Taylor Rashkow, MA, LPC
Therapist & Counselor
Taylor received her first Master’s Degree in Psychology from Adelphi University in Garden City, New York and then ventured onto get her second Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Syracuse University in Syracuse, New York.
At Colorado Women’s Center, creating meaningful therapeutic relationships and providing a safe space for her clients is Taylor’s top priority. She understands that the therapeutic relationship, in itself, is one of the most powerful tools in counseling and aims to assure that her and her clients are on an equal playing field. Her belief is that the client is the only one who can fully understand their own unique life experiences and strives to provide them with the tools they need to move forward and process those experiences.
Taylor aims to increase one’s personal congruence and authenticity through therapy and often uses existential and person-centered models in order to connect deeply and provide a mindful component to an individual, group, family, or couple’s journey. She is a firm believer that a significant amount of the human condition is affected by anxiety and aims to help reduce those anxieties with empathy, kindness, and understanding. She also uses Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy exercises in the counseling room and enjoys the eye-opening concepts of Impact Therapy.
Taylor has skilled experience with young children, families, couples, teens, and college students on a wide range of issues. She has particularly significant experience with clients who are going through transitional periods in their lives and strives to work with them to assure they’re able to achieve the sense of self and happiness that best suits their needs and wants. She has experience working with short and long-term trauma, abusive familial and impersonal relationships, behavioral issues, developmental struggles, anxiety, depression, college-related issues, LGBTQIA+ youth and adults, and body image/disordered eating issues.
Taylor is also experienced and certified in Victim Advocacy, helping assist victims of crimes in both her free time and in the counseling room.
Taylor enjoys the sport of triathlon, reading tons of mystery novels, getting crafty at home, and spending time with her two goofy dogs, Phoenix (a Tibetan Terrier) and Monty (a Cairn Terrier) and her loving (and also goofy) husband. She considers herself a lifelong learner.
