Hi! My name is Rachel Gordon and I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) candidate and registered psychotherapist in the Denver Tech Center. I’m a mindfulness-based therapist specializing in anxiety, depression, stress, men’s mental health, divorce/relationship issues, and eating disorders/body image issues. Broadly speaking, I teach people how to relate to their thoughts differently, and in doing so, find freedom from suffering.
My therapy practice is rooted in Buddhist psychology, an integrative, holistic approach to mental health and wellness which emphasizes the belief that suffering stems from the mind. Combining Buddhist philosophy, including techniques such as mindfulness, yoga and meditation, with traditional counseling (“talk therapy”), I help clients learn how to quiet the mind, become present in their lives and awaken to the deep sense of inner peace, calm and stillness inherent in, and always available to, each and every one of us.
More specifically, my counseling approach helps clients:
- Decrease anxiety and stress
- Cope with painful emotions, including depression and grief
- Increase overall happiness and well-being
- Live more authentically
- Feel healthier, centered and aligned – in mind, body and spirit
- Learn self-care, self-love and self-compassion
- Get comfortable with change and uncertainty
- Become more mindful and present in their daily lives.
Whether you or your teen is struggling with anxiety, depression or an eating disorder/body image issues; problems at work or in your social life; the pain of a divorce or other relationship problems; or generally feeling lost, stressed or overwhelmed, I can help you achieve a real and lasting peace of mind.

Prior to becoming a therapist and returning to my hometown of Denver, I spent a decade working in international development. Living on 4 different continents and traveling to some 35 countries taught me about alternative, non-Western ways of living. I took my first yoga class nearly 20 years ago and throughout my travels and time spent living in different states and countries, my yoga practice remained the one constant in my life. About 5 years ago, while working on my Master’s in Counseling Psychology, I decided to deepen my practice and learn more about Buddhism, mindfulness and meditation. Through trainings, retreats, informal learning and formal academic research, I’ve developed a substantial knowledge base around mindfulness and Buddhist psychology and have truly been astounded by the numerous ways in which this approach helps clients live healthier, happier lives.
