Background, Work, and Education

She has worked in mental health settings, adolescent treatment programs, and private practice since 1982. Dr. Frey works with adolescents and adults. She specializes in working with all types of trauma, including childhood trauma, sexual abuse, addictions, mood and anxiety disorders, traumatic brain injuries, and trans-generational issues.

She also has a deep interest and expertise in performance enhancement, mind-body issues, and spirituality.

Though Dr. Frey is skilled in many therapeutic modalities – including EMDR, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Clinical Hypnosis, Play Therapy, and Sand Tray therapy – she is particularly focused on Brainspotting because it can relieve trauma and enhance performance quickly and effectively.

Pie’s career began in 1975 as a teacher working with the children of migrant farm workers in Colorado. She taught in Boulder Valley School System from 1977-1986, teaching Special Education, Emotionally and Behaviorally Disturbed Students, and regular education. She earned her Doctorate in Psychology from the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, CO, in 1977.

As a senior Brainspotting trainer, Pie brings her salt-of-the-earth, lighthearted and intuitive nature to each participant of her intensives. As a two-time attendee, I always leave with inspiration, enthusiasm, and abundance of love in my heart. Pie is truly a treasure both as a Brainspotting trainer and as a stellar human being.

It's been a full week back at my office since completing Pie's wonderful intensive, and I can honestly say that the work in Brainspotting, which I already loved, was made even richer through this experience. It is not only that she shares the depth and practicality of her extensive experience: Pie also makes an opening for fellow participants to share themselves as deeply, creating a real communion of Practitioners to learn with and learn from.
