Rachael Meadows

(MA, LPC)

About Me

I am an individual and family therapist who is licensed in the state of Colorado. In my 19 years in the field I have worked with a wide variety of populations including at risk children and teens, incarcerated individuals, families involved in the foster care system and people who are trying to best manage the multiple demands of navigating life in today's world. My first priority in therapy is to create a space where you feel safe and can share what you are dealing with. I believe in the inherent worth and dignity of all humans and we often lose sight of our worth while we are busy living. Once you feel safe and worthy of an improved life, we can get down to working on specific ways for you to create that life. I use a holistic, trauma informed approach and incorporate Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and psycho-education based upon your specific needs. As a trained neurofeedback practitioner, I also incorporate techniques based in neuroscience to help you change the actual functioning of your brain to help you reach your goals. I am a parent coach and have witnessed (and lived) the challenges of parenting in our modern world where youth are exposed to media and influences they must learn to successfully navigate throughout their developmental stages. Human beings are often messy and complex but within the messiness and complexity often lies our full depth of human experience. It is often in the midst of the storm we find the best parts of ourselves. From that space we can develop resilience and skills on which to build a rich and meaningful life and deepen our connections to others. Embarking on the journey of self-discovery through therapy is not easy. It is, however, an extremely valuable endeavor and has the potential to positively alter the course of your life. I look forward to being on this journey with you and it is an honor to be part of your change and growth process.

I absolutely love Rachael and all of the help she has provided me.

Rachael Meadows is a very professional and knowledgeable therapist and person. I greatly appreciate her knowledge and listening skills. It has been a huge blessing being in therapy.

Written by R.I. on Apr 26, 2021 after counseling with Rachael for 4 months on issues concerning trauma and abuse, and coaching

Rachael is a really awesome counselor. I love that when I talk to her, conversation flows naturally and it truly shows that she cares about my well-being. She has helped me through whatever I ask of her - be it anxiety from an injury, stress from upcoming work projects, or even mindfulness! Her breadth of knowledge is apparent and I always look forward to our sessions.

One word: amazing.

Written by K.E. on Jan 27, 2021 after counseling with Rachael for 5 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and career difficulties

Rachael was a great fit for my therapy process. She is a wonderful listener and will help guide the conversation and session easily and comfortably. She is great with feedback and doing her best to provide you with the specific factors of therapy you find valuable. She is professional whilst still maintaining a comforting and friendly demeanor. I would highly recommend her to anyone who does not mind a bit of a wait in response time. This is the only "negative" I could even think of and I still think it's more neutral than anything because sometimes the silence and the wait is the most helpful response you can recieve.

As someone who struggles with openness and sharing, I appreciate Rachael's style of actively listening and engaging in active two way discussions to keep me engaged. I feel safe talking to her and feel she has sought to understand my struggles with empathy. I have not trusted any other counselor in the same way.

Written by P.A. on Aug 23, 2020 after counseling with Rachael for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

I was incredibly hesitant to give therapy a shot. Being gifted with Rachael Meadows as my counselor/therapist has already made great change in my life. To have such a kind and understanding unattached party to my life, really helps me take a look at the issues I face and their levels of varying importance and reality. I think it’s really comforting to have some things in common with Rachael, as well.

I have had 2 sessions so far and it has already helped so much!! Not only that but I love when I have a problem I can send her a message and she responds that night to help. I recommended this app and counselor to everyone I know! She is really great at listening and offering solutions or different perspectives. She’s great!
