Individual Counseling

comfy lobby

The MCC Student Counseling Center offers individual counseling to currently enrolled students. Individual counseling is a one-on-one meeting with a licensed mental health professional or a graduate student in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program at Tarleton State University. There is no cost to students for the counseling services.

Counselors are trained to help students with problems related to personal, social, and emotional concerns. Individual counseling focuses on short-term goals in order to facilitate students' college success and adjustment. The number of counseling sessions varies and is determined by the nature of the concern/issue and agreement between student and counselor.

We can also assist students with referrals to off-campus resources, if necessary. Students may schedule an appointment by calling 254-299-8210, emailing, or by coming to the Counseling Center located in the Wellness & Fitness building, Room 101.

The most common concerns for students seeking counseling services include but are not limited to:

  • Stress or anxiety
  • Feeling overwhelmed by school, work, family responsibilities
  • Sadness or depression
  • Difficulty in adjusting to a recent change
  • Difficulty in making decisions or unsure of the future

  • Grief
