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

At CNY Mental Health Counseling, we value genuine connection and depth of integration for ourselves and our clients, ultimately cultivating a community for all to thrive and grow. This is your opportunity to feel part of a team and work in private practice without having to deal with the business and administrative aspects.  We will provide the foundation and structure for you to develop the caseload you’ve always dreamed of having.  

CNY Mental Health Counseling is a rapidly growing practice with offices located in Manlius, NY and Fayetteville, NY.  We are a hybrid practice seeing clients both in person and virtually. 

We are hiring counselors who are passionate about authenticity and growth both for themselves and their clients.  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.  

Clients in our practice come from all throughout NYS, with a myriad of presenting issues.  We have clients as young as 7 years old and as old as 95. Advanced trainings in gender affirmation care, working with individuals who identify as BIPOC or AAPI, art therapy, meditation, integrative nutrition and many more are provided during our “Connect, Integrate, and Thrive” biweekly meetings.  We also meet biweekly for group supervision.  We are continuously looking for innovative ways to meet our own, our clients’ and community’s needs.  

We are looking for counselors who are passionate about: 

  • Delivering client-centered services without being dictated by managed care
  • Connection—with ourselves, our team, our clients, and our community
  • Doing our own work
  • Diversity, equity, and inclusion in practice, not just saying it
  • Prevention as well as treatment
  • Desire for continuing education and training
  • Holistic approaches to counseling
  • Working with individuals, couples, families, and groups

We take a “whatever is going to best help the client” approach, meaning that we often work with individuals, families, and couples (or frequently a mix of them), and we regularly collaborate with other providers to create a treatment team approach.  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 prioritize our community collaborations.  We partner with a psychiatric nurse practitioner to provide medication management for our clients (she’s in-house), several registered dieticians, 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.  

Counselors who have experience with children and adolescents, people with eating disorders, DBT, trauma, IFS, multicultural specialties, and couples/families are strongly encouraged to apply. Doctoral level counselors and those with supervisory experience are strongly encouraged to apply, even if only for part-time contract work.  

Compensation is based on experience and educational level, and our compensation rates far exceed the local averages.  Hourly rates range from $45-$75 per clinical hour for w-2 employees , with additional compensation for paperwork, administrative time, consultations, supervision, and participation at team meetings. 

By being a part of our team, you will never be taken for granted.  You will be compensated and treated well for the strengths that you bring to the team, your clients, and our community.  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.  Offices are spa-like and create a wonderful atmosphere. Due to our intimate team nature and community involvement, we require that counselors are based in Upstate, NY.
