John Rowe-Stokes (He/Him)
Therapist, Licensed Clinical Social Worker
I offer specialized counseling to serve young adults and adults coping with trauma, stress, anxiety, depression, sexual violence, and those experiencing major life changes.
I utilize a telehealth modality for counseling so that anyone in Colorado can have access to a specialist from the convenience of their own space.

“I looked forward to seeing John each week because I always came away with a new skill to manage the
stress and anxiety that I face every day at work and at home. I never imagined that I would learn so much about
my upbringing, my approach to relationships, and how anxiety was affecting me physically. I
feel like I have a good handle on stress and anxiety now. I know I have come away with a better understanding of

It is helpful to know your counselor’s background in order to begin developing a strong relationship. I began my career in graduate studies at the University of Denver’s Four Corners Program which specializes in serving rural and tribal communities and provides training in advanced clinical practices.
Following my years as a mountain and whitewater guide I began my work providing mental health interventions in integrated healthcare centers, jails, crises centers, and on the ground in the community. I then became an outpatient therapist serving individuals with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders.
I transitioned into wilderness therapy beginning as a wilderness therapy guide before moving into a position as a wilderness therapist working within a residential treatment center. I also oversaw the wilderness therapy program in a long-term residential care facility and acted as an intake coordinator, assessment provider, and primary family therapist.
After my years as a mental health and substance use therapist I began to specialize in the treatment of trauma disorders. I became an EMDR trained therapist and began my work serving survivors of crime, sexual violence, and trafficking.
I have since held roles a trainer, recruiter, and finally as a private practice clinician. My recent projects have involved co-founding a nonprofit supporting the wellness of the hospitality industry, consulting for a mindful virtual reality startup, and assisting in the development of a wilderness therapy and residential treatment center.
