Career Opportunities for Clinical Therapists



  • Provide counseling services for clients with a variety of clinical presentations

  • FT or PT contractor and W2 positions available 

  • Downers Grove or New Lenox location

  • Opportunities for remote and/or hybrid work via teletherapy if desired 




  • Alder Grove Counseling was founded in 2014 in Downers Grove and expanded by adding an office in New Lenox in 2021. We specialize in working with children and families but our services are available for clients of all ages (early childhood through adulthood).

  • Our practice is big enough that you can simply focus on providing excellent therapy while we take care of the rest. We are recognized and respected in the community and therefore able to provide you with a steady stream of referrals from local schools, physicians, and other professionals. We also have well established systems for scheduling and billing in place for you. 

  • At the same time, our practice is small enough that you will be treated with the care you deserve. This includes flexibility in scheduling, the freedom to build a caseload that best fits your clinical strengths, and personalized consultation on complex cases. We will work with you to make the position your own by incorporating your unique interests and your need for work/life balance. 

  • Kindness is our culture. Our leadership team is inspired by Brene Brown and Mister Rogers. 




  • Do you have a current Illinois license in good standing (LPC, LCPC, LSW, LCSW, or clinical psychologist?)

  • Are you experienced and passionate about at least one of these specialty areas: children/adolescents, couples, families, DBT, ACT, CBT, trauma-informed, EMDR, Gottman Method, art therapy, play therapy? Anything else exciting you’d like to add to our therapeutic repertoire?

  • Are you able to work independently most of the time but not afraid to ask for help when you need it?

  • Do you have some evening and/or weekend availability?

  • Are you decidedly anti-racist?

  • Do you support and affirm the LGBTQ+ community?

  • Do you show sincerity, kindness, and empathy not only in session but also with your coworkers, neighbors, servers at restaurants, and random strangers at the grocery store?



  • If you answered yes to the questions above, you might just be who we are looking for!  

  • LGBTQ+, BIPOC, and all diverse backgrounds including ages, religions, etc. are encouraged to apply.
