Work With Us
Positions open at TCP:
Therapy Center of Philadelphia (TCP) is a mental health non-profit whose mission is to provide affordable affirming psychotherapy to women and transgender communities that is trans-affirming and racially equitable. We offer all our services on a sliding scale and have 25 dedicated clinicians who work with over 350 low-income clients a year. This includes individual, couples, and group work as well as trauma-informed yoga, a program for prospective LGBT parents, and music therapy. We have been in existence since 1972 and work from an inter-sectional lens that attends to aspects of social location and oppression as integral to the therapy relationship and work.
TCP seeks a psychotherapist to join our dynamic staff. TCP strives for racial and gender equity and affirmation and seeks someone experienced in practicing through this lens. The successful applicant will work among clinicians with a wide range of expertise and backgrounds including using Self as Therapist frameworks, psychodynamic/psychoanalytic theory, gestalt therapy, EMDR/trauma work, mindfulness and somatic work, and marriage and family therapy approaches.
Requirements include (please read carefully):
- at least a master’s degree in psychology, social work, counseling, marriage and family therapy, or related fields
- around TWO years of post-masters clinical experience
- experience and commitment to attending to how social location (i.e. race, class, gender identity, sexual orientation, etc) operate within the clinical frame and relationship
- experience working with transgender and gender non-conforming/non-binary communities
- at least 10 hours of client contact per week or 15 hours if you need to obtain hours for clinical licensure
- one evening or a Saturday a week (this may be flexible depending on space)

“Working at TCP I have been able to grow and find my voice as a therapist. It is so important to have community support in a field that can be isolating at times, and I have found this at TCP through excellent group supervision and programming for staff members. The feminist nature of the organization also makes TCP a workplace where I actually feel that my voice is heard, which is something quite unique.”
“I love working at TCP because the staff is full of therapists who are curious, open, and willing to grow with their clients.”
“I love working for TCP because I have the freedom and support to practice from my unique perspective and be my authentic self as a clinician, while maintaining connection to an amazing group of dynamic feminist therapists.”
