Join the team at TW Ponessa & Associates Counseling Services, Inc. to provide mental health services to children and adolescents in the home, school and community settings. The Therapeutic Staff Support (TSS) employee gives one-on-one support to emotionally disturbed children or adolescents.

TSS services are to be used for children/adolescents who have been diagnosed with serious emotional disturbance, for whom it is determined that use of professional services alone (e.g., outpatient psychotherapy, MT, or family based rehabilitation services) is insufficient to meet established needs. TSS services are to be used when these other resources and services are documented within the psychological or psychiatric evaluation as insufficient or inadequate to meet the needs of the child/adolescent and family, or as a step down from a more restrictive setting to reinforce the effect of treatment and help establish the family/community support the child/adolescent needs. The child/adolescent presents social, emotional or behavioral issues that result in impairment that substantially interferes with or limits the child/adolescent’s role or functioning in family, school, or community activities. The services may be provided in a variety of settings, including a group home, and non-secure juvenile justice placement.
