Prior to coming to Monmouth University, Dr. Andrew Lee finished his undergrad at the University of Pennsylvania with a BA in Psychology. He received his masters in clinical psychology from Fairleigh Dickinson University and his Doctorate from Rutgers. He worked at other institutions before Monmouth like at Kean University, as the director of their Counseling and Disability Services, and at Rutgers University, as a staff psychologist. Dr. Lee currently works here at Monmouth as the director of our Counseling and Psychological services.
The services that the Center offers to students are individual therapy, emergent or crisis therapy, and referrals and consultation. These services are not offered to employees; however, employees can seek help through HR and the Employee Assistance Program at no cost. The services offered at Monmouth are similar to those offered at Kean and Rutgers, but the one difference is that Monmouth offers walk ins at any time of office hours, whereas other institutions typically do not. As of Fall 2017, the Counseling and Psychological services are open Monday through Friday from 8:45 am to 5 pm during the school year, and also in the summer.
