Youth Villages MST counselor is stressful, though you are supported by management and a lot of quality training in MST. You learn to build community relationships, and collaborate with others. The job hours are unpredictable and if a family cancels it can throw off your whole day. In doing in home therapy, you are in some less than ideal situations and the wear and tear on your car is significant. They start with a low pay, then you get a raise every year for a couple years. I left after the first year. Supervisors were lovely to work with and very willing to work with me to help me learn. They provide a lot of supervision and guidance, which was very helpful. This company does good work in the community and is leader in providing MST.
supportive management, great starting job.
