Multisystemic Therapy Clinician

*Now offering a $2,000 sign-on bonus!*
The Multisystemic Therapy (MST) program, provides family-based mental health counseling, support, crisis intervention, and skill-building services to youth and families referred through Alameda County’s juvenile probation program. MST is an evidence-based practice aimed at reducing behaviors like substance use, school truancy/failure and parent/child relationships. MST clinicians regularly attend delinquency court and closely collaborate with probation officers, school staff and other community providers. Services will be provided almost exclusively in the community: in families’ homes, schools, etc., and believe a key factor in sustaining behavioral change is including families and caregivers in every aspect of treatment. Services are based in community locations in order to truly meet the youth and family where they are. The goal of the MST program is to maintain youth in their family’s homes and reduce further criminal justice involvement.
“My program stands out because of the amazing amount of expertise and generosity of all of my coworkers. My clients are some of the most inspiring and resilient humans, and their progress, as well as my privilege at being a small part of their lives, make it all worth it.”
