Student Assistant Counselor

  • My name is Dorene Zacher and I am the Student Assistance Coordinator for the New Milford School District.  Over the past 13 years I have helped adolescents and their families address their maladaptive patterns and behaviors regarding chemical addiction and mental health issues.

    My vast clinical experience allows me the opportunity to work with adolescents address the issues which are hindering the adolescent’s academics, physical, mental and social aspects of their lives. 

      I have successfully provided preventative educational groups and individual counseling sessions on problems focused strategies to address their internal or external stressors.

    Students or their families who seek therapeutic guidance through the Student Assistance Program will receive confidential support, guidance and referrals.  If you would like to receive additional information or schedule a conference please contact me directly at 201-261-0172 Ext. 2013, New Milford High School, and  201-265-8661 Ext. 3013, David E. Owens Middle School on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
