Counseling Clinics of La Jolla Opens With Unique Opportunity for Mental Health Professionals
LA JOLLA, Calif., Jan. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Counseling Clinics of La Jolla (CCLJ) in the Village of La Jolla, is recruiting mental health professionals to become a part of this unique consortium. CCLJ offers an unprecedented business model, the idea of Dr. Jennifer Prager, PhD., ATR, owner and Executive Director.
That model allows for full-time and part-time private practice mental health professionals to utilize space and resources there, without the hassle and expense of setting up and maintaining a private practice office. CCLJ provides members administrative support, billing and accounts receivable, records storage, even daycare for patients’ children.
The 7,000 square foot facility offers 10 treatment-appropriate therapy rooms, two Group/Family Therapy rooms and a fully equipped Expressive Therapies room. There are also 10 separate Wi-Fi access/telephoning rooms for therapists’ private phone calls and to compile patient notes. The Consortium offers its members access to their extensive Resource Library and use of their testing equipment, books and professional journals.
“Mental health professionals can spend their time doing the clinical portion of their work,” said Dr. Prager. “The Counseling Clinics model allows practitioners to focus on providing their clinical services to Southern California residents, while we provide the facilities, equipment and business end support for them to do so, without the worry of start-up costs or maintaining their own private practice.”
CCLJ offers flexible hours for therapists’ scheduling needs. Pricing is much more cost effective than rent. All of the aforementioned services are included in the membership cost.
“Counseling Clinics of La Jolla is an ideal solution for mental health professionals who are looking to enter private practice, or looking to reduce their time spent on paperwork. CCLJ is a cost-effective model for those looking to make a move into private practice but have found the start-up costs prohibitive. We provide the support services so therapists can focus on what they do best, treating their patients,” Dr. Prager said.
CCLJ is housed in what used to be the Western Behavioral Sciences Institute. Some of the top minds in the fields of psychiatry and psychology, from Carl Rogers to Abraham Maslow worked here. The Carl Rogers Library is housed here as well.
