Julie Faddis


Julie Faddis, LPC

Enrollment Director

Julie completed her master’s degree in counseling and art therapy at Avila University and is a licensed professional counselor in the state of Missouri. Julie’s passion is for teenagers, and she uses art as a creative therapeutic strategy to help students resolve the tension and pain in their lives. Her desire to work with adolescents and families drew her to residential treatment. Julie has been working as a therapist in residential since February 2012. Julie uses an assortment of clinical techniques as a catalyst for growth and healing including art therapy, EMDR, TF-CBT, DBT skills, etc. She desires to help teens discover their passions and to be productively involved at Embark, in their community and ultimately when they transition home. In November 2022, Julie transitioned into the Enrollment Director position and finds great joy in helping families work through one of the most challenging times in their lives as smoothly as possible on enrollment day. Julie loves being active with the residents and finding ways to create joy with others.

When Julie is not working, she enjoys playing with her son, being outdoors, rock climbing, painting, and being active.
