Postdoctoral Clinician, Rise Center for OCD and Anxiety, Louisiana

Rise Center for OCD and Anxiety, is looking to hire a highly motivated full-time postdoctoral clinician to help expand our clinic for a position beginning in Fall 2023. The practice is located in the greater New Orleans area, but serves the entire state of Louisiana. As there are very few OCD providers in the state, specialty services are in high demand. Currently, services are being provided via telehealth and in-person.

Rise is an outpatient private practice that is committed to increasing accessibility of evidence-based treatment of OCD, OC spectrum disorders, and related anxiety disorders (generalized anxiety disorder, panic, phobia, social anxiety, etc) to residents of Louisiana. The ideal candidate would be interested in gaining further training and supervision in the assessment and treatment of these disorders. This candidate should also have experience with providing evidence-based therapies including Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT); however, training opportunities and supervision will be provided as needed. It is anticipated that this position would involve working with children, adolescents, and adults. Primary duties would be conducting individual and group therapy. If interested, opportunities to develop intensive programming and training programs are available.

Requirements/ Qualifications:

Doctoral degree from an APA-accredited clinical psychology program

Completed APPIC or APA internship

Strong familiarity with Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) and/or Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Knowledge of and experience with OCD, anxiety, and/or related disorders

Excellent assessment and interpersonal skills

Organized, punctual, self-sufficient, and enthusiastic about further learning

Collaborative mindset and willing to contribute skills to growth of practice

Experience with trauma informed care is preferred

Clinicians with strong training and interest in treatment of children and adolescents preferred
