Current Opening for a Psychologist
(eligible for registration in the Province of British Columbia)

To support children, adolescents, and parents
To complete psychoeducational assessments

Are you an attachment-oriented, family-centered, creative-thinking, registered psychologist who has a bit of sparkle AND a profound respect for developmental approaches to understanding children and supporting parents? If so, read on!

The Wishing Star Lapointe Developmental Clinic is one of the largest child-focused private practices providing counseling, assessment, and support services to children and their parents in the Lower Mainland. A team of more than a dozen multidisciplinary therapists work together to provide a full spectrum of developmental services to clients ranging in age from birth to young adulthood.

We are expanding our team and are seeking a Registered Psychologist available for 15-30 direct client hours weekly. Interest in working with a broad range of referral ages and issues, well-honed skills in parent support, and a theoretical framework focused on attachment and relational approaches is essential.

Why you will love us:

  • Our practice offers a collegial environment with development opportunities and regular clinical consultation with peers.
  • Our administrative staff provides full service client care and administration.
  • We have a professional online presence, a well-developed and engaging marketing program, and a large network of professional referral sources.
  • We are the destination private practice in the Lower Mainland of BC for child-related support services with a focus on relational care, compassion, and empowerment delivered via a family centered model.
  • We love our work and our team! Our clients and clinicians alike always say they can "feel it in the air"!

Requirements:

  • Must be a Registered Psychologist (PhD level), and be a member in good standing with the BC College of Psychologists (or be eligible for reciprocal registration immediately). No applications will be considered without R. Psych. status already in place or reciprocal registration eligibility.
  • Alignment with our guiding vision (www.lapointepsychology.com/about)
  • Experience working with children and families (3-5 years minimum)
  • Ability to work in a team environment and be a team player
  • Professional autonomy
  • Proficiency in a range of therapeutic approaches

Life in South Surrey:

Our clinic is located in sunny South Surrey, just blocks from White Rock, and minutes from White Rock Beach and Crescent Beach. Our community boasts some of the best schools (public and private) in the lower mainland, affordable and comfortable housing options, amazing recreational programming and community involvement opportunities, a plethora of outdoor adventure opportunities (skiing and paddle-boarding all on the same day!), wonderful restaurants and farmers markets, and a great quality of life for adults and families away from the craziness of Vancouver proper but close enough to venture into it when wanted (a 30 minute drive).

The ideal candidate would be interested in becoming a long-term member of our established practice, and excited about settling into life in or near our community. We are able to offer strategic support and guidance for families interested in relocating, including daycare scouting, school placement advice, and support regarding housing options.
