Individual Counseling

Individual sessions (30 or 50 minutes) may be arranged by students who would benefit from support, help with problem-solving, a neutral and confidential space, short-term counseling, and/or crisis management. Same day counseling sessions are also available Monday through Friday from 11 am – 12 noon, and 1 – 4pm.

Consultation Meetings

All students, staff and faculty are invited to call 802-654-2234 for a consultation meeting either by phone or in-person if they are concerned about a student or colleague or to get some assistance in finding providers off-campus.

Crisis Intervention

The counseling staff provides crisis intervention services for the undergraduate, full-time student population. This service is provided in conjunction with the Student Life Office.  See the section on Crisis Services for more information.

Off-Campus Referrals

The counseling staff will offer services within our scope of practice.  For counseling needs that fall outside of that scope of practice, referrals will be made to off-campus providers. You can check out some local off-campus providers through this link to Thriving Campus: smcvt.thrivingcampus.com.

Training and Education

The counseling staff provides assistance to other offices and student groups through in-service trainings and educational workshops and presentations as they are needed and depending on counselor availability.
