Dr. Reed believes that every individual has a story unique to them. These stories and experiences are individual, providing context for our current states of being and the ways in which we view ourselves and the world around us. Therapeutic work begins with a foundation of trust and respect, and Dr. Reed is warm, personable and seeks to foster a collaborative and relational approach with her clients.
She endeavors to listen and to understand a person’s lived experiences, enabling them to find meaning and incorporate change to live a more fulfilling life. By working with clients to give voice to their experiences, therapy serves as a space where understanding and growth can take place. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, work-related stressors, interpersonal issues, trauma, or are just having a difficult time, she will work together with you to bring healing and support.
Dr. Reed specializes in treating children, adolescents, adults, and families, as well as providing psychological and forensic (e.g. court-ordered or for those involved in the legal system) assessments. She has particular interest and experience working with complex trauma, survivors of childhood abuse, self-esteem issues, adjustment difficulties, depression, anxiety, sexual identity, chronic mental illness, and challenging interpersonal dynamics. She received both a Master and Doctoral degree in Clinical Forensic Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology in Chicago, Illinois.
