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 in consultation with the Counseling and Psychological Services treatment team. The treatment plan may be:

  • Group counselingAll requests for services are first considered for potential group membership. For a variety of problems, group treatment is more effective than individual therapy and it is especially effective for college-age people. Unlike individual therapy, group therapy is not time-limited.
  • Referral to one of our Therapeutic Workshops or Seminars, These are open to any Drew student, run on an open basis
  • Short-term individual counseling. Most of our students are seen for brief therapy (1-12 sessions). If you are to be seen for individual therapy, the team will assign you to a therapist.
  • Referrals out for more intensive or specialized treatment. There are many local therapists and treatment centers that provide long term or specialized treatment, many of whom are within walking distance to the campus.
