Avita Integrative Care LLC is offering a Post-doctoral position for a pre-license psychologist, working with a limited permit to accumulate supervised licensing hours. This position is a great opportunity to work with high-functioning, motivated, successful clientele under an expert clinical psychologist in a private practice setting.

An ideal candidatemust hold a PhD or a PsyD from an APA-accredited Clinical Psychology program or Counseling Psychology program. Such candidate must meet all of NY State's requirements for the limitedpermit. With a background in psychodynamic and/or cognitive behavioral psychotherapy, candidate would be working independently with a business-casual office environment. Candidate will have opportunities to develop skills in:

  • interviewing and evaluating patient's readiness for treatment
  • using motivational interviewing to shift patient's into a state of readiness for change,
  • work with patients to identify and modify goals for treatment
  • help patients identify the sources of inner conflicts and work towards their resolution
  • help patients learn and develop new coping abilities and new ways of relating to self and other

While most patients are white-collar, highly-functioning and motivated individuals, there is a broad range of presenting issues that range from anxiety, depression, addictions, interpersonal problems, and personality disorders. Exposure to such clients will help the candidate gain solid foundation in working with this population and develop own specialization.

Working along with other clinicians in a start-up like environment, you will have a chance to contribute to designing and developing processes and learn critical skills need for running your own private practice. We support and encourage our clinicians to grow and develop in their own unique styles of work and to find their niche. Therefore, you will have a weekly one hour face-to-face supervision with the director of the practice, and participate inbi-weekly case conferences. Along with other clinicians, you will take turns presenting cases during those group meetings to receive additional feedback and supervision.

We are tech-savvy, and this helps us minimize and shift many paperwork and administrative burdens away from our clinicians, so that critical time with their patients is maximized. This position accommodates a flexible schedule for 2, 3, or 4 days per week. You will be in charge of setting your own work schedules. Although we do not provide any health benefits to our Fee-For-Service contractors, we do reward our clinicians for their dedication and hard work with generous hourly compensation, which generally exceeds expectations.
