Michele M. Reed, M.S.W.
I work with individual adults, couples and adolescents. I am also am available for clinical supervision.My thinking is based on psychodynamic/psychoanalytic theory, but I also draw from other schools of thought when appropriate to the situation. I listen carefully and work with my clients to develop an understanding of what has led them to unsatisfying feelings, thoughts or behaviors and what their hopes are for the future. Respecting the need for confidentiality, empathy, honesty and humor, we explore conscious and unconscious thoughts/feelings and identify how significant past experiences have shaped their present life.
Adults: A space is provided for a person to think about him/herself from several angles, with the goal of getting to know one's self better, or in a different way than before. We explore a variety of thoughts and feelings as well as some patterns that may have developed into long standing problems. The past, present and future are all in the mix.
Couples: The emphasis is on communicating in ways that feel safe. There is a focus on balancing individual needs and the relationship needs, with efforts to shift interactions away from stuck patterns of alienation and conflict, towards a vitality of connection, with empathy, acceptance and intimacy.
