We are seeking a Staff Mental Health Counselor/Psychologist to join our team for an ongoing full time, 9 month position (40 weeks per year, mid-August through mid-May). The Mental Health Counselor/Psychologist provides culturally responsive mental health assessment, counseling and consultation services to undergraduate, law, and graduate students, in support of student success. The Mental Health Counselor/Psychologist will have the skills and experience in therapy, consultation and outreach to provide culturally responsive care to support the health and academic success of our students.
Additionally, this position requires strong generalist clinical skills to assess and intervene with a wide range of presenting student concerns within a time-limited treatment model. The mental health counselor/staff psychologist conducts initial assessments, group and individual counseling, crisis intervention, risk assessment, consultation and referrals. The mental health counselor/psychologist will participate in the training and/or clinical supervision of practicum students or interns. If the Director and Training Director are both unavailable, there may be occasional after-hours mental health consultation on-call to support on site colleagues (e.g. campus living, campus safety). Service provision includes face-to-face and tele-mental health services to students regarding problems relating to stress, developmental issues, career, academics, interpersonal concerns, trauma and other mental health concerns.
We are committed to developing our staff to more fully reflect the diversity of our student body and the society at large. Members of historically underrepresented groups in mental health professions are strongly encouraged to apply.
