The Lorenz Clinic is hiring a Licensed Psychologist to provide clinical services and supervision at one of its
family-focused clinics. The position is full-time and will be housed at one of our south metro locations.
A doctoral degree in psychology is required. This position is opened until filled.

The Clinic

The Lorenz Clinic is a group private practice focused on the mental health needs of children, families,
and adults. While the majority of our services are provided under the umbrella of managed care, we
have community partnerships that allow us to service those without insurance. Located on the edge of
the Minneapolis Metropolitan area, our four locations (Victoria, Chaska, Prior Lake, and Rosemount) are
located approximately 30-35 miles south/southwest of downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul and provide
needed access to psychological services for both suburban and rural communities. In addition to its
overall clinical mission, the clinic hosts a vibrant training program.

The Position

Licensed Psychologists report to the Clinical Director. This position will include carrying a caseload of
psychotherapy clients in addition to providing intermittent administrative supervision, clinical
supervision, and didactics within the clinic’s training program. Job duties include but are not limited to:

  • Carrying patient caseload as defined by clinic
  • The provision of psychological services including conducting diagnostic assessments, treatment
    planning, psychotherapy, psychological testing, and discharge planning for patients of the clinic
  • The provision of clinical and administrative supervision
  • Assisting the Training Director in coordinating, organizing, and supervising trainees

The Training Program

A major highlight about The Lorenz Clinic is that it is a training site. Our existing training program
includes a master’s-level family therapy practicum placement, a post-master’s fellowship, and a postdoctoral
psychology fellowship. The training program hosts a vibrant invited practitioner speaker series
in addition to monthly grand rounds. Because the training program is an outgrowth of our fierce
dedication to serving the underserved, we offer significantly reduced fee services to those in financial
need. The clinic has existing relationships with area graduate programs in psychology and family
therapy, but we are not beholden to any specific graduate schools. Training rotations are typically 12
months. More information about the larger training program can be found at lorenzclinic.com/clinicaltraining
