Job Opportunity – BGF Children’s Therapy

Please see below for a message from Nicole Cissell, Clinical Director at BGF Children’s Therapy, regarding available positions:

Hello!

I am the Clinical Director at BGF Children’s Therapy. We provide in-home and center-based behavior therapy for children diagnosed with Autism. I am reaching out because we are searching for individuals to work one on one with the children we serve during this summer and into Fall 2024. Ideal candidates are working on their Bachelor’s or Master’s in a related field and have some experience with children. We train our staff in behavior analytic principles and the skills necessary to work with children diagnosed with Autism. We have hired students from DePaul in the past and have been very happy with their work and dedication. Hourly rates range from $20-$25, depending on experience.

If you know of any students who might be interested, please provide them with my contact information. Students can email (nicole@bgftherapy.com) or call (312-806-7937).

The Migrant Experience

Dear Friends,
I’m writing today to let you know that FIRSTHAND: HOMELESS – THE MIGRANT EXPERIENCE, part of WTTW’s award-winning, multi-year initiative focusing on critical issues in Chicago, will launch on Monday, June 24.
In FIRSTHAND: HOMELESS – THE MIGRANT EXPERIENCE, WTTW explores the complicated migrant experience through the eyes of five individuals who reveal why they left their home countries, their perilous journeys across continents, and the political forces that have shaped their new lives in Chicago as they search for housing, jobs, and education.
Will you help spread the word about this project? Here is a link to an engagement kit with shareable materials, including social media graphics and suggested text, images, video, and more. When sharing on social media, please use the hashtag #FIRSTHANDwttw and the URL wttw.com/firsthand.

WHO WE ARE

HykeLyfe was started in 2018 to further the mind/body connection for my clients and holistically treat the wellness need for each individual as best as possible. We offer both hiking therapy near the property and a beautiful, cozy, nature-inspired office so whether our clients are indoors or outdoors, they can feel natural peace.

We truly value a work/life balance here at Hykelyfe. We believe that happy, stress-free counselors do their best work and in order to give that to our clients, we provide a trusting, team-oriented, relaxed environment for our colleagues to thrive. We practice under a work-smarter model and have procedures in place to assist with this.

Our clients are mainly from the surrounding area, range in age (mostly teens and above), and are often coming in for individual therapy sessions, although we do sometimes get couples/families. Most of the struggles we see are mild to moderate in severity, we accept many different insurances, and have a structured payment procedure.
