Our Role

We are committed to providing the best care we can to the Middlebury College Community through counseling, advocacy, consultation, and education. Counseling visits are free of charge to students actively enrolled in a Middlebury program. Please read our Scope of Care for a more detailed description of what Middlebury College Counseling offers.

Our Commitment

Our Counseling philosophy is built on a framework which affirms the uniqueness and potential of individual students and embraces human diversity and its richness. 

As counselors, we are committed to social justice and supporting awareness and change at the individual, community, national, and international level. Our Commitment is informed by the Ethics and Professional Standards of the American Counseling Association, the Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct, and the National Association of Social Workers Code of Conduct. Click Here for more information.

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.
