Clinicians provide services at the program site and in the community, including schools, and family homes. In addition to supporting behavioral health symptom management and reduction, Clinicians collaborate with children/youth and their family treatment teams (including caregivers, friends, or community members) to identify and work toward overall wellness goals, such as increasing adaptive coping skills, expanding their support network, accessing community resources, increasing independent skills, and pursuing employment and educational opportunities. As needed, the Clinician will also serve as the Primary Service Coordinator (PSC) who guides and oversee all aspects of treatment.

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. Seneca offers a 403b Retirement Plan, and our fully-paid Employee Assistance Program provides mental health support as well as work and life services. You will accrue 5 weeks of paid time off every year.

Seneca’s agency-wide Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Advisory Board, Employee Resource Groups, and Language Practice Groups help our employees provide culturally and linguistically relevant services to the families we serve.  Our bilingual Spanish/English employees receive an additional 10% salary increase upon passing a language proficiency exam.
