Mission Statement

Vermont Psychological Services was established in 1972 and has served over 15,000 clients since that time. Though much has changed since the clinic's inception, two fundamental aims have remained consistent:


To train clinical psychology graduate students in providing high quality psychological services utilizing the scientist-practitioner model to assure each client receives the most effective, empirically-supported clinical interventions.


To provide high quality, evidence-based psychological services to the widest range of individuals possible, particularly those who identify as part of a historically underserved population (e.g., low-income individuals, families in conflict, new Americans/refugees, individuals struggling with addiction, and individuals identifying as LGBTQ+).
