In the past several years, it has become abundantly clear that there is a significant mental health crisis in Canada. Our community members need assistance and support in addressing the many facets of their lives that are competing against their mental well-being. At Annapolis Valley Psychological Services Inc. (AVPS Inc.), we strive each day to provide a positive and supportive therapeutic experience for our clients.

With this at the forefront of our minds, AVPS Inc. is looking for additional Psychologists (Master’s, Ph.D., or Psy.D. level from an accredited institution) to join our thriving practice. We are seeking Registered Psychologists and a Psychologist (Candidate Register) to provide not only evidence-based psychotherapy and assessments to adult clientele, but we would like to further expand our services to include children, adolescents, couples, groups, and families. We encourage Psychologists searching for part-time and/or full-time employment to apply. We seek professionals willing to be flexible with their schedules, which may include working days, evenings, and/or weekends (if preferred)

Applicants must possess training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Additional and complimentary psychotherapy approaches such as DBT, EMDR, and/or Emotion-Focused Couples Therapy, would be an asset. AVPS Inc. is also looking for Psychologists with training and experience in conducting various assessments including (but not limited to) Psychoeducational, Memory, and/or Personality Disorders, utilizing Wechsler, Woodcock-Johnson, MMPI, PAI, or MCMI. All applicants must be able to demonstrate effective case management planning and skills.

Successful candidates must be ethically-minded, client focused, caring, motivated, and keen to embrace opportunities to learn and grow in our professionally rewarding work setting.

We provide a supportive and friendly work environment with opportunities to grow as a team.

The Practice Manager is also able to coordinate the logistics of professional educational opportunities (required by NSBEP Continuing Competence Program, at the cost of each Psychologist) and networking events.
