Counseling Services

Welcome to Methodist University Counseling Services!

We are pleased that you are considering counseling. Life as a college student presents unique challenges. While at Methodist, you will undoubtedly go through times of transition, change and growth. While your main emphasis is on academics and learning, it is only natural to encounter challenges from time to time. You may experience common illnesses like anxiety and depression as well as difficulty coping with stress, adapting to change, forming relationships, and balancing work, play, and rest.

Your counseling with us will focus on working toward goals that you set for yourself. We will listen to you and help you to define your own goals. Together, we will develop a plan and use evidenced-based strategies that will help you move forward and meet the goals you set for yourself. Periodically, we will pause and assess our progress and our plan.

Remember, anything that is a problem to you is an appropriate topic to bring to a counseling session. Our goal is to provide you with the necessary tools to improve your overall well-being that will help you in being successful at Methodist University and beyond!

We are here and ready to help!
