Are shame and embarrassment over a family member’s alcohol or drug use causing problems in your life? Are you tired of adapting? Are you frustrated and don’t know were to turn?
As a dually licensed clinician, Patsy Reed holds a Master of Arts degree in Addiction Studies from Hazelden Graduate School of Addiction Studies. Her ambition is to assist families in coping with and healing from the impact of addiction. She is aware that it is never easy to bring up the subject of chemical use with a family member, and in most cases, the person with the problem will not be the one to initiate this conversation.
Patsy educates her clients and helps them recognize that addiction is a family disease that affects a family on every level: including emotional, psychological, financial, and social. And, when left untreated, it impacts the stability of the home, the family’s unity, familial relationships and overall family dynamics.
As a therapist, Patsy connects with her clients quickly by understanding where they are emotionally and working together to get them where they want to be. Patsy believes people have the innate strength and ability to change. Her passion is helping others improve their lives, relationships, and find greater fulfillment and purpose.
Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her family and children. Her hobbies include yoga, gardening, golf, walking, and do-it-yourself projects.
