Counseling Clinician
The Counseling Service is committed to providing the highest level of counseling/clinical care for students with adjunctive services and programming from a cross-cultural and mindfulness-based perspective. The Staff Clinician is expected to engage fully in three essential areas of service: individual and group counseling with students; outreach consultations to the college community; and crisis management that includes evening and weekend on call coverage. We are looking for individuals who have a vision of how they could contribute to the diversity of our campus community; offer a new and innovative perspective to the programming currently offered by our college counseling service; and who have demonstrated the ability to follow through with their vision.

• Applicants must be licensed with a master’s (LCSW; LCPC) or doctoral degree (Ph.D. / Psy.D.) or license eligible with the expectation of full licensure within one year.
• Excellent and timely clinical documentation.
• Ability to work well with a team of clinical professionals (including a psychiatric provider, clinical trainees, and health service providers) as well as with the College community.
• A strong capacity for self-reflection and commitment to hearing and acting upon feedback from supervisors, colleagues, and clients.
• Demonstrated understanding of the intersection of race, gender, LGBTQ orientation, disability status, and social class with mental health concerns and appropriate, informed treatment.
• Fluency in a foreign language, included an ability to provide clinical services in that language (preferable Spanish, Mandarin or Korean) is highly valued.
• A sense of humor.

Applicants must possess a minimum of two years of counseling experience, and an interest in supervising Master’s and/or Doctoral level clinical interns. Strong preference will be given to applicants with counseling experience in a college or university setting. Expertise and experience in working with substance abuse issues, disordered eating, and mindfulness-based stress management is preferred. Multicultural competence, including but not limited to experience and expertise in working with students of color, students from lower income backgrounds, first generation college students, and LGBTQ students, is a must. Additionally, expertise with race and racial trauma; group counseling; outreach programming; disordered eating; mindfulness-based therapies, psychology of men and masculinity, sports psychology, and/or short-term models of psychotherapy would augment the Counseling Center’s current areas of emphasis.

This is a full-time, academic year (10 month) position working first shift throughout the academic year in addition to weekend and on call availability. This is an exempt-level position and requires the time commitment necessary to fulfill all of the job responsibilities.
