Calling all psychologists! Do you want to engage in meaningful work? Bring your education, empathy, skills, and training to a job where you can really make a difference? See a broad range of people with a variety of problems and difficulties? Have control over your own schedule and make your own hours? Work with secure technology and stellar admin staff from the comfort of your own home?
Come join our team at Smith Health Consulting and help us to serve the needs of the east Hamilton mountain and Six Nations of the Grand River communities in Ontario.
We are looking for psychologists who are registered with the College of Psychologists currently, or who require supervision to do so. Social Workers or Psychotherapists who wish to apply would need to be able to provide services at the level of a psychologist and work under Dr. Smith's supervision.
Smith Health Consulting has 2 office locations: our primary location on the east mountain in Hamilton, Ontario and our second office in the village of Ohsweken in the heart of the Six Nations of the Grand River reserve, 30 minutes away. The east mountain in Hamilton is is a diverse and growing community on the outskirts of Hamilton. Our office is in a prime location, accessed easily by bus or highway, with plenty of free parking. We are across the street from a gym, next door to a physician group and a pharmacy, and within walking distance of several other physician group offices, physio and rehabilitation clinics, grocery stores, and restaurants. Our second office is in Ohsweken on the Six Nations of the Grand River reserve. Six Nations is Canada's most populous reserve. It is a beautiful community with a rich heritage located outside Hamilton and Brantford. Smith Health is the only Psychology clinic operating on the reserve. Our office in Ohsweken also is in a prime location, on the main street in the village, located in the Community Living plaza, next to the Tim Horton's, again with plenty of free parking. We currently have waitlists of patients needing to be seen in both offices.
We are currently serving the needs of the Hamilton and Six Nations communities primarily by phone and video; we are reserving in-office sessions for our most urgent patients, and are following full disinfecting and distancing guidelines for these sessions.
Our biggest referral sources are Six Nations Mental Health and the Workers Safety and Insurance Board of Ontario. We also take referrals from local family physicians and self-referrals from the community, so we see a broad range of people with a variety of problems and difficulties. If you don't want to work in a specialty clinic where you see the same kinds of people and problems all day, every day, apply here. If you want to work in a rich and welcoming, professional environment with beautiful offices, current technology, and stellar admin support, apply here. If you want to make a real difference in your work and still have the freedom and flexibility to make your own hours and vacation time, apply here.
Registration or potential registration in Clinical or Rehabilitation Psychology is required to see injured workers through WSIB. Experience with indigenous populations is preferred for those who wish to work on the reserve. All qualified candidates will be considered.
Make a difference. Apply your education, skills, and training where they are really needed. If you want to join us in being part of the solution that attempts to bring some healing to injured workers, the broader community, and our indigenous brothers and sisters, apply here.
Registered psychologists and those seeking supervision are encouraged to apply.
At this time, the organization is only able to employ psychologists so applications must be limited to those already registered or planning to register with the College of Psychologists of Ontario. Social Workers or Psychotherapists who wish to apply would need to be able to provide services at the level of a psychologist and work under Dr. Smith's supervision. The College of Psychologists of Ontario has specific guidelines for this kind of supervision that would need to be followed if you wish to provide services in this way. Please ensure registration or eligibility for registration with your college to apply.
Apply by sending a CV and cover letter.
