Therapist for Transitional Age Youth Program
$2,000 sign-on bonus for new Seneca employees in this position!
The Transitional Age Youth Therapist provides family-based mental health counseling, therapy, crisis intervention, family finding, and case management services to transitional age youth and families. Therapists are members of a treatment team and provide services at the program site and in the community, including, but not limited to hospitals, schools, and family homes.
Services build on the values and strengths of each young adult and family, and are tailored to meet their unique and changing needs. As our approach to services is youth driven, each client identifies the focus of their treatment, as well as the people they want on their treatment team, which may include supportive family, friends, or community members. Participation is voluntary, and youth are able to decide when they are ready for mental health services to end.
Seneca supports clinicians towards licensure and beyond. We provide individual and group supervision, regular clinical case conferences, and licensure and renewal courses led by field experts. Expenses such as outside trainings or licensure fees can be mitigated through your clinical training stipend, and you will receive a $4000 salary increase upon getting licensed. Looking to expand your clinical skills even more? Seneca’s Professional Development Scholarship awards employees with tuition reimbursement of up to $2500 each year for certifications in areas such as CBT, DBT, EMDR, or Spanish for mental health practitioners. Training and promotional opportunities in the agency are abundant, and Seneca is committed to helping you advance in your career!
Seneca’s comprehensive employee benefits package ensures that you are just as supported outside of work. We provide 75% of your medical premium, and full coverage for dental, vision, chiropractic, acupuncture, long term disability, and life insurance. We also cover 50% of premiums for dependents. Seneca offers a 403b Retirement Plan, and our fully-paid Employee Assistance Program provides mental health support as well as work and life services. You will accrue 5 weeks of paid time off every year.
