Milwaukee Jewish Federation Milwaukee WI

The Outpatient Mental Health Clinic of Jewish Family Services is currently recruiting qualified psychologists to apply for the clinic’s Staff Psychologist/Clinical Supervisor position.  JFS’ Clinic celebrated 40 years of operation last year and has carried on a legacy of employing thoughtful, humanitarian professionals who engage in client-centered and relationally-focused psychotherapies for individuals and families.  The clinic has a rich culture of professional development, many of our therapists hold professional memberships (NASW, APA, ISSTD, EMDRIA, ACA) and have received post-licensure training in additional therapeutic modalities including EMDR, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, IFS, TF-CBT, Comprehensive Resource Model, Brainspotting and other trauma-specific certifications, to name a few.  Additionally, the clinic partners with area universities’ departments of psychology and social work as a clinical placement site for Masters and PhD clinical interns.  Our clinic staff currently consist of 7 LCSWs and 4 LPC’s, ranging in tenure from 4-30 years post-licensure; 1 consulting MD psychiatrist who provides prescriber services; 2 post-Master’s qualified treatment trainees completing 3000 hours towards licensure; 2 Master’s level clinical interns; and 4 operational staff positions that support clinical functions.

Our ideal applicants are mid-career professionals with a PhD or PsyD license who are interested in part-time employment at a community-based psychotherapy practice with values rooted in service to the community, collegial support, and development of the profession of psychotherapy. Additionally, preference will be given to psychologists with a depth of experience in their own psychotherapy practice, especially with individuals and families who have experienced extreme forms of loss, trauma, or other types of emotional, physical and existential suffering.  This is important as this position will supervise psychotherapists (licensed and in-training) who are providing services to people who have endured such suffering.
