Counseling Resources

Mental health issues are a reality for millions of people across the country. Young people are especially at risk, with half of college students reporting that they have been stressed to a point where they couldn't function during the past year.

What Happens in Counseling

We may examine one or more of the following:

  • Identify self-doubts and factors that sabotage your motivation
  • Resolve personal or relationship conflicts impeding your academic success
  • Address stress or anxiety
  • Discuss the causes creating depression, grief or trauma
  • Assess alcohol or drug abuse
  • Explore issues surrounding sexual orientation or gender identity
  • Increase mindful self-awareness and self-acceptance
  • Learn skills for handling anger, mood swings and exaggerated reactivity
  • Deal with emotional issues caused by domestic violence or sexual assault
  • Discern how to make effective and satisfying life choices

Counseling Confidentiality

These confidential counseling sessions are available with a licensed mental health professional. Conversations and counseling records are not a part of your education record and cannot be disclosed to anyone without your written consent with the following exceptions:

  • Suspected abuse or neglect of children or vulnerable adults
  • Situations involving potential suicide or homicide
  • Mental health provider records/reports subpoenaed by court for legal proceedings

Limits of Care

All counseling services are free to Motlow students. The length of treatment consists of short-term services. If it is determined that long-term mental health counseling services are more appropriate to address your clinical need(s), the therapist will work with you to provide a referral to a qualified mental health professional in the community.

If you are referred to a qualified mental health professional in the community, you may be charged for services by the agency you choose.
