Employment Opportunities

Clinical Employment . . .

The Central DuPage Pastoral Counseling Center considers the integration of theology with the practice of behavioral science to be fundamental to our mission.  As pastoral counselors, our staff are trained in both fields.  This dual perspective allows us to uniquely serve church congregations and parishes in our community.  The churches affiliated with CDPCC trust our clinical expertise while also valuing the Center as a professional and theologically sensitive place to refer.  In addition, our clients can heal and grow in an atmosphere that respects their faith tradition should they wish to bring that dimension into the process.

We invite those interested in joining our clinical practice to apply.
