Genest MacGillivray Psychologists

An opportunity to develop your independent practice within a well-established clinic in Halifax

We are an especially collegial group of psychologists working in a highly respected practice. We work in a beautiful heritage house, complete with a private garden, in downtown Halifax. Our associates set their own hours and can control their own bookings but are also fully supported by administrative staff. Associates are normally booked four to six weeks in advance and maintain waiting lists. Ours is a supportive environment for both beginning and established practitioners, offering ongoing, informal, brief consultations, as well as regular opportunities for peer consultation with the group.

Mostly because of Covid-19, we have developed an extensive telepsychology practice, which we anticipate will remain as a substantial part of our offerings since many clients seem to prefer it. Currently, some clients are seen in person, with safety measures in place.

Anyone in our practice would be pleased to discuss our work environment and respond to questions via email or telephone, or in person. There is also an abundance of detail about us at

We are seeking a doctoral-level psychologist. We serve adolescents, adults, couples, and families, and are particularly looking for someone who has a specialty in counselling couples and is experienced in a wide range of clinical problems.

Halifax is a beautiful, walkable city; an ocean city with an extended, attractive waterfront. This forward-looking community is rapidly improving public transportation and building bike lanes. There is affordable housing downtown and in the suburbs, and the schools, both public and private, are good.
