Counseling Center

Welcome to MVCC's Counseling Center

We know that going to college means big life changes, and many students often have trouble adjusting to their new surroundings and routine.

The Counseling Center serves to assist you in that transition, as well as to help you navigate the path to personal and academic success.

Counselors help all students – from teenagers to adults – adjust to college life and address any personal challenges or barriers that may get in the way. As objective listeners, counselors can help you think through important life decisions that may affect your academic career. They also can assist in defining your goals, and help you come up with a plan to get there.

  • Stress/Time management
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Grief/Loss
  • Relationship Issues
  • Anger management
  • Addictions
  • Domestic Violence
  • Sexual Assault
  • Eating Disorders
