Wellspring Center for Counseling is hiring full and part-time therapists and counselors!

Wellspring Center for Counseling is a faith-sensitive therapy practice that prides itself on bringing excellent and compassionate care to people in our communities. Wellspring was founded in 2017 and is expanding to become a multi-site practice. We currently have an office in Elgin and are opening our second location in Sycamore this fall. We are hiring experienced therapists to add to our growing practice.

At Wellspring, we know that for many clients, their faith is a major aspect of their lives. For clients who wish to have spiritual integration in their therapy process, we incorporate faith-based practices and therapeutic interventions so there doesn't have to be the choice between "pastoral" help and "therapeutic" help. We are the bridge connecting both incredible fields.

Who we’re looking for:

  • Counselors who are dedicated to excellence in their field, who are compassionate, professional, and committed to their own growth as well as the growth of their clients.

  • Licensed therapists who can integrate Christian counseling into their work for clients who find this valuable in their treatment.

  • Counselors that work with children utilizing play therapy and who can help families understand best practices with how to thrive in their unique family dynamics.

  • Therapists who will work with couples with various presenting issues to strengthen the marital relationship.

  • Team members who will bring their own interests to provide value to the work that we do in the community, in churches, and in collaboration with other practices.

  • Workers who will contribute to a positive work environment that is supportive, collaborative, caring, and fun.


  • Provide counseling services to individuals, couples, or families as you walk alongside them to find hope and healing in their journey. This is your main responsibility and the heart of what we do at Wellspring.

  • Complete clinical and administrative documentation in a timely manner.

  • Support the office and your co-workers through minimal office upkeep.

  • Manage a caseload of 10-30 clients, depending on part-time or full-time status.

What we provide:

  • Biweekly group consultations to assist with case consultation, intervention ideas, and support.

  • Competitive pay based on hours worked with opportunity for yearly pay increase.

  • Comfortable, furnished office spaces conducive to effective counseling.

  • A supportive team environment.

  • Training to provide a consistent approach to documentation and administrative work.

  • Support staff to manage client inquiries, schedule intakes, and provide billing services so that therapists and counselors can focus on clinical work.

  • LCPC

  • LPC

  • LCSW

  • LSW

  • LMFT


  • Psy.D
