November ,


To: Whom it may concern,

I am moving to the area and believe that I am an ideal candidate for counseling intern and/or managerial positions you may have available to work with individuals that suffer from emotional, social, and behavioral disabilities. For the past years, I have worked for Vesta, Inc., a +year old non-profit mental health agency located in Lanham Maryland, which serves adults and adolescents that suffer from severe and persistent mental illness. I currently serve in the capacity of a director, but I am also a Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor, in MD and now an LPC Intern in the state of Texas with direct experience in both counseling as well as caseload management.

My experience as a mentor and case manager, along with my clinical training have helped me to obtain the necessary skills required to work with individuals suffering from an array of disabilities. As Property Manager, I have learned the importance of sound management, having to seek grant funding, acquire, rehab, and care for the properties used by the agency. As a director, I have gained the knowledge that is essential in bridging the gap between service delivery and business operations.

Aside from individual counseling and mentoring, responsibilities as a counselor also included accountability to the Public Mental Health Authority that approved the services we offer. As the Property Manager, I would have to balance the primary function of property related cost and maintenance, along with the overarching compliance issues related to state, county, and local ordinances. One of my functions as the Director of Support Services is the oversight of training and compliance for the entire agency. An important aspect of this position is the utilization of data to identify and ensure quality service delivery as well as efficient management of staff time and resources.

If you agree, I am available to interview between now and when I return to Texas. If you have any specific questions regarding my work experience, please feel free to contact me at -- or by e-mail at jonk@gmail.com. Enclosed is a copy of my resume for your convenience.

I thank you for your time and consideration.


Very sincerely,


Jonathan Kearney
