Dear Mr. Roberts,
I would like to apply for your Family Advocate position with Parkvale Health Center. I am a mental health professional with more than nine years of experience working with children and families.
As a Family Advocate with Kids First Counseling I act as a liaison between families and the court system as well as providing counseling to both children individually and families as a unit. I am well-versed in group counseling techniques and child development. In addition I am familiar with family law and have an in-depth knowledge of community agencies and referral networks. My approachable personality and calm demeanor lend themselves well toward gaining the trust of the families with whom I work. I have been told that I am a trusted resource. I would be happy to have the opportunity to contribute these qualities as a Family Advocate with Parkvale Health Center.
I am confident that my expertise in counseling and family dynamics would make me an asset to your team. I welcome you to contact me when it is convenient for you to further discuss my qualifications for your Family Advocate position. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
