About Jessie Friedman MA LPC CPCC

I have been in private practice as a master’s level, licensed psychotherapist in Boulder, CO since 1991 and also hold a master’s degree in Art History and Museum Studies. Additionally, I have trained extensively and am certified in several, distinct coaching modalities, among them the highly regarded CTI – The Coaches Training Institute. I have worked as a psychotherapist at the Department of Social Services with survivors of sexual abuse and non-offending parents and also with adolescents in the throes of great angst and destructive behaviors. My interests have also led me to work actively in the world of the arts, cultural preservation, and the translation of Tibetan literature. I have single-parented for the great majority of the past 35 years, and most close to my heart are my three beautiful children, now truly beautiful adults.

I am passionate about the qualities of being human, the diverse cultural expressions and beauty of our humanity, and the keys to unfolding an individual’s greatest potential, fulfillment, and wellbeing. Entirely secular, my practice of counseling, coaching, and psychotherapy is deeply rooted in my personal practice of meditation, which helps me to stay centered in an unbiased and unconditionally empathetic and accepting space, holding the inherent wisdom, yearnings, and wholeness of each individual as a guiding principle.

I am genuinely, truly interested in who you are, what you are interested in, what you love, what you abhor, your history, your culture past and present, your dreams, your fears, what you see holding you back, your successes, your journey and where you’d like to go. I will hold you in unconditional care with your wellbeing leading our way. Together we will forge your distinct path toward wellbeing, insight, and wholeness, starting right where you are, which is just perfect wherever that is.

If you would like to further explore the journey of psychotherapy and/or life coaching with me, please write to me at [email protected].

Living from your authentic being will bring you your greatest satisfaction. Together we will reconnect you with the core of who you are and empower you to live from your innate fullness and depth.

My Therapeutic Modalities: My Style

I am deeply trained in many potent therapeutic modalities which include person-centereed Humanistic Pscyhology, Psychodynamic Therapy, Gestalt, Bowen Family Systems, Somatic Based Psychotherapies, Art Therapy, Strength-Based Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and of course Contemplative -or Mindfulness Based- Therapy. As we go through a session, or series of sessions, I call upon different skills that I feel will be helpful for you in learning more about yourself while holding and developing compassion for yourself.
