Personal Counseling

College is an exciting time of learning and growth … but the academic pressures and a busy social pace can cause intermittent periods of stress for students. Our personal counseling staff is here to help ensure a positive college experience and encourage personal growth throughout your time at Maryville.

What Does the Office of Personal Counseling Do?

Services available at Maryville include individual and group counseling, educational workshops, and referrals to outside psychiatric and mental health resources.

Our Mission

Our mission is to actively promote and facilitate the personal growth and well-being of Maryville students through psychosocial support, education, and intervention in a safe and confidential environment.
