Our office hours are Monday–Friday, 8:30am–4:30pm

To schedule a session with one of our counselors, please call (802) 443-5141 or email counseling@middlebury.edu. If you let us know the days/times you are available, we will offer you the earliest appointment available. Additionally, same-day appointments are available to be scheduled online via the student health portal. During the same-day clinic period (see below) please send times on the day you’d like to come in (i.e., Let us know on Tuesday all of your times for that day.)

 Same-day appointments and your initial advance scheduled appointments will be concise sessions (25-30 minutes). You and your therapist will work collaboratively to explore optimal session frequency and length as treatment goes on.

New to Counseling?

If you are new to our services, Welcome! During the same-day clinic period all appointments will be available the day of. These same-day periods are during the first two (2) weeks of the semester and the last three (3) weeks of the semester. After that, throughout the semester, both same-day and advance scheduled appointments will be available. When you contact us, please send availability on the day you’d like to come in. If we do not have same-day appointments available, we will ask you to contact us the next business day. Alternatively, during the middle of the semester, we will offer you the soonest available scheduled appointment if we are not able to get you in on a same-day. You may schedule an appointment by calling us at (802) 443-5141, emailing us at counseling@middlebury.edu or accessing online scheduling of same-day appointments via the student health portal.

Same Day Access

If you have seen a counselor before and are returning to our Counseling Center, Welcome Back! We have greatly expanded our Same Day availability in order to support the mental health of students in the moment they need it. What does this mean? You can call us any day we’re open and ask to meet with one of our counselors, and we hope to have options for you for that same day. Our goal is to reduce wait times for sessions. You may schedule a Same Day session by emailing your counselor directly or by calling us at (802) 443-5141.

In order to provide services to as many students as possible, we will be emphasizing our Same Day approach from arrival through week two of each semester. By limiting the number of appointments scheduled in advance, we will be able to meet the needs of many students and free up our schedules later in the semester for those who might want ongoing care.

Follow-Up Options

Many students opt to meet with us only once, but many also request additional sessions to help them reach their goals. Once you meet with one of our counselors, the two of you can decide what follow-up option is best suited for your care including continued utilization of Same Day sessions, scheduled follow-ups in advance, joining a group, referrals to third-party providers, and more.

 Same-day appointments and your initial advance scheduled appointments will be concise sessions (25-30 minutes). You and your therapist will work collaboratively to explore optimal session frequency and length as treatment goes on.
