We are Sage Integrative Health, an integrative health and wellness center with an emphasis on mental health in Berkeley, CA. We offer a range of services from both allopathic and holistic modalities including psychiatry, psychotherapy, naturopathic medicine, acupuncture, herbs, nutrition counseling, massage, and ketamine assisted therapy. 

We are looking to hire a psychiatric nurse practitioner or psychiatrist to help patients by evaluating medical and psychiatric conditions, developing and implementing treatment plans including prescription of psychotropic medications, therapy as needed, and monitoring and evaluating treatment results. Our ideal candidate has an interest and competency in integrative health with an ability to order and interpret lab tests and collaborate with a multidisciplinary team. 

Sage Integrative Health takes a trauma-focused approach to treatment and seeks practitioners who are experienced with and knowledgeable about trauma informed care. We are a team of practitioners who work collaboratively to best support the needs of our clients. We are thoughtful around communication, group dynamics and shared values. We seek to hire a clinician who is also committed to a conscious relational approach to teamwork. Sage currently offers ketamine assisted therapy and is moving towards offering other psychedelic therapies as they become legal. We are hoping to find someone who has an interest in and openness to the field of psychedelic medicine, and ideally experience with ketamine prescribing and ketamine assisted therapy. 

Our clients are generally interested in holistic treatment and invested in their care.  While most of our client population is low to moderate acuity, we are seeking a practitioner who is comfortable working with the occasional individual with severe symptoms. We use a fee for service payment model, and do not work with insurance companies directly at this time.
