The Bilingual (Spanish/English) Community-Based Outpatient Therapist at Seneca’s Therapeutic Outpatient Program is responsible for the ongoing provision of culturally responsive mental health services to youth and their families, including individual and family therapy and child and family team meetings. It is their responsibility to strive to provide the best possible individualized treatment for the youth and families. Services will be provided almost exclusively in the community: in the families’ homes, group homes/STRTPs, foster homes, schools, etc. They are also responsible for documentation to comply with agency-wide requirements, Continuum of Care Reform, as well as the requirements of the counties with whom we work.
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 though 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. Our fully-paid Employee Assistance Program provides mental health support as well as work and life services, and you will accrue 5 weeks of paid time off every year.
