Currently Accepting Applications

The Child Anxiety Center at the Evidence Based Treatment Centers of Seattle (EBTCS) invites applications for our post-doctoral fellowship program! The Child Anxiety Center has set the bar for providing the highest quality evidence-based treatments to children, teens and families for nearly two decades. We were the first specialty pediatric OCD treatment center in the Seattle area, we offered the first specialty anxiety and OCD IOP programs, and we remain the only clinic to offer specialty intensive treatment for school refusal. The Child Anxiety Center is comprised of a team of psychologists and child psychiatrists who collaborate closely to deliver the highest quality care.

Fellows will receive specialized training and supervision for treating OCD, the full range of anxiety disorders, and related disorders (i.e., body focused repetitive behaviors, Tourette’s, etc.) using evidence-based treatments (e.g., ERP, CBT, behavioral parent training, CBIT). They will also work closely with the team to treat children, adolescents, and their parents within our outpatient program and specialty intensive outpatient treatment programs (IOP).

Activities may also include participating in program development and administration, assisting with our client outcomes monitoring program, and participating in our practice-based research program. Trainees will work closely with our Director, Jennifer Tininenko, PhD and Co-Director, Danny O’Rourke, PhD, ABPP.

 All positions start in Fall 2023. The starting salary is $55,000/year, and once licensed, this increases to $70,000/year. Although the position requires a 2-year commitment, there is an opportunity in the second year for promotion to a training staff-level position if the fellow has demonstrated meeting program-specific competencies. This staff-level position includes 1 hour of individual supervision per week and an increase in guaranteed base pay to $110,000/year. Most fellows at EBTCS over the last 5 years have been hired into a training staff-level position at the start of their second year. Last year, including bonuses, the average annual compensation for staff before their 3rd anniversary as staff was over $130,000, with additional scheduled raises at 5th and 7th anniversaries.

 The Child Anxiety Center is part of the Evidence Based Treatment Centers of Seattle (EBTCS), a nationally recognized specialty clinic in the heart of downtown Seattle. EBTCS is home to four specialty clinics, including the DBT Center, the Anxiety Center, the Child Anxiety Center, and the Eating Disorders Center. We have a compassionate, supportive work environment that prioritizes inclusivity as well as personal and professional growth. EBTCS strongly values diversity and is committed to building and maintaining an anti-racist culture through monthly meetings, presentations, and readings.
