Mid-South Professional Counseling

Mid-South Professional Counseling (MPC) is comprised of several locations in Memphis and surrounding areas. We provide services such as weekly counseling sessions and medication management at the outpatient level of care. We provide services for young children, adolescents, and adults. We are invested in providing evidence-based treatment protocols. Additionally, research studies have indicated for many years that the quality of the relationship with your mental healthcare provider is a critical predictor of a positive outcome. Therefore, our providers encourage ongoing feedback from you about the quality of the relationship in addition to your treatment protocol.

At MPC, we pride ourselves in welcoming persons of all backgrounds, lifestyles, and belief systems. We believe in keeping your sessions focused on your needs and goals, working with you based on your personal worldview and values. We consider ourselves allies of the LGBTQAI+ community (some of our providers are also members of the community). We embrace cultural, religious, and non-religious diversity. We understand it is difficult to take the first step in scheduling a therapy appointment, and we appreciate your courage in taking that step with us.

For adults who are in need of a higher level of care, MPC can assist you in getting an appointment for a thorough, level-of-care assessment with the Intensive Outpatient team of Mental Health Resources. See more about MHR’s programs by clicking on the MHR Services tab on this website.
