Clinical Psychology Solutions (CPS) is currently accepting applications for (3) Therapist Positions in a private practice setting specializing in working with teens. Therapists will receive training (and supervision, if needed) in diagnosing and treating anxiety and mood disorders in teens, and working with teens to cope with academic stressors, ADHD/executive functioning difficulties, sleep problems, coping with transitions, gender identity, sexual orientation, and much more. Therapists will also have access to working with some child (ages 7 and up), pre-teen, adult and parenting cases.
These positions are open to licensed mental health professionals, and unlicensed mental health professionals seeking hours towards CA state licensure (Associate MFT/LPCC, Psychology Assistantships/Post-Doctoral Fellows).
Positions are open to:
We are committed to offering an evidence-based clinical training and a supportive mentorship program that provides unlicensed therapists with all of the tools and experience that they will need for success in independent practice or whatever setting their career takes them next. We believe that what makes an excellent clinician is not just one’s therapeutic skills, but also skills to balance work and life in a way that feels genuine and fulfilling.
Be curious. We encourage our therapists to think about the whole person and their contexts (familial, cultural, and systematic) in working with their clients. ...To be curious about what is working and what is not working and why in their clients lives. This starting point serves as a foundation for learning how to use an integrative case conceptualization in the meaningful design of a treatment plan and real-world application of treatment intervention(s).
Therapists (seeking supervision) will become fluent in working with both the science and the art of therapeutic practice. Our training is informed by a scientist-practitioner model that includes integrating scientific data into clinical work, and the art of building and sustaining a strong therapeutic alliance/working relationship with clients.
Therapists (seeking supervision) will receive training in the following therapeutic approaches: Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Exposure-Response Prevention Therapy (ERP), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT), Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Dialectical Behavior Therapy-informed approach (DBT), and psychodynamic therapy.
Over the course of their training at CPS, Therapists (seeking supervision) will learn to refine their treatment planning skill set. Therapists will integrate the use of self-report questionnaires and other methods to assess progress towards treatment goals, and they will revise/adjust treatment interventions and goals accordingly.
We believe that the fit between our practice mission and values, the clinical training and supervision that we offer and our Therapists’ current and future goals is very important.
Our practice mission is to care, connect and grow.
In turn, we are looking for Therapists who share our values and mission, and who are willing to approach therapeutic work (and/or training/supervision) with openness, curiosity, enthusiasm and courage. We work as a team with our Therapists to create an excellent year of meaningful clinical work/training, support, mentorship and fun.
