Leslie Reed, LCSW-R, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Woodbury
My psychotherapy practice is informed by formal training in contemplative and psychodynamic therapies, valuing health and wellness. My framework is a natural outcome of my own ongoing therapeutic work and developing spiritual practice, allowing me to more fluently move between the spiritual language of love and compassion and the psychological language of emotional distress and resiliency. The focus is on the here and now, understanding that your early developmental experiences affect your present feelings, mood, and behavior, often masking your natural capacity for well-being. Those experiencing life changes, challenges, transitions, such as loss and grief, anxiety, depression, trauma, divorce, work-related issues would benefit.
Services: Individual, Couples, Family Therapy Those experiencing challenging life events who wish to restore a wholeness and balance that is more life affirming. Clinical Supervision: Participants will be introduced to a Reflective Practice Model, the structure within which clinical practice is best provided and nurtured; increasing one's capacity for self observation.
Working contemplatively, we uncover these patterns of behavior and beliefs that interfere with personal and professional growth, making room for continuous self-reflection, deepening awareness, and the development of stronger, more sustaining connections. A successful therapeutic experience ensures a genuine collaboration between client and therapist where new understanding can emerge.
