The Licensed Psychotherapist works to enhance the outreach of Counseling Services to Berea College students who have been historically underrepresented, particularly African American, Black and Hispanic students. The incumbent must be instrumental in the development of needed services for underserved populations. The Psychotherapist serves as part of a campus-wide initiative to better serve our diverse population, and will work closely with our Black Cultural Center, the Music Program, the Carter G. Woodson Center, the Office of First-Year Initiatives, the Office of Academic Services, the Campus Christian Center, and the Vice President of Diversity Initiatives. The incumbent will work with current Counseling Services staff members to continue the College’s emphasis on culturally proficient direct clinical services, consultation and outreach to Berea College students who, historically, have been less likely to access Counseling Services as a resource. The Psychotherapist will work with Counseling Services staff and campus partners to assess and address individual and systemic concerns which may pose barriers to student success and well-being. A successful incumbent will continue to expand our services to reach marginalized and under-represented students, including but not limited to students of color, those from lower socio-economic, and LGBTQ backgrounds. Like all Counseling Services clinicians, this position provides all Berea College students direct psychological services and programming in the areas of personal concerns, family of origin issues, and academic success as well as providing outreach, crisis intervention, and consultation services. A demonstrated record in cultural competency will be a primary requirement for this position.
