We want to be straight with you right from the start. There are definitely reasons why you might not like us, so we want to share those up front too. We value your time and our time, so keep reading to see if we’re still a match.
- We have high expectations. We expect our therapists to be committed to their work. We have clinicians at different levels of experience and even provide internships for graduate students. So we know your clinical skills development may still be a work in progress. That’s ok. We provide supervision and support, but we expect you to do your best and to speak up when you’re not feeling confident so that we can help.
- You can’t cancel on your clients because you don’t feel like talking to them that day. Cancellations are for emergency situations only. We encourage our therapists to engage in healthy self care along with good time management.
- You must comply with our office policies. Policies are created to keep order, and we all know how much we need that!
You must prioritize documentation. We know it’s probably not your favorite part of the job, but we will do all we can to support you through tips and training. (Our goal is for therapists to complete notes in 10 minutes or less, and we train you in ways to be successful with that.) Proper documentation ensures our clients are being served properly and also fulfills compliance requirements of our funding sources.
