(MA, LMFT)

About Me

Hi, my name is Jody (Joseph) Frey and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in CO and MN. Thanks for reaching out and for wanting to learn more about me. I have been serving people for over 25 years in a variety of settings: military, business, and therapy. For the last eight years, I have been focusing on helping people resolve their trauma. I am EMDR trained as well as being a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) to better serve those struggling with deep hurts or wounds from the past. I have a Bachelor’s Degree from the United States Military Academy at West Point in Human Factor’s Engineering and a Master’s Degree from Argosy University in Marriage and Family Therapy.

As a therapist my passion has been focused on helping teens. I have extensive experience in listening to teens and providing them a safe place to voice their concerns while challenging them to move forward and through their struggles. I fully believe that no single approach works for all people in all situations so we will work to understand and define your unique challenges.

My therapy style has been developed from six years active duty as an Army Officer, 10 years in corporate leadership, 15 years running my own successful business, and seven years as a therapist helping others. My clients often enjoy my challenging and focused style and find comfort as we draw out their inner dialogue which is negatively impacting their current emotional state.

Outside of therapy, I love techie stuff and enjoy sports, working out, and playing video games.

Written by M.I. on Jun 18, 2020 after counseling with Joseph for 2 months on issues concerning relationship issues

Jody is awesome. He’s clear, consistent, and doesn’t sugar coat. The way he leads the conversation when digging into deep, maybe hidden, layers of life is equally gracious as it is challenging.

Great councilor!

Joseph is the best. He listens and totally understands me. He gives the best advice and really pushes me in the best way possible to overcome any obstacle.

Written by J.U. on Jun 05, 2020 after counseling with Joseph for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, parenting issues, and career difficulties

We have actually only had one counseling session but I felt he had very good experience with family and teen problems which is a big issue for me now. He gives great real world advice and solutions I had not considered before. He does text daily in between counseling sessions which I appreciate very much.

Joseph is great for me. I think he knows what he's talking about and is very supportive, I like that he has a sense of humor as well.

Written by S.H. on May 09, 2020 after counseling with Joseph for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

He challenges me and gives me good advice on proper solutions. He responds in a timely manor as well.

Written by C.O. on Apr 29, 2020 after counseling with Joseph for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship

Jody is taking good care of me. He is genuinely interested in the root of my issues/anxieties in life and I'm grateful for his coaching.

Written by G.E. on Apr 27, 2020 after counseling with Joseph for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, self esteem, and adhd

Joseph does a great job. He is compassionate as well as being able to know how to get an individual to use or critical thinking in order to help them solve certain problems.

Written by M.A. on Apr 21, 2020 after counseling with Joseph for 2 weeks

He has done an amazing job challenging me to think in new, more productive ways. I also appreciate the guidance I receive from him rather than just asking how something may or may not make me feel. After speaking with him I feel empowered to make positive changes, not hide or use my struggles as a crutch.

Written by R.A. on Mar 12, 2020 after counseling with Joseph for 4 months

Joseph has an amazing ability to know when I need a poke, when I need a push, and when I need space. I always feel completely comfortable and never pressured. He is insightful and says the things I need to hear without making me feel judged. He also gives excellent advice for changing unhealthy thought patterns and creating good habits. I highly recommend him.

Working with Jody in the teen counseling platform has been great

Written by H.A. on Mar 03, 2020 after counseling with Joseph for 7 months

He's very understanding and knowledgeable. Positive and patient even when I don't respond.

Written by E.R. on Feb 27, 2020 after counseling with Joseph for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

Jody was excellent to have as a therapist. He helped me deal with some pretty substantial problems that I've been dealing with for years. He was very thoughtful but direct when he needed to be. Overall my experience was overwhelming positive. After a few months talking to him and working through everything I was able to go about my normal life again. I had gotten to the point where I couldn't sleep, was losing weight and started going gray (I'm in my 20's) from the stress of it. He was able to help me work through it and get back to a healthy mental state. 10/10 would recommend.

Written by G.R. on Feb 27, 2020 after counseling with Joseph for 2 weeks

Amazing. Very attentive. Listens well. Offers advice when appropriate. Highly recommend - one of the most genuine and caring people I've met.

Written by K.E. on Feb 19, 2020 after counseling with Joseph for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

Jody is great. Very matter-of-fact. Dives straight into things. He has been so helpful. I really enjoy our sessions.

