Counseling Service

Heal. Grow. Discover. Recover. Strengthen. Challenge. Explore.

The Counseling Service supports students as they navigate challenges during their time at MHC, from stress, anxiety, and depression to cultivating healthy relationships and overcoming barriers to reaching their goals. Counseling Service clinicians value all aspects of students' identities and use culturally sensitive and holistic approaches as they help students achieve their full potential and engage purposefully in the world.

Welcome (back)!

Currently, Counseling Service is available for both urgent concerns and routine clinical appointments. Clinical services can be provided virtually or in-person.
