Job Opening for Licensed Psychologist in DBT Program at Center for CBT – New Jersey

The Center for Cognitive Behavior Therapy, a group psychology private practice based in New Jersey and looking to expand within New York Metropolitan area (NYC), is looking to hire a clinician (licensed psychologist, post-doctoral fellow, or LCSW) to provide clinical services in our comprehensive DBT for Adolescents (DBT-A), DBT for Children (DBT-C), and/or DBT for Young Adults outpatient programs.

We are a passionate group of psychologists dedicated to providing personalized, research-supported clinical services for children, adolescents, and families with a range of social, emotional, and behavioral challenges. We also partner with schools and organizations to provide consultations, professional development workshops, and clinical services. As a young and quickly expanding practice, we are excited about cutting edge research and treatment options, as well as utilizing technology to make our work easier. We prioritize the health and happiness of our team members with a fun work environment, sound work-life balance, and great benefits.

Clinical responsibilities include providing individual DBT therapy, leading/co-leading multi-family skills group (or individual family skills for DBT-C), phone coaching, DBT parent sessions, and attending consultation team for DBT-A. To balance the caseload, there are also opportunities to provide CBT and DBT-informed treatment for other clients seen at our practice (youth and adults) consistent with the candidate’s areas of expertise, as well as to provide workshops for professionals and in the community and write clinically-relevant articles for our blog. Experience with youth and young adults with eating disorders, trauma, or substance abuse; DBT in schools (e.g., STEPS-A); and/or working with adult clients is a plus. Previous experience providing DBT-C is preferred, but not required. There are opportunities for leadership roles based on experience and/or growth within the organization.

The ideal candidate for this position is a vibrant and dynamic clinician, eager to help children, teens, and families, and committed to using evidence-based treatment techniques. The candidate is excited to work in a collaborative environment as a key member of the team, receive hands-on consultation/supervision, develop their niche within the practice, and work alongside experienced psychologists who are experts in their respective specialties. The candidate will be passionate about and skilled in doing DBT and possess a strong desire to contribute to a growing DBT Program. The candidate will receive supervision/mentorship from a Linehan-Certified DBT Clinician (if desired) and will meet with our practice director regularly to ensure that they see the cases they are passionate about and has the schedule and volume of cases that works for them.

The position includes competitive compensation as a W-2 employee, participation in our 401K program with employer match, malpractice insurance, generous vacation, flexible hours, admin support, minimal paperwork, and a genuine work-life balance. We provide a small professional development stipend to encourage our clinicians to stay current with evidence-based practices so we can best help the clients we serve. Clinical services are currently being conducted via telehealth, with the opportunity to work remotely or from office in the future.

While there is an immediate need, start date is flexible through September 2021 for the right candidate. Interested candidates should email a CV and a cover letter describing your ideal job, clinical interests, and current/previous relevant experiences. Information should be sent to Dr. Meir Flancbaum at info@CenterForCBT.org with “Job Posting” and your name in the subject. Please feel free to reach out with any questions.
