Bay Area Clinical Associates, P.C. (BACA) is a physician-owned and operated organization offering evidence-based mental health services to youth and their families in the San Francisco Bay Area. BACA currently offers outpatient and intensive outpatient services in San Jose and Berkeley and is exploring other sites as well. We are looking for a part-time or full-time therapist to join our multidisciplinary team, providing routine outpatient care as well as care to patients in intensive outpatient programs.
Our mission is to set a new standard in providing evidence-based, multidisciplinary, integrated care. We provide all therapy and medication services at one convenient location, and will collaborate with schools and help with accommodations. We do see adults, but only the parents of the children we treat, as needed to improve the well-being of the child’s caretakers. Psychiatrists are team leaders and will generally work with 2-3 LMFT/LCSW in delivering care. We are looking for committed individuals dedicated to the BACA mission. BACA is a fun, friendly place to work and we go on a first name basis for patients and staff. BACA offers the opportunity for clinicians to run groups and develop innovative treatment programs. As a therapist at BACA, you are expected to provide care to patients both in the outpatient and intensive outpatient program (IOP). For the IOP and outpatient clinic, you would provide individual and family therapy, and parent training.
