Here's an amazing leadership position for an experienced and licensed mental health clinician. This link was thoughtfully passed on to me by a current staff member of San Francisco AIDS Foundation, in the hopes I could spread the word to quality applicants.
The Director of Clinical Operations is responsible for clinical leadership and administrative support in the overall operation of the Stonewall harm reduction counseling program. This program covers integrated substance use, mental health and HIV counseling on an outpatient basis to gay and bisexual men who use methamphetamine and/or other substances.

If you are looking for a rewarding volunteer opportunity, or if your organization wants to develop a volunteer program, The Volunteer Center can help you connect with thousands of placements across San Francisco and the Peninsula.
Are you looking for an on-going commitment or a one-time job? Do you want to show up solo or be part of a group? Whether you're interested in mentoring a student, delivering or serving meals, pet care, gardening, or writing newsletters from home, they have an endless list to match everyone’s interests.
The Volunteer Center is a staff favorite in the employment program, as many job-seekers request our assistance in connecting with placements to enhance their resumes, bolster self-efficacy and self-esteem, give back to the community, network with peers, and practice punctuality and dependability. The Center also presents opportunities for Bay Area residents to serve on the boards of directors of local nonprofit organizations, which helps develop strong leadership skills and community connections.

(About Resource Mondays: I share my favorite local community resources on my blog each week, and I invite you to respond with your own suggestions, referrals, and helpful information. Let's tap into our collective wisdom to support each other!)
Additionally, they offer a Community Health Worker Training Program, a 12-month job training for former clients and other members of the community.
I am very pleased with the support provided by my recent referral to their parenting classes (which provide on-site childcare AND free lunch). Take a look at what their services can offer, and PASS IT ON! Someone you know might benefit greatly from this program.

I love to get people talking about the wonderful resources that exist in our community! I’ll be sharing my favorites here on my blog each Monday, and I'd also like to extend the invitation for YOU to respond with your own suggestions, referrals, and helpful information. Our collective wisdom is a richer source of support than one person could ever provide.
Today, I’d like to bring attention to Hospitality House’s Community Arts Program (CAP), the only free-of-charge fine arts studio for homeless and poor artists in San Francisco.
The director of Hospitality House recently offered my program's management team a tour of their services, and I felt particularly inspired by CAP’s mission: to promote creative self-expression as an antidote to the dehumanizing forces of poverty and homelessness.
CAP offers weekly visual arts and creative writing workshops, exhibits artist projects throughout the year, and has hosted annual art auctions for the last 25 years. I'm looking forward to attending this year's silent auction and free art event co-hosted by Yammer on Thursday, October 16th.
I enjoy passing their vibrant window display each week; go check out your mid-Market neighbors! They're located at 1009 Market Street (at 6th Street). Studio hours are M/W/F 1-6pm, and T/Th 10am-3pm.
Additionally, if you are looking for a charitable way for you or your organization to contribute to the diverse mid-Market community, I would recommend supporting a well-established grassroots agency like Hospitality House. You can learn more about CAP and Hospitality House’s overall mission to address the root issues of poverty and homelessness on their website.
Please feel free to share this with anyone who might be interested, and I welcome your suggestions and requests for future topics. Thank you for reading, and welcome to Resource Mondays!
Both of these positions will train you to perform brief behavioral assessments of clients entering the welfare-to-work program. One is bachelors-level, with language skills required, and the other is masters-level (language skills optional).
These positions present superb opportunities for new clinicians to hone and sharpen their assessment skills, and are perfect for those wanting to enhance their graduate school applications with field experience. Please see the RAMS Employment page for these listings and more!
Depression: Pathways to Resilience and Recovery
A day of workshops, with lunch provided! This event is free and open to the public.
Greetings to my friends and colleagues!
I am very excited to announce that my private practice has officially opened its doors! My first day in the office will be Friday, September 26th, and I am accepting new clients now. Details about how to enroll as a client can be found at www.jessicakatzman.com.
My office is located in the ActivSpace building, near the intersection of 18th and Treat. Street parking is available, and its central location in the Mission District of San Francisco offers easy access via public transportation.
I am currently in the process of joining multiple insurance and EAP plans as an in-network provider; until then, I am accepting private payments, and can also provide monthly billing statements to submit for reimbursement. I will provide updates via my mailing list, blog, and social networks when I join provider panels.
More about me and my services:
I’m a licensed psychologist with 15 years of experience providing psychotherapy and harm reduction services for adults in San Francisco, and am pleased to share the wealth of knowledge I’ve gained during my decade in community mental health.
I offer individual psychotherapy for adults, and I greatly enjoy the challenge of working with a wide range of people and their concerns. I do, however, have some specific interests and areas of expertise:
Alcohol and Substance Use Concerns
I am trained in and practice from a harm reduction perspective, meeting people where they are at and helping them set their own goals for change.
Depression, Anxiety, and Mood Disorders
I blend cognitive-behavioral techniques and mindfulness practices with an exploration of the underlying causes of distress.
Recovery from Trauma and Loss
I prioritize creating safe spaces where survivors can access their natural resilience to promote healing.
Social Justice Conversations
I remain aware that therapy happens within a social and cultural context, and make a place for discussing issues related to oppression, intersectionality, and privilege when appropriate.
Habit Change and Goal-Setting
I use motivational interviewing techniques to help people get unstuck from the patterns that trouble them most and make desired changes in their lives.
Employment and Career Consultation
I help people recover from job loss, change careers, deal with workplace politics, apply for disability, and address creative blocks.
I provide an accepting space for discovery in which people can explore who they are, where they’re going, and who they want to be.
Anger Management and Conflict Resolution
I teach interpersonal skills and coping tools to help people communicate assertively and improve their relationships.
Everyone is welcome! I am particularly interested in inviting those who may not feel as comfortable in all treatment spaces: members of the LGBTQQIAAP communities, gender-creative folks, people wanting to talk about size acceptance, people of color and members of marginalized groups, those in non-traditional relationships, iconoclastic artists and activists, Burners and nerds, and everyone else who struggles with how to succeed on this planet without forcing themselves to fit in.
Additionally, I am able to provide clinical supervision for unlicensed mental health professionals and graduate students, and consultation for peers seeking additional assistance.
I am so pleased to move into this next phase of my career, and to be sharing this update with all of you. If you feel I might be a good fit for a prospective client, I hope you will consider referring them to me. Thank you so much for your support and assistance with this process.
You can stay in touch with me and my practice via this blog, my professional Facebook page, my LinkedIn profile, or my Twitter feed. You can also receive free articles and practice updates by subscribing to my semi-regular newsletter by clicking here. Thank you for reading my practice announcement!
Jessica Katzman, Psy.D.
I'm a psychologist with a private practice in San Francisco's Castro District. I'm interested in harm reduction, LGBTQQIAAP issues, psychedelic integration, social justice conversations, size acceptance, and any intersections of the above. I welcome your comments!
