“The best thing about being a School-Based Mental Health Therapist at Sycamores is the opportunity to provide support to underserved populations and immigrants, especially since I have walked more than a mile in the shoes of the immigrant myself.“
“My experience at Sycamores prepared me for my future career by helping increase my confidence as a clinician. The agency provides thorough trainings around clients’ needs, diagnoses, and documentation software, and my supervisors stressed the importance of self-care, which helped me better my time management skills and be present in my sessions with clients.“
Whether you’re an experienced mental health
professional seeking a meaningful next step, or ready to
begin a new pathway helping others, Sycamores has a rewarding position for you.
