Now Hiring: OCD Specialist in Los Angeles

We are currently seeking a licensed or associate MFT or social worker for our Brentwood and Woodland Hills locations. This is a full-time position in a private practice that specializes in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for OCD and related anxiety-based conditions. All applicants must be currently licensed as an LMFT or LCSW, or registered as an associate MFT or associate social worker with the State of California Board of Behavioral Sciences.

Please note that this position is not open to licensed psychologists or psychological assistants.

This is a long-term, career position. The great majority of our staff therapists have started with us as associates and then stayed with us after getting licensed. If you are an associate looking to get your hours and then open a private practice, please do not apply.

While the OCD Center of Los Angeles is a private practice, it operates in a manner that is more like a hybrid of a private practice and an agency. This provides employees with the advantages of both formats. Some of the private practice advantages include:

  • excellent pay
  • flexible scheduling
  • high functioning clientele
  • a comfortable, extremely professional work environment
  • a superb clinical team
  • expert, specialized supervision for associates

Some of the advantages that are more reminiscent of an agency position include:

  • stable and consistent employment
  • guaranteed calendar-based pay increases twice per year
  • all clients provided to you
  • no marketing required
  • no need to ever rent an office or pay overhead of any kind
  • rapid attainment of hours towards licensure for associates

We also offer an employer-funded 401(k) plan.

Job Requirements

  • Applicants will ideally have experience and/or specific training with CBT, Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), ACT, and/or other mindfulness-based “third-wave” treatment approaches such as DBT. Job-specific training will be provided
  • Willingness to write two blog articles per year on the subject of treatment for OCD and related anxiety based conditions.
  • Team player able to work well within the culture of our program.
  • Commitment to a minimum of two years employment.

While not a requirement, the ideal candidate for this position would have personal experience with OCD or a related anxiety-based condition, and would have personal experience with being treated using CBT and/or ACT.
