New Hire Mentorship
During the application process, we assess your attitude, personality, and character against our values as a company. As for your therapy skills, developing those is Westside’s job once you begin employment. This is where our Mentorship Program kicks in.
Components of Our Mentorship Program
1. Become Member of Supportive Therapy Team
As a new therapist at Westside, you will be part of a therapy team with supportive teammates and a knowledgeable Therapy Lead. The Therapy Lead can answer day-to-day questions, review client cases at team meetings, perform ongoing 1-on-1 meetings for support, and conduct performance reviews to provide feedback.
2. Weekly Meetings With Therapy Team
Once hired, you become part of a therapy team that is specific to your discipline and office. Your therapy team hosts a weekly meeting where specific challenges with kids, material requests, etc. are discussed in a small group setting.
3. Therapy Director Observations
For more challenging kids that require higher level support, new hires can request observations directly from our Therapy Directors. Our Directors are the most seasoned therapists with decades of experience. Their job is to make sure Westside therapists become the best that they can be through observing and coaching.
4. Clinic Supervisor Support
Your office’s Clinic Supervisor will work to build up your caseload at a comfortable pace. Their primary job is to make sure that the therapists in their office are supported – both clinically and operationally.
