Individual and Relationship Counseling
The personal concerns of Drexel students vary greatly, and our Counseling Center offers goal-focused individual counseling for support. Students initially meet with a therapist for an assessment to discuss their presenting concerns and to determine the type of services which will best meet their needs.
The Counseling Center offers several Emotional Well-being Workshops throughout the term that offer information, coping strategies, and tools to address common concerns faced by college students. We know that Drexel students are incredibly busy and can benefit from quick and useful tools for common presenting concerns. Workshops meet once a week for a series of 3–4 weeks for 50 minutes. Our Wellness Workshops are formatted so that you can expect a classroom-style learning environment, and you can share as much or as little as you want. Each workshop comes with a student workbook that allows you to practice new skills between sessions. View our Workshops to see what is currently being offered.
If you are interested in attending any (or all!) of the workshops, schedule an Initial Consultation and tell your counselor. If you are already seeing a therapist at the Counseling Center, tell them you are interested in a workshop. You are free to do more than one workshop and to repeat them as often as you like! Check with the front desk for current scheduling and availability. When scheduled for an Emotional Wellbeing Workshop, you must come to each session on time, as the sessions build upon each other.
Couples counseling is available for students and their partners if both are currently enrolled as full-time students at Drexel University. If your partner is not enrolled at Drexel, you may contact us for information on community referral resources. Couples of all genders and sexual orientations are welcome!
The Counseling Center offers a variety of outreach to campus partners — including faculty and staff, student groups, and campus organizations — to promote wellness and resiliency, destigmatize mental health, and offer preventative interventions using a social justice lens.
If you are concerned about a friend, student or family member; want advice about how to encourage someone you care about to get help; or you have general questions about our services; contact the Counseling Center at 215.895.1415 to request a consultation. We will have a counselor contact you to discuss further.
For faculty and professional staff who may wish to consult with a counselor, or who want to learn more about how and when to make a referral, please see our Faculty and Staff Resources.
Our Case Manager is available for students who would like assistance connecting with an off-campus mental health provider. The Counseling Center may make a recommendation for a student to be referred off-campus when a student may be better suited for specialized care and/or when the student's needs fall outside the scope of the Center's brief, goal-focused model. Our Case Manager also assists in navigating insurance and helping think through the type of care and provider you might be interested in working with in the community. The Case Manager will also be sure to follow up with you to see if you need any further assistance.
Part-Time Student Support
Students taking less than 12 undergraduate credits or 9 graduate credits who are considered part-time are eligible for group therapy, wellness workshops, access to our Case Manager for community referrals, and a one-time consultation with a clinician to help identify personal concerns and to find appropriate resources in your area.
