Immediate Job Opening for DBT/CBT Licensed Psychologist or Post Doc at Center for CBT

Job Opening for CBT/DBT Licensed Psychologist (or Post Doc or Permit Holder) at Center for CBT

The Center for Cognitive Behavior Therapy, a thriving group private practice based in New Jersey and expanding into New York City, is excited to announce an immediate opening for a licensed psychologist (or post-doctoral fellow) who specializes in providing outpatient CBT and DBT to children (a plus), adolescents, young adults, and/or families.

We are a passionate group of clinicians 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. 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 will be split between DBT and CBT cases. The candidate will see cases in our comprehensive DBT Program for Adolescents (DBT-A), and can additionally see cases within our DBT programs for young adults (DBT-YA) and for children and families (DBT-CF), depending on expertise and interest. Comprehensive DBT responsibilities include providing individual therapy, leading/co-leading multi-family skills group (or individual family skills), phone coaching, parent sessions, and attending consultation team. The number of comprehensive DBT cases that the clinician will carry is flexible and can change over time based on clinician preference and limits.

CBT cases include youth (and some adults) with anxiety and OCD, ADHD and disruptive behavior, Tourette syndrome and tics, trichotillomania, depression, feeding disorders, and autism. These cases are assigned based on the candidate’s experience and areas of passion. There are also opportunities, if desired, to present workshops for professionals and in the community, as well as to write clinically-relevant articles for our blog. There are possible opportunities for leadership roles based on experience and/or growth within the organization.


Ideal candidate

The ideal candidate for this position is a vibrant and dynamic clinician; eager to help children, teens, young adults, 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 and provide consultation/supervision, develop their niche within the practice, and work alongside experienced clinicians who are experts in their respective specialties. The candidate will be passionate about and skilled in doing CBT and DBT and possess a strong desire to contribute to a growing DBT Program and a cohesive team.

Experience in the following areas is a plus, but not required: youth and young adults with eating disorders, trauma, or substance abuse; DBT in schools (e.g., STEPS-A); and/or working with adult clients.



The candidate 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. They will also receive supervision from a Linehan-Certified DBT clinician and mentorship towards certification, as needed and desired.

The position can be part time or full time and includes competitive compensation as a W-2 employee, participation in our 401K program with employer match, malpractice insurance, unlimited vacation, flexible hours (we typically do a 4-day work week), full admin support, minimal paperwork, and genuine support in helping you maintain a healthy work-life balance. We provide a professional development stipend to encourage our clinicians to stay current with evidence-based practices so we can best help the clients we serve. Option to provide clinical services remotely, from the office, or hybrid.
