James A. McClintock Center for Counseling and Psychological Services

How to Use Our Services

During the regular school year, you can make an appointment to see a Counselor by calling or by visiting the McClintock Center for Counseling and Psychological Services. We are located on Drew University’s campus in Holloway Annex (in the same building as Health Services, see picture above) right up the hill from the University Commons. We are the door immediately to the left as you enter the building. You may walk in or call 973-408-3398.

After you call you will be scheduled for an appointment, it can usually be scheduled within a few days (in an emergency a counselor will see you right away). After the introductory interview, a treatment plan will be developed. This may be a referral to one of our therapeutic workshops or seminars, group counseling, short-term individual counseling, or referrals out for more intensive or specialized treatment. When therapy or support groups are being organized we usually send out e-mail messages to inform you of the current offerings.
