The MU Counseling Center offers individual therapy to provide students with an opportunity to explore personal concerns one-to–one with a therapist. You will schedule appointments with your therapist directly, usually on a weekly basis. Individual appointments are 50 minutes, however your first appointment will about 90 minutes and will help us determine what services will best meet your needs. Therapy length is tailored to your needs within a brief therapy model. While your assessment counselor will ask about many areas of your life, the focus of therapy will be on working with you toward your specific goals. You and your therapist will work together to help you meet your goals both quickly and in ways that you can maintain after therapy ends.
If individual counseling at the MU Counseling Center is recommended, our staff will contact you as soon as possible to schedule an appointment with one of our staff counselors. This may or may not be the person you met with during the initial assessment. There is no additional cost for counseling beyond the student fees you already pay.
