Counseling Center

Keeping Our Community Healthy

We hope that you are doing well in light of the ongoing concerns regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus). With this rapidly-evolving situation, we continue to evaluate how best to deliver our services in order to protect the health and safety of Drexel University's students and staff. As a result of recent announcements by the University, the staff of the Counseling Center will be operating remotely through the spring 2020 academic term; all on-campus/in-person services have been suspended.

Teletherapy services will be offered via HIPAA-compliant Zoom (video chat) and will be offered with an emphasis on addressing a student’s immediate concerns, with a particular focus on problem-solving and symptom management. In cases where a student may not be able to connect via Zoom, telephone sessions will be offered as an alternative. Please note that all group counseling and workshops will be unavailable. 

If you are interested in ongoing counseling, our Case Manager, Randy Hoffman, is available to help with referrals in the Philadelphia metro area. For students residing outside of the Philadelphia area, Randy can help with navigating insurance to find a provider, but she will be unable to provide specific referrals. Her email is rah356@drexel.edu.

Further updates will be posted as they become available. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. For more information about coronavirus visit https://drexel.edu/now/coronavirus/response/.


Hours and Scheduling

Monday - Friday: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Counseling Center will be scheduling teletherapy appointments between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday - Friday. If you would like to make an appointment for teletherapy or are trying to reach the Counseling Center for another issue, please email counseling@drexel.edu. Our voicemail will be checked every hour during normal business hours, so if you call us by phone we ask that you leave a message with your name and email contact information so we can respond.

If you are currently in crisis, please contact our on-call counselor at 215.416.3337. If this is a psychological emergency and you need immediate attention, please dial 911 or visit your nearest emergency room.
