"In my direct work with children and their families, I have felt a great sense of responsibility and have met that with a rewarding sense of having helped someone get an answer they have been searching for. Also in my role as a Clinical Psychologist at Seneca, I have participated in amazing collaborative conversations with staff about cases and about previous testing that has been completed that truly informs treatment and recommendations. Despite all of that- my favorite thing about this role and this agency is it's commitment to infusing the company's values in every thing that we do, day in- and day out." - Seneca Psychologist


Our Psychologists support youth receiving services from our mental health clinics across Orange County. Our psychologists support youth ages birth up to their 21st birthday, most having trauma history. Testing occurs in person (at the clinic sites) and via telehealth, with occasional travel to schools if additional information is required. There is a lot of growth opportunity for the creation of systems as well as growing internal resources with other psychological assistants/associates.


Seneca Family of Agencies is committed to providing traditionally marginalized communities a network of outstanding mental health, community based, and educational services. We are committed to building a diverse staff and strongly encourages people of color to apply. Our programs are deeply engaged in conversations and trainings on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in order to bring equity and justice to the youth and families we serve.
