Oshawa Psychological & Counselling Services (OPCS) is a multi-function private practice psychology clinic established in 2006. The aim is to provide a one-stop comprehensive service to children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. OPCS, with 19 offices, is the mental health wing of the Oshawa Clinic, which is the largest multi-specialty medical group practice in Canada with over 110 physicians. Oshawa Psychological & Counselling Services (OPCS), is part of a larger organization that consists of Woodbine Psychological & Counselling Services established in 2008, located in Markham, Ontario; and Oshawa Psychotherapy Training Institute established in 2009 which is the professional development and clinical training arm of the organization.
OPCS is committed to develop a practice that strives for excellence and innovation within a caring and supportive working environment. We have over 20 psychologists in our practice and their areas of clinical work include:
- Adult Clinical Psychology

- Clinical Neuropsychology
- Health Psychology

- School Psychology
- Vocational & Career Counselling

OPCS being located within a professional medical building allows for frequent collaboration with other health professionals to provide comprehensive care. Our practice is similar to an out-patient adult and children mental health clinic addressing a variety of presenting problems and complex issues.
We offer a variety of psychological services including psychological assessments, psycho-educational assessments and intervention, psychotherapy and counseling, clinical consultation, supervision and training to support practitioners in their psychotherapy and counselling practices, as well as supervision for clinicians who are pursuing specific professional credentials (e.g. registration requirements for Psychologists and Clinical Membership and Approved Supervisor Status with American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT)).
In addition, we offer clinical training in psychotherapy through the Oshawa Psychotherapy Training Institute (OPTI). OPTI offers courses in couples therapy, family therapy, dialectical behavioural therapy, and emotion-focused therapy. Our courses are taught by seasoned professionals active in clinical practice with graduate-level university teaching experience. Training students is also one of OPCS’s commitments in nurturing the next generation of psychologists. The Internship/Practicum program is an integral part of our low fee community service program.
We are seeking a psychologist with experience in DBT to assist us developing the DBT program, a psychologist with experience in eating disorders, a psychologist with experience working with adult client population, and a school/clinical child psychologist for the school/clinical program. Candidates require a Doctorate degree (Ph.D./Psy.D.) in Clinical Psychology plus registration with the College of Psychologists of Ontario and related experience. Compensation commensurate with experience.
