Angela Reedy

Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

Thank you for being open to the possibilities of what therapy might do, for acknowledging that part of you that feels like something needs to change, and for taking the time to learn a bit about me. Therapy is not one size fits all, so it’s important to do what you’re doing now… to see if I feel like a good fit for you. I can say this because I’ve been on your side of the screen… trying to find someone who I thought or felt would understand me. My hope is that you will find that too, whether it’s with me or someone else.

25 years ago I began my career as a medical assistant and a teacher. After 8 years, I then enlisted in the US Navy, where I served as a first responder and was part of the regional Sexual Assault Victims Intervention team. For a period of time, I lived in Japan with kids in tow, and have a deep understanding of the effects of betrayal, infidelity, and cross addictions. I’ve worked as a Hospice Spiritual Care and Bereavement Coordinator, and as a counselor at several crisis houses, transitional living centers, and nonprofit agencies that offered therapeutic services.

Suffice to say, I have experience working with sexual assault, complex PTSD, combat and moral injury, addictions, grief, families, and a full spectrum of mental health challenges. But the areas of complex trauma, grief/loss, couples counseling and addictions are where my heart lies.

While I’ve just given you a few things that I bring to the table… as I mentioned before, it all begins with you deciding what’s best for you… and, if you can see yourself pulling up a chair next to me.

What Makes Me Credible:

I have a passion for coming alongside others. I believe it’s just a part of my DNA as a human being. I specialize in trauma… the “big T’s” and the little ones. I am trained and working toward EMDR certification, am Internal Family Systems (IFS) informed, and work from an attachment theory lens (all therapy jargon I can explain later). I also specialize in working with couples, utilizing Gottman and other modalities.
