Unique Opportunity for an EAP Counselor

Capital Counseling has an immediate opening for the right counselor to fill a unique position at our agency. The ideal candidate will have prior EAP counseling experience and training experience, will have a Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling, Social Work, Marriage and Family Counseling or a related field, and will be comfortable with various administrative and personnel management responsibilities.

This is a full time position Monday through Friday with some evening availability needed along with possible weekend availability. Currently the agency is operating in a hybrid model. This position will require 3 days in person at one of our capital region offices and 2 days remote. This position includes work in our Albany office and Saratoga office.

If you are ready for an exciting new opportunity, and wish to apply your experience and creativity in a growing organization that is focused on being the best, you should contact us.

Key points:

  • Masters degree is required but licensure is not so this is a great oppurtunity to get in your clinical hours towards licensure!
  • In person work is required so you must be located in the Capital Region or willing to relocate.

Position Summary

The right candidate will provide clinical services in our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) across a rich and dynamic clinical environment that combines direct client counseling, web and tele-counseling, group support, mental health training and awareness, and customer organization engagement.

Responsibilities include individual, family, child and group therapy. The capacity to complete therapeutic assessments; develop, update and review treatment plans, and implement therapeutic treatment modalities in a culturally competent and compassionate manner is vital. Knowledge of EAP services and supervisory skills is essential. The preferred candidate will be competent in management consultation and professional training in a business environment. Familiarity with regional behavioral healthcare providers is essential. Experience working with groups, providing support following traumatic events, and working in multiple office and customer locations is required.

Capital EAP is temporarily operating in a hybrid-work setting. Due to this, the ideal candidate will have access to a reliable internet connection, a private and confidential work-setting while working remotely, and the ability to learn and work with various online platforms such as Zoom, Doxy, Slack, EHR systems and Microsoft products.
