We work with pre-licensed and fully licensed professionals who would like to start their own Private Practice. - LMFT / AMFT/ Marriage & Family Intern (Associate) - LCSW / ACSW/ Social Worker Intern (Associate) - LPC / APCC / PCCI/ Professional Clinical Counselor Intern (Associate)
At FCCS, we understand that we don't own clients. When you complete your hours and leave the FCCS "nest," you have every right and responsibility to take your clients with you. This is in the best interest of your clients who have developed a healing, therapeutic relationship with you.
When you are hired as a Licensed or Pre-licensed Therapist (in any of our Online Therapist, Office and Community-Based Therapist positions), you are assisted in creating your own future Private Practice.
This is unusual. Why does FCCS do this? - It just makes sense. Practitioners in the helping professions can benefit from collaboration and mutual support. - It helps our clients. It can be intimidating to reach out for professional help, and difficult to establish a trusting therapeutic relationship. We don't want to interrupt a client's progress in the name of greed. - It promotes the collective well-being of our profession. How awesome is it to receive support and celebration in reaching your goals, rather than to be seen as a threat (competition)? - We believe that each individual provider brings unique value to the field. One therapist's success does not dull the shine of another therapist's professional attributes, effectiveness or goals.
How does FCCS help Therapists start their future Private Practice? - We have the mindset that you are your own person who has every right and privilege to grow your own successful practice. - We assist you in developing and fine tuning your clinical skills to help you rock your therapeutic confidence. - We help you build your clientele ('case load') so that you have a sustainable income as you transition out independently. - We offer the safe space to explore the "scary" process of going out on your own. (You know, that whole "be in business for yourself, but not by yourself" attitude.) - We offer insight on the 'behind the scenes' (ahem) drama of insurance paneling, billing, electronic claims submission, denials and appeals. (All that 'junk' you don't get in grad school or traditional supervision settings.) - We take the overwhelming big picture of getting started and break it down into smaller chunks. - We provide training and review of effective marketing strategies to promote your image and to "sell" your therapeutic results. (You found us, didn't you?) - We provide you with all of the start up paperwork and basic know-how so you don't feel like a floundering, flopping fish out of water.
Is this Clinical Supervision? No. This is not Clinical Supervision. This is simply a benefit of working for FCCS.
If you are in need of Clinical Supervision for your hours toward full licensure, you will need to review your State licensing board's qualifications regarding supervision.
