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.

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. From there, we work together to develop your goals and find the best plan to reach those goals. Sometimes, we might need to resolve past traumas, lessen your anxiety, or improve depressive symptoms. If this is the case, I work from a unique and very interactive approach to help you find peace and move forward. We will work on understanding the mind-body connection and how it impacts you. I also enjoy helping people advance their lives utilizing a coaching approach.

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!

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.

Jody is great, direct and understands me. He is very responsive and I believe in his knowledge and expertise. I would recommend Jody to anyone.

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.

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

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 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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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

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 S.A. on Jul 30, 2019 after counseling with Joseph for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, sleeping disorders, and self esteem

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 BetterHelp!

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!

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 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 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.
