BlueSky Wellness, LLC Private Practice Training Program - LMSW, LPC-A Milford, CT · Full time

We are hiring highly professional and competent outpatient behavioral health clinicians!


BlueSky Wellness

Outpatient Behavioral Health Clinician / Psychotherapist


Located in Milford, CT with beautiful beaches and close to everything, BlueSky Wellness has an opportunity for highly professional, driven, motivated, skilled, and experienced beginning clinicians who are looking to develop their own private practice. In the Private Practice Training Program, you will develop your practice fully by learning all aspects of practice and setting it up, ALL while you work and get paid!

The first half is learning all about generalist clinical practice while the final half is refining your specialty, building your practice structure, documentation, systems, and website, contracting with Insurers, refining a caseload of clients that fits your interest and expertise, and finding space to land ... and much, much more. Let us handle the hard stuff for you and support your professional development along the way!

Throughout your time in the program, you will have the opportunity to participate in both Generalist and Speciality training (ie. EMDR, IFS, DBT, CBT, PCIT, TF-CBT, etc) sponsored by BSW to prepare you for competent independent practice. At the full completion of your program, you will receive a lump sum payment to buy your furniture and secure your very own practice home. You will also have the opportunity to receive ongoing billing support and practice supervision to support your transition, , or you may have the option to stay with the practice in a more independent arrangement.

The position is a (3) year program, however you do have the option to finish the program early based on your drive and performance. There is no early termination fee, rather you will lose the opportunity to build your practice, take the caseload with you, and forfeit the end of program bonus.

We are looking for Licensed Associate Clinicians (LMSW or LPC-A) to join a strong, cohesive, and collaborative team that provides outpatient counseling and psychotherapy within our practice with individuals, couples, families, or groups.

Come make BlueSky Wellness your new (temporary) practice home!
