Business of the Month:
Courageous Life Counseling, Coaching, & Consulting
Owner: Joleen Frideres
Who is Joleen’s favorite client? Darwin of course! (Just kidding); Though she 1st knew, when she was a kid living in Emmetsburg, that she had to become a Therapist when she saw a family member struggle with mental health & addiction. She put herself through undergrad at ISU, & grad-school while working in Omaha. Spending her entire life as a Mental Health professional, she is also a certified family trauma professional, couple’s therapist, & adhd specialist.
After moving back to our area in 2004, to be closer to family, she met Darwin, & started a family in Wesley. Hana is 13 & goes to Garrigan, & Michael is 27 & working for Reutzls Excavating. The Frideres are celebrating 14 years of marriage February 14th. ??
Joleen opened her own Practice in 2013, & is more excited than ever about helping those in need, “It tears my heart out to think of anyone struggling alone. There is absolutely no need to when all they need to do is reach out; Sadly, that sometimes is the hardest part”. This is why she has made herself so accessible, to make it as easy as possible for people to connect, get help. Making an appointment is a phone call away, 515/341-5800… & your first phone session is free. If you know someone in pain, you can help them with a gift certificate. Many people follow her on facebook, Courageous Life Counseling, to get a sense of who she is, & to tap the many resources, & Inspiration she offers. You can hear her on KMCR radio “Mental Health Mondays”, too.
