For Teens, Adults, Couples, and Families

Now hiring! Part-Time Position for CA Licensed Mental Health Professional.

Are you a Psychotherapist in San Diego with special interests and training in Sexual Health? Do you want to work in a private practice setting without the effort or financial risks of starting your own small business?

Affirming Therapy Center (ATC) is small, growing group practice, and is seeking a part-time, licensed mental health professional to join the team. ATC treats adults (individuals and relationships), specializing in serving communities of gender, sexuality, and relationship diversity (including LGBTQ, kink, fetish, polyamory / swingers / consensual non-monogamy, and adult industry professionals). Above all, we are looking for a therapist with a desire to serve sexual-minority communities and clients with sexual health concerns in a non-judgmental, open, and affirming way.

ATC provides a furnished office in San Diego 2-5 days / week, access to the electronic record management system (including scheduling, notes, and billing), office internet, and a copy machine / printer / scanner. Employee profiles are included on the website and on various online directories. Some client referrals are expected but not guaranteed. Professional networking is suggested to help build a referral network.

This is the perfect position for someone who has a job at an agency but wants to experience working with private practice clientele, a stay-at-home parent who doesn’t have time for a full-time position but wants to keep current in therapy skills, a university professor who enjoys teaching but also wants to continue practicing psychotherapy, or someone pursuing another kind of job / industry who still has a desire work as a therapist. It is not a good fit for an entrepreneur looking to start their own private practice – if this is you, let us know and we’re happy to help you in other ways.


  • Licensed Mental Health Professional (LMFT, LCSW, LPCC, or Psychologist) via California Board of Behavioral Sciences.
  • Experience and additional training in Couple’s Therapy (Emotionally Focused Therapy externship required, attending Core Skills Training is desired).
  • Additional training in basic Sex Therapy principles and interventions.
  • Specialized knowledge, training, and passion for working with Kink / BDSM and Polyamory / Consensual Non-Monogamy.
