Cumberland Academy of GA is looking to hire a new Director of Counseling. The person needs to be a licensed practitioner and a certified supervisor in the state of GA. It would be most helpful if this person had experience with and a love for children and teens with special needs. The role is quite demanding - overseeing all counseling services, providing supervision and guidance to the counseling team, acquiring interns, and of course, helping the students, teachers and parents at the school.

There is a great deal of room to explore different aspects of helping within the school setting - with an outdoor classroom, full kitchen, staged dorm room and a focus on life skills - this could be a wonderful opportunity for the right person.

t is absolutely a full time job. It is NOT a traditional school counseling role. It is much more child, teen and family counseling that happens to be within a school. Please let me know if you have any ideas who might enjoy this role.
