We're Looking for a Few Good Therapists
Centennial Counseling Center is:
- A growing dynamic multidisciplinary team of 33 seasoned and well-trained mental health professionals working together in three communities, St Charles, Yorkville, & Sandwich
- A group of specialists in individual, marriage, family, and group therapy
- A warm and caring place to work while helping others
- A fun and skilled team of professionals who are fortunate enough to actually like each other.
- And because of who we are and how we do our work, we are continually growing and often need additional clinical staff.
We have gathered together around five guiding principles:
- To provide the highest quality therapeutic care possible,
- To make a long-term commitment to the communities we work in,
- To accomplish these tasks in a faith-sensitive manner,
- To enjoy ourselves and each other while
- Collaborating and mentoring each other.
Centennial is distinct in several ways from other mental health organizations:
- We see ourselves as a hybrid somewhere between a Not-for-Profit and a Private Practice. We have attempted to bring the best of both worlds to our way of doing things.
- We use our supervision times to go beyond case consultation and administrative supervision. We strive to create communities of clinicians who can know each other thoroughly enough to be honest, vulnerable, and supportive with each other.
- We organize ourselves in smaller units. We think of ourselves as a collective of 7 communities working together toward similar goals. Those 7 are our leadership team, our support staff, our Yorkville staff, our Sandwich staff, and then we have 3 groups of St Charles clinical staff.
