Hayley Reed, LCSW
Licensed Clinical Social Worker
The therapy I offer is a collaborative partnership based in curiosity, respect, and empathy. I believe in empowering, honoring, and celebrating your authentic self. With my guidance we will explore the intersecting layers of your identity to understand how to make positive, healthy changes that will allow you to achieve your goals.
I work with children, adolescents, families, and couples to understand their feelings, why these feelings have surfaced, and how to cope. My clients often begin therapy as they need support managing mood symptoms or disorders (anxiety, depression), attention difficulties, gender/sexuality concerns, family dynamics, life transitions and events, marital and premarital conflict, trauma, peer relationships, and school issues.
I am a trained psychotherapist and have completed postgraduate training in couples and family therapy at Ackerman Institute for the Family. My approach involves an integrated style that blends elements of psychoanalysis, family systems therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), play therapy, Parent Management Training, and mindfulness to assist you through life’s difficulties. My style is both caring and personalized which encourages self-reflection and self-actualization.
In our time together my hope is we will come to understand how your relationship with your feelings has influenced your behaviors. We are all a collection of our experiences and therapy can help you unpack anything that might have previously felt too heavy to lift or sort through on your own. I employ a strength-based approach to help individuals and families navigate the stress, transitions, and challenges they are confronted with. Starting therapy can be a big step but when we take time to care for ourselves we are able to build gratifying relationships with others and focus on personal growth.
