You may be able to secure a position as a mental health tech at a hospital.

Try “mental health technician”, “Mental health aide”, “counselor”. Then weed through the results which allow bachelor’s level applicants.

Best of luck to you,

p.s. The bottom line truth is that you aren’t going to be able to practice independently (or do much of anything substantial in the field) unless you continue on to receive your Master’s or Ph.D. There are some positions available, but frankly, they are just “grunt work” (e.g., doing bed checks at a psych hospital or doing paperwork in a state agency).
