Welcome to Montgomery College Personal Counseling
The Montgomery College Counseling and Advising Centers’ Counseling and Disability Support Services (DSS) faculty assist students with academic, personal, and career concerns. The primary emphasis is on supporting students to achieve their educational goals. Counselors do not provide ongoing therapy services to students, but can provide brief personal counseling on a short-term basis to deal with an immediate concern. Brief personal counseling is defined as any sessions regarding a concern that is not academic in nature. Counselors will also refer students to local community counseling resources which can provide further support and treatment for ongoing mental health needs.
