ORGANIZATION

Our mission is to remove barriers and unlock potential for families with learning and behavior challenges. There are numerous families in our community suffering from educational neglect, families who, with access to proper support, would excel and thrive at school, work, and home. A disproportionate amount of the publicly funded special education support services - services designed to keep kids from falling through the cracks - are actually directed toward families of means. This is largely due to the fact that these families can afford high quality psychological testing and therapy services, and they have the resources to advocate for their children. 

The Kingsbury Wellness & Learning Group is the place where education and mental health meet, and our vision is that all families have access not just to our services, but to what those services unlock. This principle of accessibility is so crucial to our existence as a nonprofit that we have operationalized it. Our services create accessibility by being: 1) of Exceptional quality, 2) Affordable for all, and 3) Located where families need it. We support families throughout the process of identifying their children’s needs, gaining diagnostic clarity, and securing ongoing intervention with regard to learning and mental health.  

We have a broad range of therapeutic and educational expertise that allows us to serve children and adults with complex needs. Our psychologists have been serving families throughout the Mid-Atlantic region for decades, and we continue to provide assessments, therapy, and consultation of the highest quality. We are currently offering virtual therapy, and our comprehensive neuropsychological evaluations are a hybrid of virtual and in-person testing. 

POSITION

We are seeking a clinical psychologist with skills in neuropsychological assessment and psychotherapy. Ideal candidates will have a strong foundation in learning and development, and be comfortable serving a diverse group of families. The psychologist will work with both private pay clients and those in disadvantaged populations who receive our community services. These different access points naturally create a wide range of clinical needs and concerns.

The ideal candidate will add to our pool of expertise while still adopting our philosophy of clinical practice. Our approach to assessment is comprehensive; we believe that the best practice is to understand the whole person, and our evaluations are known to be thorough and accessible. Therapy is oriented around the family, and most of our cases involve frequent consultation with parents. We also communicate frequently with physicians, teachers, attorneys, and advocates to provide the best all-around care. Psychologists from diverse clinical backgrounds are invited to apply; each is expected to demonstrate ownership of his/her therapeutic orientation while also maintaining competence in a variety of psychological interventions. All Kingsbury psychologists are expected to have basic foundations in psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and family interventions.

The Kingsbury Wellness & Learning Group is a mission-driven non-profit with a small, collaborative team. Each clinician is expected to work toward the best interest of the client, the organization, and the community. As such, we are looking for a candidate who is motivated to make an impact through service and to engage in strategic discussions about the organization’s growth and development. All of us at Kingsbury are responsible for ensuring that the organization moves toward the fulfillment of its mission.
