Recruiting an Early-Career Psychologist

Private Practice Opportunity to Provide CBT and Conduct Research

I am seeking an early-career clinical psychologist to work with me in my private practice in Oakland, California on the mission of building a private practice in which we conduct research. This is a unique opportunity to integrate research and clinical work in a well-regarded private practice located in Oakland, across the bay from San Francisco. I am seeking a colleague who has:

  • Completed the work for a Ph.D. or Psy.D. degree in clinical psychology;
  • Commitment to the mission of building an infrastructure that supports a unique approach to clinical work that integrates data collection and research into routine practice. Elements of the infrastructure include an online progress note that collects data for a study of skills use in CBT, and progress monitoring at every session;
  • Skills and interest in participating in research that we conduct in our clinical practice setting. Research participation might include providing data for studies led by others, or it might involve initiating and conducting research, presenting it at conferences, and writing it up for publication;
  • Excellent skills and training in providing cognitive behavior therapy to adults who seek treatment for mood and anxiety disorders;
  • Interest in learning or strengthening skills of using an individualized case formulation driven approach to CBT.

I am offering the opportunity to build a private practice as part of the Oakland Cognitive Behavior Therapy Center. The Center is located in the Rockridge neighborhood of Oakland, in an upscale professional space located in a very desirable neighborhood with easy accessibility to public transportation, restaurants, and shops. I have an excellent patient flow and can help you build a thriving private practice in a stimulating and rewarding workplace in which we are building something unique and exciting.

To apply, send a statement of your career interests, your CV, one or two research publications, an anonymized summary of a case you have treated, and a description of your research interests to me via e-mail at
