Postdoctoral Fellowship in Group Private Practice
Great Life Counseling Center is offering a very unique group private practice opportunity for 2 gifted & highly motivated postdoctoral fellows! Great Life Counseling Center (GLCC) is a private counseling center based in Addison, TX, which provides a variety of psychological services and specializes in marriage/couples, faith and existential exploration, child/family issues, and individual adjustment or life transitions. Selected candidates will be offered a 12 month 1099 contract position and an opportunity to build their own private practice business with the support & guidance of the GLCC team.
GLCC Postdoctoral Fellows may be offered an opportunity to stay with GLCC long term, if there is a great mutual fit and there are core staff openings. Regardless, GLCC Postdoctoral Fellows will receive training on the business of private practice and they will be trained on how to launch their own solo practice following the completion of their postdoctoral fellowship year.
