Training Director
(He/Him/His)

msl335@drexel.edu

Matthew LeRoy, PsyD, is the Training Director / Associate Director of the Counseling Center. He received his graduate degree from the Illinois School of Professional Psychology, and has practiced for over ten years at the University of Pennsylvania’s Counseling and Psychological Services. He is a generalist with extensive experience centered on issues related to equity and social responsibility. This work has entailed working with individuals who experience marginalization, and exploring the effect of privilege. He believes being a therapist requires flexibility in approaching students to meet their unique needs, and attention to the way culture and identity affects their lived experiences.

In therapy, Matt believes listening carefully and learning about the specific difficulties clients are experiencing is crucial to helping them live a more meaningful and authentic life. Therapy is inherently a time when individuals examine their lives in an attempt to improve it. In that effort, he sees his role as helping people understand their emotions and different patterns in their lives, which could be hurting their quality of life. He values discussions about relationships including the collaborative relationship between therapist and client, and the most significant relationships in clients' lives.

More personally, Matt enjoys reading speculative fiction, board games, and enjoys spending time with his cat, Arya. He is originally from New York, but over the past ten years has grown to love Philadelphia.

Elena Cucco, PhD

Elena Cucco, PhD
Staff Psychologist
Outreach Coordinator
(She/Her/Hers)

emc373@drexel.edu

Elena Cucco, Ph.D., received her doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Fairleigh Dickinson University in 2018 after completing an APA-accredited internship at the Veterans Affairs New Jersey Healthcare System. Subsequently, she completed a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Health Service Psychology at Princeton University’s Counseling and Psychological Services. Before joining Drexel, she worked as Group Coordinator and Staff Psychologist at Lehigh University’s Counseling and Psychological Services where she worked closely with campus initiatives to serve first generation and under-resourced college students.

Elena works with students from a relational framework that centers folx’s sociocultural identities. She believes that mutual inquiry into students’ experiences often creates the kind of understanding and self-compassion that opens the possibility to validate contextual harms, liberate internalized hate, and build connection across difference. She integrates psychodynamic, dialectical behavior therapy, sensorimotor, and feminist perspectives to help students reconnect with their inherent virtue, co-construct a narrative of affirmation, recognize the personal impact of social injustice, soften reflexive responses to pain, and move toward that which they find personally meaningful. Elena’s clinical interests include trauma and recovery, regulating intense emotions, identity formation, multiculturalism, and family/relationship concerns.

Outside of work, Elena spends her time listening to mid '00s emo, exploring the wide world of carbohydrates, lovingly caving to the many demands of her rescue Doge, and bookmarking Instagram workouts she will likely never complete.

nms368@drexel.edu

He completed his psychiatry residency program in 1995 at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

His view of psychiatric medications is that they can be beneficial as a supplement to the important practice of psychotherapy. He tries as best possible to keep their use to the safest minimal level, emphasizes avoidance of side effects, and encourages students to participate in the decision-making process of choosing which, if any, medications might be preferable. Natural supplements and diet adjustments can also be part of the treatment approach.
