Career Opportunities


The Oakville Centre for Cognitive Therapy (OCCT) is a vibrant, well-established clinical psychology practice focusing on the provision of empirically-supported assessment and CBT treatment services to clients of all ages and with a broad range of clinical presentations.

We are always interested in speaking to bright, ambitious young psychologists or psychologists-in-training about the possibility of building an exciting and rewarding career in private practice at the OCCT.

The OCCT seeks to maintain the very highest standards of clinical care by bringing on only individuals who are registered, or eligible for registration as psychologists with the College of Psychologists of Ontario. In addition, we look for clinicians with a strong background in CBT—including training and experience with syndrome-specific protocols (e.g., CBT-I, CPT, BA, E/RP, etc.) and/or with “third wave” approaches (e.g., DBT, ACT, MBCT, IBCT, etc.).

At the OCCT, we are committed to the professional development of our associates. With a stable of seasoned clinicians available to provide mentorship and supervision, we can guide candidates through the registration process from beginning to end. In addition, clinical rounds are held on a regular basis during which we share difficult cases, discuss ethical issues and review developments in CBT-related research and practice. And of course, we encourage our associates to join CACBT and/or ABCT and support them in taking advantage of opportunities for advanced training in empirically-supported treatment modalities.

Located in the heart of beautiful Oakville, Ontario—which ranked #1 in a recent study of Canada’s best places to live*—the OCCT offers its associates excellent remuneration, flexible work hours, outstanding administrative support and an interesting and varied case load—all within a pleasant, professional office setting and in a congenial collegial environment.
