The Bilingual (Spanish and English) Intake and Assessment Clinician plays a crucial role in allowing children and families to access mental health services quickly. This position is uniquely poised to support clients in accessing all of Seneca’s San Francisco programs: therapy, wraparound, DBT, and more! This role provides early assessment, diagnosis, and documentation for children and families, determining which services are the best fit for the family’s needs. The Intake and Assessment Clinician works collaboratively with the clinicians in each program, providing an intentional, supportive transition as well as ongoing consultation to the client’s longer term clinical team. The Intake and Assessment Clinician also works with our crisis team to do urgent, unplanned assessments for families in the community. If you enjoy flexible, fast-paced clinical work, learning about a variety of presenting issues and diagnoses, and connecting youth to a variety of treatment modalities, this could be the position for you!
