Jennifer Freifeld, LCSW
       Adolescent & Adult Therapist


Seeking therapy shows your strength to face challenges.  I respect your choice to create meaningful changes and would be honored to be a part of your process. When we meet, we will discuss your difficulties and goals.  I will hear your unique experience and will learn what motivates you. From there, we will choose the therapeutic approaches which best fit you.  I may draw from evidence-based practices, mindfulness approaches, and experience with mediation and the arts. I look forward to meeting you, collaborating with you, and celebrating with you as you find more of what you are looking for—whether that is acceptance, peace, connection, courage, exuberance, or another personal goal.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW).  I have a BA in Political Science from Swarthmore College and an MSW from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  I had the opportunity to train at Jewish Family Services and the UNC Child Psychiatry Outpatient Clinic, where I developed a psychodynamic foundation for my therapeutic work.

Prior to joining The Mindly Group, I worked at two private practices in Durham. I have experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and families facing a variety of issues related to anxiety, depression, self-esteem, life transitions, past trauma, and relationship difficulties.

In my experience, I have found challenges faced by young adults especially compelling. Young adults may be exploring identity, coming to terms with past trauma, reflecting on parental or other past relationships, and negotiating current relationships while under multiple pressures associated with transitions, school, career, family, and peers.

Working through misunderstanding has also been a long-standing interest. Prior to pursuing my MSW, I founded and led an interfaith dialogue group, co-led dialogue groups for diverse teenagers through Seeds of Peace and became involved with district court mediation. 

Having danced professionally in New York City and locally, I am keenly interested in the connection between the mind and the body and issues specific to artists, athletes, and their families.
