Job Description:


Seneca Family of Agencies is seeking Bilingual Mental Health Therapists to serve youth in our Orange County Mental Health Clinic. Therapists are a part of a multi-disciplinary team of clinical professionals providing mental health services to children who are Orange County Medi-Cal clients. The Bilingual Mental Health Therapist collaborates with agency staff, caregivers, other professionals, and interested parties to formulate and implement comprehensive treatment plans for children receiving mental health services.

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? Apply for a Professional Development Scholarship and achieve certifications in areas such as CBT, DBT, EMDR, or Spanish for mental health practitioners. Training and growth opportunities in the agency are abundant, and Seneca is committed to helping you advance in your career!

Seneca is always looking for ways to actively empower and uplift traditionally marginalized communities. We are honored to lead a nationwide effort, Todo Por Mi Familia, a campaign to find and connect families who sought asylum in the United States to mental health services.