Written by M.E. on Jan 20, 2020 after counseling with Joseph for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

After years of being in therapy, Joseph is one of the best therapists I've worked with. What I really think is great about him is that he helps you find solutions and he shares his knowledge about what is appropriate/inappropriate behaviors both on an individual and relationship level. He is not the type of therapist to bounce questions back on the individual asking "What do you think?" I've been with many therapists that do that and it gets frustrating as the reason I'm in therapy is I don't know what to think/how to resolve and get better on my own. Joseph is patient, direct, knowledgeable and fair-I really appreciate everything he's done to help my family during some difficult times.

Written by C.A. on Jan 19, 2020 after counseling with Joseph for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, parenting issues, self esteem, coping with life changes, and coaching

Jody is awesome because he can be a very direct communicator that can coach you through stuff or he can also guide you through deeper stuff with thought provoking questions about your feelings and experiences. Combining both approaches work great for me.

Written by L.O. on Jan 13, 2020 after counseling with Joseph for 3 months on issues concerning relationship issues, and intimacy-related issues

At first I was fairly skeptical of online counseling, but the ability to communicate with a counselor at any point during the day was helpful. I found that Joseph fry was very responsive. On top of that even quite available on weekends and evenings, which was very nice. I personally liked the style of counseling he used. He doesn't do it all for you... he pushed me to make my own choices and solve my own problems by pointing me in the right direction and giving me the tools needed. Then, when he could see that it clicked he would push me further to the edge and past what I thought I was capable of. Definitely helped me work through several issues personally. He taught me ways to work through other challenges that may arise after I've completed my counseling sessions.

Jody has helped us more than we had EVER imagined he would. We are so grateful he was assigned as our counselor!

Joseph Frey watched our text dissertations go by, read them and gleaned out the important items from the emotional outpourings with surgical precision. We are a tough case and he worked with us with insight and care. Highly recommend him

Written by N.A. on Nov 24, 2019 after counseling with Joseph for 7 months

I have been working with Jody for a few months now, and he has been really great! He is extremely supportive and caring and continues to help me resolve my issues and grow in my faith. He challenges me when necessary, but is quick to support me when things get tough. I would definitely recommend working with Jody.

Written by D.A. on Nov 21, 2019 after counseling with Joseph for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and career difficulties

This was the first time I have ever sought help for my anxiety. In the last 2 months Joseph gave me so many tools to use to help calm me down and work through the issues that cause my stress and anxiety. I feel he truly cares for those he's working with. Thanks again!

Great job helping us

Written by N.A. on Nov 16, 2019 after counseling with Joseph for 5 months on issues concerning relationship issues

Jody has been wonderful to work with! He helped with marital counseling to help my husband and I improve our relationship. Jody was very accommodating with our restricted schedule and we left every session in a much better place than we started. Both my husband and I feel that Jody was incredibly helpful for us, and we will definitely come back to him again if we hit a rough patch!

Written by E.D. on Nov 13, 2019 after counseling with Joseph for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and addictions

I've done a lot of counseling through the years but this is the first time I've been able to attend to my issues throughout the week between the regular one on one appointments. Having someone there to listen when I need it and who keeps me moving in my recovery is amazing. Never experienced anything like it before and I'm appreciating it greatly.

Written by J.A. on Nov 13, 2019 after counseling with Joseph for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, and adhd

I felt heard and seen. I appreciated his candor and insight.

Was skeptical of a phone counseling relationship, but it has proven easier and more flexible, ultimately a better service. Jodi is a flexible and accommodating person, highly recommended.

Outstanding and caring communicator who is great at staying in touch and answering questions. Provides great advice and really cares. Wisdom and insight that has been invaluable so far.

Written by J.E. on Oct 08, 2019 after counseling with Joseph for 1 month

Jody (Joseph) has been really wonderful in helping me identify and start to work on negative experiences and beliefs that are affecting me daily. He challenges me and always makes sure we are on the right track by asking me how I’m feeling about the discussion. I feel encouraged by him and am starting to believe that I can truly change the things I want to change about my life if I continue to put the work in with him!

Written by L.I. on Sep 23, 2019 after counseling with Joseph for 2 months

Joseph is a truly amazing counselor. He is so supportive and caring. He listens and offers advice when needed. I feel blessed to have him walk alongside me and guide me with my struggles!

