Our Counseling philosophy is built on a framework which affirms the uniqueness and potential of individual students and embraces human diversity and its richness.
Our goal is to create a confidential, affirming and non-judgmental environment that acknowledges the impact of prejudice, discrimination, oppression, power and privilege. We understand that each individual's experiences are located within societal and cultural systems of power and those have particular consequences in people's lives.
We are committed to respecting individual complexities of students' identities, life experiences, and multiple contexts in which these occur.
In the case of an emergency after-hours, dial 911, call the Public Safety Emergency Line (802-443-5911), call the Counseling Service of Addison County (802-388-7641), or go to the Porter Hospital Emergency Room.
To make an appointment, call x5141 or 802-443-5141 Monday through Friday, 8:15 AM-5:00 PM. We have daily walk-in hours for urgent concerns.
