The Psychotherapist / Brief Treatment Specialist provides culturally-competent counseling services to university students. He/she/they must work exceptionally well with students of color, LGBTQ students, international students, and other under-represented students and communities on campus; and have a sophisticated understanding of how intersectionality, privilege, and socioeconomic status relate to the mental health of a global student community.
