Clinical Practice Opportunities

Shepherd’s Staff Christian Counseling Center, dba Christian Counseling Centers of Utah, is seeking other motivated Christian mental health professionals interested in developing a practice consistent with our vision, mission, and values, and becoming part of our team. We are actively turning away clients for want of professional staff.

Our aim is to play to the interests, strengths, and initiative of our staff within a broader vision of providing Christian services and as such to serve as a “floor,” a foundation, support, and guide for our staff’s unique interests and endeavors rather than a “ceiling,” a limit as to what they might do. Current center support services include billing and accounts, weekly multidisciplinary team meetings, continuing education, consultation, payroll, website, retirement benefit options, etc.

Specific Practice Benefits and Support (practice infrastructure provided enabling immediate beginning of practice):

  1. Third-party payor support in terms of identification of panels “open” to new
    “providers,“ application assistance, client benefits determination, billing, and billing problems trouble-shooting.
  2. Consistent supply of referrals through Center’s reputation, from our
    established clinicians, and ongoing advertising (more referrals currently than current clinicians are able to service).
  3. Office, supplies, phone, voice mail, and fax.
  4. Policy, procedures, tools, and ongoing education and monitoring to ensure conformity to federal privacy and security laws.
  5. Regular in house consultation and staffing of difficult clinical presentations.
  6. Potential and model for new office/satellite office locations.
  7. Well established community networking and connections with church and
    community groups and professional and educational resources.
  8. Orientation and training including the practical “nuts and bolts” for successful outpatient practice.
  9. Assistance in developing grants for specific populations/needs.
  10. Regular in house continuing education.
  11. Marketing support available for practice development.
  12. Pre-license supervision (students, interns, externs, residents).

We are an evangelical Christian para church organization. We exist to introduce Christ's restoration to brokenness, be it emotional, psychological, or relational, through a team of Christian professionals. We recognize many believers are beset by difficulties that would prevent them from functioning as members of the Body of Christ with unique contributions to make. In addition we recognize many seekers and others desire services that are respectful of and sensitive to spiritual issues. We are aware that quality mental health services, rooted in biblical principles and Christian values, are at a premium. We seek to partner with pastors and church leaders to provide trustworthy resources to meet the needs of their flock and to advance God’s kingdom. We recognize we have the infrastructure in place to provide more services than we are currently providing and we are seeking the assistance of others to reach our potential. We are waiting on God for persons to fill many important roles. Could one of them be you?
