If you notice any issues or areas of improvement going through the onboarding process, please let us know here. It is completely anonymous. We just appreciate the opportunity to improve and promise not take it personally, but utilize constructive feedback to the best of our abilities.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long is an offer good for?
Answer - As long as your license is in good standing, forever. We have had providers come back 6 months later to work with us.
What if I want to work remote?
Yes, we have a few providers who work exclusively remote. Telehealth is an option for all providers. We provide the platform and training. You would need to make sure your space is HIPAA compliant, but we are open to your best work environment.
Does you require a minimum number of sessions per week?
We have a minimum of 10 sessions per month after about 6 months, which we loosely enforce. We want to make sure you are growing and providing in the community. If you are not growing after 6 months, we will work with you if you are committed to try to grow, but we may not be the best fit at that point. We do not force clients to work with you, so they have to match with you and they have to choose you, so if you let people get to know you and respond to referral requests in a timely manner, you should do well!
Do I get my own office?
We do office sharing. This maximizes space and resources. There are office leads and office esthetics are dictated by the office lead and each offices main office user. We manage office space through this form.
Can I start my own office under Counseling Professionals PLLC
Yes, we would need to discuss it, but we are always looking to expand. We would be happy to set up a meeting to discuss your goals. You can contact CJ here to discuss it more. Normally we will reach out to our providers when we want to open a new office and see if someone wants to lead a new office or if someone moves to a new area and wants to continue to work with us, but start a new office there.
Can I negotiate for a better salary?
We have a very progressive pay structure that everyone has (Each Month Revenue is split 60%/40% for the first 1k in review and 80%/20% for each dollar over 1k in review), so we value your value and your desire to be paid what you are worth and we are proud to say we pay as much as we can. We also are able to negotiate better rates with insurance companies as a team. We also have a great streamlined system to value your time to help you make the most per hour. We want to value your time. We can have a discussion, but what we give you, we would need to give to everyone.
