Psychological Associate- Health Psychology Post-Doc Opportunity in San Diego, CA

***While this ad is for a psychological associate, we are also seeking licensed psychologists. Please submit your interest if you are already licensed; pay would be negotiated based on experience level.***

Pacific Neurobehavioral Clinic, PC (PNBC) is a private practice in San Diego, CA consisting of neuropsychologists and psychologists with specialties in health, gero, and pain psychology. We take pride in providing a high level of service to our patients, utilizing empirically-based methods balanced with compassionate care. PNBC provides good work-life balance, with flexibility in hours, health benefits to full time employees, 401K retirement plan, and a collegial work environment. Our main office is located in the vibrant, walkable neighborhood of Hillcrest. The position would allow for a combination of rendering services in-office as well as telehealth.

PNBC is seeking to employ a self-motivated, detail-oriented, psychological associate to join our practice. Supervision would be provided by a board-certified neuropsychologist, as well as clinical psychologists specializing in health and pain psychology. The psychological associate (PA) would primarily gain experience working with workers’ compensation patients who may present with: chronic pain, somatic symptom disorders, PTSD, mood and anxiety disorders, and adjustment to complex medical conditions. The PA would perform therapy with these patients and would also have the opportunity to perform psychological evaluations prior to treatment.

There are additional opportunities available (depending on the interest of the PA) that include: 1) Shadow our geropsychologist at skilled nursing facilities, 2) Learn to conduct evaluations to rule out ADHD. However, the primary role for the PA would be as a therapist.

This is a terrific opportunity that can potentially lead to continued employment in this private practice environment after licensure, with competitive pay and benefits that are not typically found in private practices.
