Counseling and Consultation Services
Individual counseling is available to any currently registered Morgan student. Counseling can address a wide range of issues including anxiety, identity issues, self-esteem issues, adjustment concerns, depression, stress, traumatic events, relationship concerns, academic challenges, and time management concerns.
Although the counseling center does not have session limits, individual counseling is generally short-term, present-focused, and addresses one or two specific issues. Student can attend up to 12 individual counseling sessions per academic year; however, most individuals attend between 6-8 sessions to address a specific issue.
When a student's concerns require more specialized care or longer-term counseling, a referral off campus is recommended. You can speak with a clinician regarding off-campus referrals or go through your insurance provider.
Students may come to the Counseling Center for a 30-minute consultation, for the first time or in a crisis, during walk-in hours, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday-Friday. The last walk-in appointment starts at 2:30 pm. Students who wish to be seen on walk-in should arrive by this time. During this time, students can meet with a clinician to discuss their concerns and determine what support, if any, the student may be needing. If their concerns are not resolved during the walk-in session, the student may elect to schedule an intake appointment with an available provider.
Walk-in sessions are considered consultations rather than counseling or therapy. While rules of confidentiality apply to consultations, such contact with a provider is not considered to be part of any treatment or an ongoing relationship.
Walk-in consultations are scheduled on a first come first served basis. Walking in at a specific time does not guarantee you will be seen right away. Walk-in appointments are for emergencies and first-time clients only. If you currently have a counselor, please call to schedule an appointment with them.
Groups provide a safe and supportive environment in which you can experiment with new behaviors, improve communication skills, and receive feedback from other students with similar concerns, experiences, and interests. One of the most valuable aspects of participating in a group is learning that you are not alone. Each group is led by one or more of our licensed clinicians.
Some groups are considered general therapy groups and address a range of interpersonal concerns. Other groups are more focused on specific skills and themes such as social anxiety, men's issues, women's issues, and mindfulness.
Some students are involved in both group and individual counseling/therapy. There are no limits to the number of groups you can attend. If you are interested in group counseling, please contact us at (443)885-3130 for more information.

In couples counseling, counselors help partners - married or not married -build healthier relationships by exploring their needs and improving how they communicate. Short-term couples counseling is available at the counseling center. One person in the relationship must be a registered Morgan student.
