  • Overview

    The Bilingual (Spanish/English) Support and Enhancement Services (SES) Clinician works primarily with the juvenile probation population in the Santa Clara County by utilzing family-based case-management and mental health counseling. The clinician works with their support counselor to support youth in being dismissed from probation. Clinicians use evidenced-based practices in their clinical work and build strong relationships with probation officers to provide strength-based and outcome-oriented alternatives to address behaviors and meet youth and family needs. 


    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’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. Our fully-paid Employee Assistance Program provides mental health support as well as work and life services, and you will accrue 5 weeks of paid time off every year. 


    Seneca Family of Agencies is committed to providing traditionally marginalized communities a network of outstanding mental health, community based, and educational services.
