Mali Jimenez, MSW, LCSW


Originally from Lima, Peru, Mali Jimenez is a bilingual (English/Spanish) Licensed Clinical Social Worker who specializes in working with adults to resolve trauma, attachment wounds, and build emotional regulation skills. She enjoys supporting young adults in finding purpose and meaning to their lives and has found that psychedelic therapy can create profound insights into these inquiries. She has also worked along the developmental spectrum with young children but has now shifted focus to the adult population.

Mali has a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Maryland Baltimore (2015), and is completing advanced training in Mindfulness-Based Psychedelic Therapy with the Center for Medicinal Mindfulness. Over the past 6 years she has worked with veterans and in non-profit settings, with homeless youth, undocumented immigrants and school aged children experiencing complex trauma. She shifted her work to private practice 4 years ago, establishing a successful private practice in Washington, DC, before moving to Boulder with her son in 2020. She is also in the middle of completing a three year training in the shamanic healing arts and incorporates these skills and insights into her work with plant medicine and trauma resolution.

She combines more traditional psychotherapy practices while encouraging clients to work with their breath and body to access greater insights and awareness to move unresolved emotional wounding to the surface.  Her approach also integrates 20 years of meditation practice with a process of establishing a partnership with the allies of the natural and spirit world to create a container for healing and transformation.

In her free time, Mali enjoys spending time with her son and walking her two dogs on the many trails in the Boulder area.
