I’m Isaac Meadow. I’ve helped hundreds of clients find more joy, freedom, and balance in their lives.
If you found me, you’re probably looking for something beyond talk therapy. You may be functioning well, but struggling with some aspect of your life: relationships, stress, anxiety, depression, past trauma, or family wounding. Your story and the places that you get stuck are unique, and I like to learn them. However, I believe that the purpose of therapy is ultimately to feel healthy, balanced, and vital so you can share your highest potential with the world. As a client, I help you move past problems and obstacles and into more clarity in your body, more aliveness in relationships, and more connected to your life’s purpose. In our work together, we’ll go beyond talking on the couch. We’ll role play, make sounds, learn breathing practices, do specific meditations, or work hands-on through the body to release tension and break free—sometimes even in the first session.
As of June 2018, my practice is full and I am unable to take any new clients. Feel free to check back from time to time. I will update this page when I have availability.
