CHARLOTTE ó Dr. Faith Drew has been named clinic director of the Pfeiffer Institute for Marriage and Family Therapy, a therapy and training clinic located at 4805 Park Road, Suite 250, between McAlister’s Deli and Pfeiffer University’s Charlotte campus.
The institute accepts referrals through its supervised service-learning component. It also serves as a field placement source for qualified marriage and family therapy graduate counseling interns from Pfeiffer University. The supervised experience will prepare interns to become clinicians with expertise in family systems.

Drew will supervise graduate students to ensure they complete the required 500 hours of face-to-face clinical field experience before graduation. Additional duties will include the oversight of approved field placements, programming of orientation programs for interns and collaboration of clinical self-studies and accreditation preparation.
Prior to Pfeiffer, Drew served as the associate director of the employee assistance program in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. She is a licensed marriage and family therapist, a licensed professional counselor and a certified employee assistance professional. She has presented extensively and published numerous articles on creativity, grief and loss, and work with juveniles.
Drew earned a master’s degree in marriage and family therapy from Abilene Christian University in Texas, and a Ph.D. in the same discipline from Texas Tech.
The Pfeiffer Institute is open Monday-Thursday from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. and Friday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 704-945-7324 or visit the Pfeiffer Institute Web site at www.pimft.com.
