Gina Mead

Clinical Associate
Specializing in Children, Adolescents, & Teens

Hi, I’m Gina Mead (she/her), a Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate, Nationally Certified Counselor and Mental Health Clinical Associate at Spectrum Connections Therapy. I earned my Master’s in Clinical Mental Health from Adams State University. My focus during graduate school was working with clients experiencing grief, trauma, and loss. Additionally, I have many years of experience working with neurodivergent children, adolescents, and families in school-based settings. At Spectrum Connections Therapy, I focus on supporting neurodivergent youth and families living with autism spectrum, ADHD, trauma, and grief. I also have a special interest in working with children, adolescents, and teens who struggle with anxiety, perfectionism, self-harm, and challenges with social skills that can often accompany neurodivergence.

I believe there is an innate ability within each of us to grow, heal, and thrive. Through a trauma-informed and identity-affirming approach, I work with clients to bolster their ability to cope and regulate with challenging emotional experiences, difficult life transitions, and self-exploration. I offer an individualized, person-centered, integrative approach to therapy, helping clients to navigate life’s challenges utilizing evidence-based interventions and modalities. Together, we’ll explore your needs, identify your goals for therapy, and create a roadmap for healing and growth.  

My experience in providing individual, family and group services is grounded in promoting resiliency and skill-building while focusing on strengths. As a parent of two adolescents, I know first-hand how difficult it can be to find appropriate support, and how challenging it is to be a young person and also a parent in today’s world. I endeavor to provide a compassionate, non-judgmental space where clients feel seen and heard and where everyone is welcome, and everyone belongs. Ultimately, I consider the therapeutic relationship sacred, and it is an honor to be invited to walk alongside my clients during times of difficulty. I look forward to connecting with you soon, to hear more about how I can be of support.
