New Position Announcement, December 1, 2022: Attune Seeks Clinicians to Join our Growing Team
Attune Philadelphia Therapy Group is seeking a licensed or license-eligible psychologist or clinical social worker to join our growing boutique psychotherapy practice. Opportunities exist for providing online therapy from the comfort of your home office; and (optionally) in-person therapy out of our primary office in Philadelphia (Rittenhouse Square) and/or secondary office in Bryn Mawr, PA. Since our start, we have steadily grown by prioritizing the development of each clinician who joins us. As an independent contractor, the clinician will have flexibility in scheduling her/his/their hours and days worked. As an out-of-network practice, all clinical hours are fee-for-service, and we offer highly competitive rates to clinicians.
There are two descriptors that best describe our practice:
(1) Relational. We use an integrative relational framework that incorporates psychodynamic and attachment principles in guiding our approach to treatment. In keeping with this relational, developmental, and experiential focus, we pay particular attention to therapeutic process, affect, and non-verbal experiencing in the treatment ‘room’ as the past intersects with the gift of the present in leading our clients towards a healthier future. See our website for more about this approach.
(2) Boutique. We’ve been using this term in our literature since our inception in 2018. It refers to our emphasis on unique practitioner specializations and competencies. Rather than be a large insurance-driven general practice that grinds out clinicians by prioritizing high volume, low fees, and minimal professional development opportunities, we focus on offering specialty services and cultivating our clinicians’ growth and well-being.
Our goal is to keep these two concepts in balance. We seek clinicians who share our approach to treatment, on the one hand; but who have unique foci (treatment areas and/or populations of interest), training, experience and specializations on the other hand.
Additional training and practice opportunities are available for clinicians interested in learning and integrating clinical hypnosis into their work.
Our ideal candidate is someone who fits these descriptors and wants to grow with our practice over time. This includes clinicians who either: (1) want to start with 5-10 hours a week of client hours and build up to a full-time caseload over a longer-term duration OR (2) already have stable part or full-time employment (e.g. counseling center, hospital, academia) and want to supplement it with additional clinical hours at a schedule of their preference. This latter category is ideal for clinicians who want to earn additional income and be part of a team without the expenses and stress of starting an independent practice. Alternatively, poor fits for the position would include local clinicians interested in supplementing and/or starting an existing independent private practice in close geographical proximity to Attune; or finding an immediate full-time position right away.
Although we are seeking a licensed or license-eligible clinician, if the fit is right, we would also consider a post-doctoral psychologist interested in starting with a practice that they can remain with post-licensure (please note that we do not currently have a formal post-doctoral training program).
We will also consider out-of-state licensed psychologists with PSYPACT credentials interested in providing virtual teletherapy services for the practice.
To apply, please send a detailed cover letter and CV to Practice Director Dr. Eric Spiegel.
