We at BAPTI are a Section 501(c)(3) non-profit, public benefit corporation founded over 20 years ago. Our mission is to provide high quality training to pre-licensed psychotherapists while providing therapy services to clients in local communities including Lafayette, Moraga, Orinda, Canyon, Pleasant Hill, Concord and Walnut Creek in the San Francisco East Bay area.
BAPTI offers employment to exceptional applicants who possess a master’s degree or doctorate in Counseling Psychology or other appropriate degree from an accredited university program. Our Marriage and Family Therapist Associates (formerly Interns) and Psychological Assistants have a passion for helping the community while developing their skills as a therapist in private practice.
BAPTI utilizes a private practice model that provides training and support for pre-licensed psychotherapists and guides them in developing, marketing and managing their own practices in preparation for licensure. BAPTI also offers a school-based program that supports therapists in creating alliances with schools and allows increased training opportunities while supporting the young people in our community.
