What does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions. Thriveworks helps people live happier, more fulfilling lives. Clients are guided and supported as they work through their unique mental health challenges – and, along the way, shown the life-changing power of therapy.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including CBT / Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems.

What should we know about your experiences and background?

Jennifer Meador is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Licensed School Counselor with 12 years of experience in the mental health field. Jennifer is passionate about providing a safe, open, and supportive space for children, adolescents, and young adults to explore, develop, and realize their potential. She respects a client s subjective experiences and specializes in anxiety, depression, trauma, relational issues, adjustment challenges, and child and adolescent development. Jennifer completed her Master of Counseling (MAC) at Spring Arbor University and her Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Counselor Education at Western Michigan University. As a former school counselor and current professor, Jennifer has ample experience working with children, adolescents, and young adults as they navigate stressors, explore their identity and self-concept/self-esteem, experience relational challenges, trauma, adjustment concerns, and more. Because she believes in the power of the therapeutic relationship as a way to support clients, she aims to create an honest and safe space, while utilizing multiple treatment approaches, including mindfulness techniques, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), solution-focused therapy, and interpersonal therapy. A person s life journey is not static, but rather filled with many experiences that elicit excitement, comfortability, hardships, and challenges. Jennifer is confident that she can provide a therapeutic space and relationship to help support you through this life journey, whether that involves gaining new perspectives, exploring and becoming curious about challenges you face, developing strategies to help cope with hardships in your life, or simply having a safe space to talk about challenges you experience. If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please schedule an appointment with her today!
