Cognitive Therapy for Women Psychological Services (CTWPS) invites applications for an 18 month, 32 hour per week postdoctoral fellowship starting September 10, 2018.

CTWPS is a thriving full-fee private practice in Manhattan dedicated to providing high quality CBT to an adult female clientele.  At CTWPS, we treat a range of mood disorders and behavioral issues, and our treatment subspecialty includes the treatment of reproductive-related mood disorders. Please see for more information about our group.

Tanya Bannister, Ph.D. is the founder and Director of CTWPS, and a seasoned cognitive-behavioral therapist with over 15 years of experience in successful private practice.  Her mission is to expand and develop services at CTWPS to best serve her clientele, while also mentoring a small group of psychologists in ethical, successful business practices.

This position is ideal for an applicant interested in thriving within a private practice setting, and enhancing her cognitive-behavioral skills with an adult female clientele.  We provide excellent clinical training in individual and group supervision, monthly case conference, as well as supportive mentorship in the business of private practice.    Importantly, we are able to provide a steady stream of referrals for our Postdoctoral Fellow and it is not a requirement that our Fellow generate her own referrals while she is here at CTWPS. We will, however, specifically train our Fellow to cultivate her own referral base as part of the training here.  

Requirements:    A completed Ph.D. or Psy.D. in Counseling or Clinical Psychology from an APA-accredited program, and completion of a predoctoral internship meeting APPIC standards is required by August 31, 2018.   The Fellow will have a NYS permit to practice as a psychologist prior to her start date, and this fellowship provides the necessary supervised postdoctoral hours for NYS licensure as a psychologist.

Applicants must be committed to working exclusively with an adult female clientele using a CBT orientation, and must demonstrate some prior training in CBT or REBT  (though they need not be expert in CBT).   

Preferences:  Preference given to candidates who have shown a commitment to women’s mental health issues.  

Salary/Benefits:  $42K.   Vacation, and SEP-IRA contributions as well.  This position does not include insurance.

Applicant Instructions:  

Please send a cover letter indicating your interest in this position and experience with CBT, a c.v., and 3 reference letters addressing your clinical skills to Dr. Tanya Bannister, Director, Cognitive Therapy for Women Psychological Services by email directly to   No phone calls please.
