What to Expect

A counseling session is about you: You’re the boss. The counselor’s job is to listen and help guide you to where you want to go. The client and counselor together create a relationship. If you come prepared to discuss goals and what matters to you the most, you will benefit more from your session than if you take a backseat.


Length of Service

Like most college counseling centers, MDCC generally provides brief, solution-focused services. Some issues may take several sessions to work through. Should long-term services be appropriate, your counselor can assist you in finding an off-campus provider.
