Work For Us
Urban Wellness is currently looking for several amazing people.
Urban Wellness is a clinician-focused, female-led private practice in Chicago on a mission to eliminate mental health stigma by creating awareness of, appreciation for, and acceptance of mental health self-care. We strive to help members of our communities reconnect with the things that are truly important and thrive both in their own lives and in their relationships. Our team is multicultural and inclusive. Our clinicians represent a wide range of racial and ethnic groups and religions. Our diversity includes clinicians who identify as Black, Asian, Latinx, LGBTQ, 1st generation citizens, as neurodiverse and more. We make wellness a down-to-earth practice starting in-house with the team that we have built.
We have four office locations in various Chicago neighborhoods; Edison Park, Sauganash, and Old Irving Park, and a newly opened office in Forest Park.
It is important that our providers align with the mission and values of Urban Wellness. We believe in creating the best atmosphere for our clients and employees, to give back to our community, and being committed to social justice and anti-racism work. Our mission is to help members of our communities thrive, both in their own lives and in their relationships.
Our Old Irving park office is only available Friday/Saturday/Sunday.
Create Strong Relationships
Building strong, meaningful relationships is a basic need for all of us. We value building relationships within our community and helping our clients do the same. It’s also a hallmark of our business to promote strong, lasting bonds within our team and to work collaboratively both in the office and out in the community.
Part of our mission is to contribute in promoting wellness within the community through community involvement, speaking engagements, and financial contributions. It is our goal, that through regular outreach in the community, we can reach more people and provide psychoeducational services to students, teachers + administration, and businesses in the community.
We’re committed to providing the best atmosphere for our clients and our team. It’s seen in our beautiful workspace for our employees and a comforting space for our clients to offering the extra touches like coffee + tea stations, fun music, and a collaborative environment for our team and wrap around services for our clients. We promote continued education for our clinicians through quarterly trainings in evidence based practices so clients can feel safe knowing their therapist is always growing in their skill.
We promote hiring clinicians of varying backgrounds, beliefs, and specialties to better serve the diverse and unique experience of our clients. It’s also important that our office promotes the foundation of diversity, equity, and inclusivity in its culture and practice.
