New to Counseling?

If you are new to our services, Welcome! We offer scheduled appointments with staff counselors to provide initial support and evaluation. Prior to your first appointment, information about your needs and areas of concern will be gathered via confidential questionnaires and screening tools uploaded to your student health portal at the time of scheduling. We ask that you please complete and submit these prior to your first meeting to allow your scheduled counselor time to review and prepare for your appointment. This will help us to develop a fuller picture of your current situation and assist us in providing you with next steps and resources best suited to your needs. Options could include further individual follow-up with college counseling staff, scheduled counseling via MiddTelehealth, referral to targeted group offerings, and/or when appropriate, referral to local counselors and supports outside of the college. You may schedule an appointment by calling us at (802) 443-5141 or emailing us at counseling@middlebury.edu.

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 individual sessions, scheduled follow-ups via MiddTelehealth counseling, joining a group, referrals to third-party providers, and more.

Generally, 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.
