Sarah Reyes, Psy.D., LCP
I completed my doctoral studies and training in Chicago, earning my Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology from Wheaton College. While in Illinois, I worked in a variety of clinical settings, including college counseling, private practice, and community mental health. In 2014, I moved to Harrisonburg, Virginia, to complete my doctoral internship at James Madison University with an emphasis in the treatment of sexual trauma. Most recently, I relocated to the Richmond area to receive post-doctoral training at Virginia Commonwealth University, where I focused on providing clinical services to graduate and professional students.
I work with a broad range of psychological concerns, and my areas of specific expertise include the treatment of depression, anxiety, interpersonal and relationship concerns, family of origin issues, and trauma and PTSD. Although I tailor my approach to each individual and their unique goals, I tend to view client concerns through an interpersonal lens, and work to create an open, warm therapeutic environment in which we can explore both current and past relational dynamics and their impact on current functioning. I seek to develop a collaborative and trusting relationship with my clients in which they can gradually understand themselves more fully, cope with current difficulties more effectively, and reach their goals for treatment.
A lifelong Army brat, I love traveling, and frequently find myself craving a new adventure. Since relocating to the Richmond area, my husband and I have enjoyed exploring, trying new restaurants, and working on our “fixer upper.” We also recently welcomed our first baby, and are loving learning to juggle the chaos of life with an infant, two dogs, and a cat.
