Frederick J. Mooney, LPC (he / his)
I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor for more than 20 years. I currently work as a Counselor for Arapahoe Community College and I have a private practice in Centennial, Colorado. My background experience comes from being a veteran of the U.S. Army; teaching students with severe emotional disturbances at the Middle School and High School level for more than 36 years; and teaching at two universities, one in a Counseling Education Department and one in a Teacher Education Department. My experiences include helping first responders, veterans, families, and individuals, deal with traumatic episodes. When I meet with a client, I ask them to picture 3 windows. One window represents the future, one window represents the present, and one window represents the past. I go with the client to the window the client chooses. Each client I see knows they were heard accurately.

I am a licensed Jungian Psychotherapist. I am a contractor employed with Arapahoe Community College. I am a veteran of the U. S. Navy and was a 1st responder. I have worked in hospitals, clinics, for the counties, courts, non-profit organizations, and other professional organizations. My areas of expertise include veterans, 1st responders, spirituality, life transitions, depression, anxiety, grief/loss, stress, anger, drug/alcohol, career/vocational development, relationships, communication, personality and developmental disorders, children, divorce, and marriage.

My professional philosophy when working with anyone is to meet them where they are at, not where I want them to be. If you are willing to show up, so am I.
