Child Psychologist at Sunlight Psychological Services
Agoura Hills, CA
About the job
About Us: Sunlight Psychological Services is a boutique private practice in the foothills of Agoura Hills, in Northwest Los Angeles County. We are a family-focused practice, devoted to the idea that emotional health begins in childhood. We specialize in therapy services for children, teens, young adults, and parents. We also offer psychological evaluations for children and teens. We value collaboration, respect, compassion, and reducing shame in parenting. Our clinicians tend to be from community mental health backgrounds, so we value evidence-based therapies and social justice. We are moving into a larger office suite in early 2023 in order to grow our team!
Our Mission: Our mission is to cultivate relational wellness for the whole family. We believe that lifelong relationship satisfaction begins with healthy parent-child relationships.
About the Position: Clinicians would be expected to see 15-20 cases per week (individual therapy, family therapy, and parent-child therapy). The following additional opportunities may be available if a clinician is interested and has the appropriate background: psychological testing, group therapy, community education/talks, or piloting a program or service that you are passionate about. The office is also equipped with PCIT equipment which may be utilized if a candidate has the appropriate training. Unlicensed candidates would enroll as Psychological Associates and work under the supervision of Dr. Bethany Vaudrey (PSY28607) and/or Dr. Gillian Binnie. All hours worked will be paid, whether at an admin rate or clinical rate. Rates depend on experience and licensure.
