Jeff Kozyra is a Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate specializing in individual and pre-marital counseling as well as spiritual direction in Formational Prayer Counseling and experientially-based models of care. Jeff earned his master’s degree in counseling from Denver Seminary being awarded the Dr. James R. Beck Counseling Licensure Award for excellence and potential in the field of licensed therapy. This recognition serves him as both a humbling reminder and challenging call to empathically and competently care for those people courageously seeking their own healing journey toward wholeness.
Jeff Kozyra is originally from Hartford, Connecticut and is married to high school sweetheart, Ruth for now over thirty years. They have enjoyed Colorado living since 1997 and have two grown children, Chase and Tori, the joys of their life, who also reside in-state although each periodically threatens leaving for warmer winters and nearby oceans.
Jeff is a retired Air Force officer with a diverse background as an aircrew member, national-level intelligence officer, graduate student with an M.S. in International Relations, and nine-year tenure as an assistant professor at the Air Force Academy. It was at the Academy where Jeff Kozyra learned of and grew in his teacher’s heart coupled with a passion for counseling from his classroom opportunities in the Behavioral Sciences department. Jeff spent his final military years in the Center for Character Development facilitating all-day seminars and mentoring future military leaders before retiring in 2006.
Jeff Kozyra is an ordained minister and has served in a number of leadership and team-building roles in pastoral care and groups ministries over the past eighteen years. These days, Jeff enjoys the double-honor of walking with couples through pre-marital counseling and officiating their wedding celebration. In recent years, Jeff has been trained under the expert hand of Dr. Terry Wardle in formational prayer counseling. Using this model of care, Jeff Kozyra has repeatedly experienced being on the front row of miracles watching lives transformed, identities restored and destinies reclaimed for those seeking more than just surface solutions to their problems.
