J&L Psychology Group is currently accepting applications for a full-time, one-year postdoctoral fellowship with a flexible, immediate start date (estimated that position will begin in fall of 2021). We are looking for candidates interested in working with Adults and Couples in a close-knit, collaborative therapeutic group practice. Our practice is located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and all services are currently being provided virtually due to COVID-19 crisis.
We are looking to add a full-time or part-time Psychologist who works with adults and couples to our close-knit, collaborative therapeutic team. This is a salaried position with competitive pay and an end-of-year bonus opportunity. Therapists who work at least 30 hours a week are also eligible for our benefits package.
At J&L Psychology, we are inspired by the ancient Japanese art of Kintsugi, or “golden joinery.” Kintsugi celebrates imperfections in repairing broken pottery with a bonding substance lined with gold. The result is a stronger, more durable vessel forever changed by its shimmering imperfections. Similarly, we believe emotional scars are to be illuminated rather than hidden. Human fragility and strength forge resilience, and people are never beyond repair.
We are looking to add a Child & Family Psychologist to our dynamic therapy team. This is a salaried position with competitive pay and an end-of-year bonus opportunity. Therapists who work at least 30 hours a week are also eligible for our benefits package.
J&L Psychology Group specializes in the treatment of individuals across the lifespan (children, teens, adults) who present with a diverse set of issues, including complex trauma, anxiety, depression, adjustment/ transition issues, etc. We provide individual, couples, and family-based therapies. We are passionate about developing authentic relationships with our patients and tailoring treatment plans to fit each person.

At the one-year anniversary of the COVID-19 pandemic, our inboxes and social media feeds are inundated with creative tips and tricks to improve our emotional well-being. Although there is light at the end of the tunnel, we continue to endure drastic changes to daily life.
While staying in touch through Zoom meetups or taking a relaxing bath certainly can help soothe the effects of mind-numbing work-from-home days and prolonged social isolation, sometimes these one-size-fits-all strategies simply do not do the trick.
If you find yourself anxious, depressed, or lost as we arrive at this anniversary – you are not alone. During times of prolonged uncertainty and constant change, it is remarkably human to at times feel less hopeful or excited about the future. You may find yourself asking, “What is the point of it all?”

Have you felt judged, been criticized, offered suggestions, or given unsolicited advice that you don’t need, at a time you are barely making it through the day? ... Know that you are not alone.
Don’t fall prey to the hype. Don’t read the blogs, the social media posts, the interviews, the books that make you believe you are doing it all wrong. Don’t shame scroll on social media to feel bad that you haven’t baked, crafted, or walked together today holding hands. Don’t buy into the fantasy picture of parenting during a pandemic ... It’s not real.
Emily Brackman, PhD, is quoted in an article about coping with grief during the holidays. She suggests helpful activities such as creating a new ritual that allows you to mourn, and recommends that you consider ways you can honor your loved one's memory with traditions that matter most to you. You might share a story about your loss with a friend, go through an old photo album, write a letter to someone you are missing, or ask a shared person in your life to tell you a little bit about their relationship with the person you've lost.
