Counselor
This position is on a 10-month basis. Contract dates are September 1 – June 30 each year.

The Counselor provides personal, academic, career and crisis counseling to students, primarily within a one-to-one setting. The counselor engages in clinical assessment, assigns DSM diagnoses, and refers for medication or medical care as appropriate.

The Counselor will receive weekly clinical supervision from the ISHC Director (or other licensed Board-approved supervisor) as well as weekly consultation from other clinical staff members (including the psychiatric advanced practice nurse, staff psychologist, and other counseling staff).

Because the counselor may intervene with suicidal or homicidal students the counselor regularly makes decisions which have the potential to save a human life (or cost a life, putting the college at significant legal risk). The counselor will need to be clear about his/her boundaries with clients and for keeping confidentiality; and also will need to know what duties they are not yet competent to perform.

This position will work in an integrated environment wherein the ability to work closely with medical staff is required. The counselor is responsible for working in a safe manner, compliant with safety regulations, maintaining ethical guidelines and professional boundaries.

Minimum Qualifications: Master's degree in counseling, psychology, marriage and family therapy, social work, or closely related mental health field. Three years experience in counseling or mental health setting. Experience facilitating individual counseling with clients.
