Jennifer Fadel, MA, LCMHC-A, NCC
Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate
Education: Ms. Fadel earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Columbus College of Art & Design and her Master of Arts degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at UNC-Charlotte. She is also a certified Dream Analyst from the Assis Institute: International Center for the Study of Archetypal Patterns.
Clinical Practice: Jennifer works with adolescents, young adults, adults and elders. She also provides Child-Parent Relationship Therapy. Experienced with grief, trauma, relationships and life transitions, her clinical practice focuses on both present and earlier life experiences that may influence their current coping and relating patterns. Early or recent trauma – including childhood or adolescent abuse or neglect – catastrophic loss, medical challenges, and overwhelming grief are central foci of her practice.
Ms. Fadel’s approach is holistic, attending to body, mind, and spirit and she integrates dreams and creative expression into the clinical work. Her belief is that the most effective therapy happens in a safe and confidential relationship between client and counselor.
Non-Clinical Experience: With her background in the arts, Jennifer has found a personal healing process in the arts throughout her career. She has shared that with others through arts outreach programs for UNCC and The Mint Museum, and with disadvantaged children in Mexico. Art has been a constant in her life and she currently continues her long-term project, The Museum of Dream Anthropology, which explores the meaning of archetypes and symbols in the unconscious psyche.
Clinical Team Membership: Ms. Fadel is a member of the Trauma Recovery Support and Psychotherapy team and the Children, Adolescents, Parents & Families Team.
