you prefer to be in the office for more days, we can also arrange that. Part-time and/or fully remote candidates will be considered if there's a strong match with BA.

We are seeking clinicians who are excited to be a part of our broader mission for the longer term and want to match the investment that Balanced Awakening makes in our clinicians to provide top-notch therapy and healing services.

Benefits Include:

  • Competitive pay, with no upper limit (no max clients you can see), based on revenue generated
  • Minimum guaranteed pay for the first 3 months as you are building your caseload
  • BCBS PPO health insurance with practice contribution
  • 401k with an automatic (nonelective) contribution made on your behalf
  • Life, long-term, and short-term disability insurance
  • Dental and vision plan options
  • Training stipend + in-house training opportunities
  • Team events, group client consultation, and exposure to new healing modalities


  • Master's level range will be $75,000 - $90,000 at 25+ clients/week.
  • The doctoral level range will be $90,000 - $120,000 at 25+ clients/week.


  • Maintain a caseload of your ideal psychotherapy clients (25+ per week as full-time with benefits).
  • Complete notes in our EHR for each client session.
  • Manage your email so that emails are attended to within 48 of your working hours.
  • Participate in an hourly quarterly (4x's year) team meeting and enjoy lunch with the team.
  • Maintain your license by completing necessary CEUs, engaging in ethical behavior, etc.
  • Otherwise, be who you’d like to be as a therapist and member of our team!


  • Licensed Psychologist/LCPC/LCSW/LMFT in the state of IL.
