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.
At J&L Psychology Group, 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.
The postdoctoral fellowship position at J&L Psychology Group is designed for candidates who have successfully obtained their doctoral degree in clinical or counseling psychology and are interested in accruing licensure hours in a supportive private practice setting. 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. Our team has extensive training and experience in many treatment models, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), and Psychodynamic Therapy.
The ideal candidate for the postdoctoral psychologist position is a collaborative, creative, and team-oriented individual with demonstrated interested in providing integrative and evidence-based psychotherapy. This one-year position offers the unique opportunity to adapt one’s clinical skills to the private practice setting and to join a growing, well-regarded and established group practice. Additionally, the postdoctoral psychologist will have the opportunity to develop their integrative trauma-focused therapy skills through regular supervision with J&L staff psychologists.
