The Door is an unparalleled model for youth development, offering a comprehensive range of integrated services within a single site for nearly 10,000 New York City youth each year. Our mission is to empower young adults to reach their full potential by providing comprehensive youth development services in a diverse and caring environment. At The Door, youth can access health care and education, mental health counseling and crisis assistance, legal assistance, college preparation services, career development, housing supports, arts, sports and recreational activities, and nutritious meals – all for free and under one roof. By providing participants with our suite of integrated services, we seek to provide any motivated young person with the tools, resources, and opportunities needed to successfully transition to adulthood.
The Senior Mental Health Counselor will provide individual and group psychotherapy and case management to adolescents with significant mental health needs. The Sr. Counselor will focus on this target population within the Door community addressing co-morbid concerns that may include trauma, homelessness, substance abuse, and challenges to identity formation. The ideal candidate will possess experience in engaging clients in youth development, school, or residential treatment settings. The ideal candidate will also maintain the highest standards of cultural competency regarding race, gender identity, sexuality, culture, and class. The Door’s mission is to empower young people ages 12-21 to reach their potential by providing accessible, comprehensive youth development services – health care, counseling, education, legal services, the arts and recreation – in a diverse and supportive environment.
