We are here to help

Confidential counseling services are available to currently enrolled students. Until further notice, we offer telehealth and limited in-person appointments.



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 
  • 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 
  • Other


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 a court for legal proceedings


All counseling services are free to Motlow students. The length of treatment consists of short-term assistance. 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.

Let's Tele Talk

Let's Tele Talk is a drop-in consultation service offered by Motlow counseling Services Tuesdays at 2:00. Until further notice, these drop-in opportunities will be virtual. It provides you with an opportunity to have an informal, confidential, anonymous conversation with a Motlow Therapist. You can share your mental health concerns, work on problem-solving together, learn about helpful campus and community resources, or ask questions about counseling.

Join Zoom Link Tuesdays @ 2:00 PM.

Let's Tele Talk consultations are:

  • Open to all students
  • Discuss any concern
  • First come, first served—no appointments needed
  • Brief—up to 15 minutes
  • Anonymous—no paperwork to complete
  • This is not counseling or a crisis service
