We’re Hiring!

CNY Mental Health Counseling, PLLC is hiring Licensed Mental Health Counselors. 

Who We Are:

At CNY Mental Health Counseling, we value genuine connection and depth of integration for ourselves and our clients. We find importance in cultivating a community where we can all thrive and grow. We all come together, from counselors to administration, to form a team to best serve our clients and ourselves. Most importantly, we practice what we preach and utilize a growth mindset as a team, creatively collaborate with our community via outreach and grant programming, and support and challenge each other’s development.

CNY Mental Health Counseling provides the foundation and structure for you to develop the caseload you’ve always dreamed of having. This is an opportunity to work in private practice without having to handle the business and administrative aspects that typically come along with it. Dr. Melissa Carman, the doctoral-level owner and clinic director, has over 20 years of experience as a counselor and supervisor.  All administrative tasks are handled by our super-human practice manager and the administrative team. 

We offer ongoing professional and personal development integrated into our practice. We provide advanced trainings in gender affirmation care, working with individuals who identify as BIPOC or AAPI, art therapy, meditation, integrative nutrition, and many more during our “Connect, Integrate, and Thrive” biweekly meetings. We also meet biweekly for group supervision and are continuously looking for innovative ways to meet our own, our clients’, and our community’s needs.

CNY Mental Health Counseling is a rapidly growing practice with offices located in both Manlius and Fayetteville, NY.  We are a hybrid practice with the opportunity to see clients both in person and virtually. Clients in our practice come from throughout NYS with a myriad of presenting issues. We have clients ranging in age from 7 – 95 years old. We work with individuals, families, couples, and groups to best meet the needs of our clients. We believe in change through connection and strive to build authentic and genuine connections with our clients, the most important people in their lives, and other professionals.

We regularly collaborate with other providers to create a treatment team approach to therapy, and in doing so, prioritize our community collaborations.  We partner with a psychiatric nurse practitioner to provide medication management for our clients, several registered dietitians, multiple physicians (pediatricians, psychiatrists, family medicine doctors, integrative medicine doctors, and endocrinologists), school counselors, massage therapists, acupuncturists, and personal trainers.  We have formalized relationships with school districts, universities, medical practices, and non-profits to develop a community-based model of supporting mental health.
