  • Full Time

The Counseling Center is a critical component of Student Success at the University of South Florida, located in beautiful Tampa Bay on Florida's spectacular west coast.

The Counseling Center strives to support the mental health and well-being of the 44,000 enrolled graduate and undergraduate students at the USF Tampa campus.  Through the provision of high-quality clinical services and evidenced-based practice, innovative outreach, consultation, and education, the Counseling Center is recognized and valued for its contribution to the success of an exceptionally diverse student body.  The Counseling Center, with a dedicated, energetic, and motivated team of multidisciplinary professionals including licensed psychologists, licensed mental health counselors, licensed clinical social workers, licensed marriage and family therapists, and administrative support personnel is accredited by IACS and has an APA-accredited doctoral internship and APPIC affiliated post-doctoral fellowships.

The Counseling Center is committed to a team approach to client care across all staff.  With a thriving and growing group therapy program, interdisciplinary training programs, and ongoing consultation opportunities, the Counseling Center is seeking psychologists with a commitment to excellence, a strong multicultural orientation, and who would enhance the diversity and resources of our staff.

Psychologists directly serve the USF community through the ethical practice of culturally responsive, theoretically grounded, and evidenced-based individual and group therapies, crisis intervention, and mental health consultation and prevention activities.  Additionally, psychologists have the opportunity to be highly involved in providing training and supervision for the Center's training programs.  They may serve as coordinators of specific program areas and establish designated liaisons with strategic campus partners that are consistent with their training and expertise.  Psychologists participate in the development of Center policy and programs and represent the Center to the USF community and at local, state, and national professional forums.  Considered essential staff, these positions are responsive to the mental health needs of students during and following critical events such as severe weather incidents or campus emergencies.  

Psychologists participate in the training and supervision of post-doctoral fellows, doctoral interns, graduate student clinicians from doctoral or master's degree granting academic programs, and assist with program evaluation and support.

All clinical professionals are expected to be knowledgeable of multicultural approaches to mental health treatment, and skilled in treating common presenting concerns of college-age students including anxiety, depression, substance misuse, eating disorders, and interpersonal trauma, with evidenced-based interventions.
