Job Description:

Archways Centre for CBT is currently seeking a psychologist or psychological associate to join our team to work in our First Responder Program. Based in London (Ontario), we provide evidence-based cognitive and behavioural therapies for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other conditions related to trauma. We work with both uniformed and non-uniformed responders using a trauma-informed model to help them build resilience, cope with stressors, and foster post-traumatic growth. While a posttraumatic stress injury may be inevitable for some first responders, PTSD may be preventable. Our program is geared towards prevention and treatment of traumatic stress reactions, and includes the following services:

  • Clinical assessment and diagnosis
  • Individual therapy intervention
  • Prevention skills (6-week group)
  • Baseline assessments for new recruits
  • Community crisis response


Archways provides psychological services in-person (London, Ontario) and via virtual therapy (across Ontario) using a secure and confidential video-based platform. Successful applicants have the option of working remotely from home, but also the ability to provide in-person sessions in London. Successful applicants have full administrative support for billing, and communication with third party payors (e.g. WSIB, VAC).


Benefits of providing services at Archways include:


  • Collegial work environment
  • Flexibility in scheduling and vacation planning
  • Monthly first responder consultation group
  • Referral to and consultation with our in-house Psychiatrist
  • Full-time administrative support
  • Group therapy/workshop room
  • Complimentary membership to CACBT
  • Access to Archways Education Fund (up to $1,500 per year)
  • Reimbursement for first year of liability insurance (for new graduates)
  • Complimentary supervision for College of Psychologists of Ontario (CPO) requirements
  • Highly competitive remuneration


Applicants must be registered or eligible to register with the College of Psychologists of Ontario. Sufficient training in evidence-based practices (e.g. CBT, MBCT, ACT, DBT) is necessary. As applicable, supervision is provided by Gita Canaran, M.A., C.Psych.


This is a sub-contract position (i.e. not salaried), with the expectation that the successful candidate provides 10-15 clinical hours per week. To express your interest, please get in touch below.