Written by A.S. on Sep 19, 2019 after counseling with Joseph for 2 months

Joseph has really helped me grow as a Christian while unpacking a variety of challenging topics. I always feel supported even when the feedback wasn't exactly what I wanted to hear. I worked through issues with self esteem, motivation, anxiety, and marriage. I appreciate Josephs perspective and approach to counseling. I highly recommend him.

Written by A.N. on Sep 09, 2019 after counseling with Joseph for 2 months

Jody has been great for listening and letting me get my frustrations out on a variety of subjects. He is great at offering other ways to look at circumstances and try to get me to see it another way.

Written by B.A. on Aug 21, 2019 after counseling with Joseph for 2 months on issues concerning intimacy-related issues

Jodi has been of great help and has helped me work on a few different aspects of my life. I've struggled with intimacy related issues that have caused my self esteem to dip, as well as career path anxiety. He’s been a great help in guiding me to feel better about everything which has allowed me to continue to improve and get better. I’ll definitely be coming back to him in the future if needed.

Written by K.A. on Aug 13, 2019 after counseling with Joseph for 2 weeks

Joseph helped me navigate one of the most difficult experiences of my life and continues to guide me along my healing journey. I am SO incredibly grateful for him and for teen counseling!

Written by D.O. on Jul 29, 2019 after counseling with Joseph for 2 weeks

Joseph is thoughtful and responsive. Very adept at sifting through my content and focusing on what really matters to drive thoughtful results. Very nice to have him and this service for the periodic tune-up or speed bumps of life navigation.

Written by B.R. on Jul 04, 2019 after counseling with Joseph for 3 weeks

Absolutely brilliant! He helped me out of a pretty dark place and was nothing but helpful! For men who are looking for a counselor who understands what it is like to be a man in today's world with a family, with kids and responsibilities, job, etc, I was extremely impressed with his ability to get down to it and understand what I was talking about. He's great at getting to the root of the issue too. No need to slog through 8,000 words to find out what point he's trying to make. He has a knack for asking exactly the right question in about 2-3 sentences. If you're looking for a counselor who isn't the typical counselor, he's your guy!

Written by T.I. on Jun 21, 2019 after counseling with Joseph for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, and self esteem

Joseph is amazing. He is tough when I need the extra push to dig deep and be honest in facing the roots of my issues. He has helped me to discover major things about myself, and given me creative and unconventional ways to work through it. I feel like he genuinely cares and he even checks in with me when I haven't messaged for a day or two.

Written by A.M. on May 30, 2019 after counseling with Joseph for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

Jody is a great asset to your team of counselors. He tends to be very neutral and is great at redirecting and interrupting when things are becoming unproductive. He’s very helpful and involved in our online chat sessions as well. His response time is great and he has been so gracious with his time when we need it most. Thanks!!

Written by E.R. on May 28, 2019 after counseling with Joseph for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, bipolar disorder, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Joseph was instrumental in me getting through some of the hardest times I’ve experienced in a long while. He was understanding, supportive, yet wasn’t afraid to push or encourage me in any certain direction. He answered honestly and professionally, and I was so so so impressed and grateful for all he did.

Written by S.U. on May 28, 2019 after counseling with Joseph for 2 weeks

So far, I like Joseph's approach. He has suggestions without being overbearing. Thanks!

Written by K.E. on Apr 13, 2019 after counseling with Joseph for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, and family conflicts

He has been extremely responsive and helpful. Because of his advice I’ve recommended this site to a variety of people I know. I was also surprised how well he matched with the concerns and issues I’m having.

Written by M.C. on Apr 12, 2019 after counseling with Joseph for 1 month

Jody helped me learn strategies to cope with anxiety. We talked through specific examples in my life. He would help me figure out the root cause and suggest ways to help me deal with it. He helped my self esteem and would point me to God in every session. I really appreciated that! He's a wonderful counselor and is very easy to talk to.

Written by S.A. on Mar 06, 2019 after counseling with Joseph for 2 weeks

I have been working with Jody for about a month now. He challenges me to become a better version of myself by reminding me who God says I am & gives me scripture to reflect on while at the same asking tough questions that require me to “sit down” as I like to call it & really dig deep behind the matter of my challenges. Jody never rushes my thoughts but instead listens & helps me to dissect them to get to the heart of the matter. He offers suggestions for books to read, scriptures to study, etc and for me I find that extremely helpful! Jody, you are doing work for the Lord & it really shows. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
