The Sonoma Behavioral Health Program provides therapeutic mental health services, including individual and family counseling/therapy, case management, and crisis intervention, to youth and young adults between 0-21 years of age. Behavioral Health 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, Behavioral Health 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 Behavioral Health 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 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. Seneca’s agency-wide DEI Advisory Board, Employee Resource Groups, and Language Practice Groups help our employees provide culturally and linguistically relevant services to the families we serve.
