Depth Counseling seeks pre-license and licensed clinicians to provide long-term psychodynamic psychotherapy

Depth Counseling Services, P.C. is seeking pre-license and licensed counselors and social workers to provide long-term psychodynamic psychotherapy for anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship conflict and underlying personality features. We are a psychodynamic group practice — meaning we look beyond our clients’ presenting symptoms to consider the conscious and unconscious aspects of each person’s subjective experience. Whether you are a new or experienced clinician, with just a few classes or perhaps a strong background in psychodynamic work, we would love to hear from you!

Staff psychotherapist

Our staff psychotherapists are fully licensed and bring significant post-graduate psychoanalytic training. With Depth, you will enjoy a range of support services not available in solo practice, including the opportunity to supervise students and new clinicians. (Target applicant: Fully licensed clinician with significant post-graduate psychoanalytic training.)

Depth Counseling seeks pre-license and licensed clinicians to work in our new psychoanalytic clinic for psychosis and extreme states

We are also seeking applicants to staff and to help launch a new clinical project, alongside several current staff clinicians. Existing as a separate clinical project within Depth, a new center will be geared toward subjects who experience psychosis, who hear voices, or who undergo extreme states. Consequently, in addition to one-on-one psychoanalytic services, this clinic will begin to build a milieu to support the individual attendee in work with and on their unconscious and it will require the close collaboration of clinicians in a treatment team. We aim to hire clinicians who will do clinical work in individual and group settings, as well as an arts coordinator (license-eligible, with training as an art therapist) who will work one-on-one with clinic attendees to support them in the development of their artistic projects and to organize arts-based programming.

Successful applicants to this clinic will have past experience with psychotic structure in clinical settings, and they will have undertaken study, experience, and training in relation to psychoanalysis. They should be licensed or pre-licensed mental health professionals and/or members (pre-candidates, candidates, or graduates) from a psychoanalytic school. We are likely to offer one internship in coordination with the project as well.

Each member of the treatment team will be required to develop a personalized plan to pursue training, study, and formation along the lines of psychoanalysis and psychotic structure, according to their desire. Depth Counseling will facilitate a weekly case conference to help support this goal.
