Why Dr. Christy Reeder Became A Counselor
Throughout my professional training and personal experiences, my belief in the healing power of relationships has been confirmed time and again. It’s my life’s passion to help people reach their full potential by becoming more connected to themselves and others. The seeds of becoming a counselor were planted in me during my early adolescence when I realized that I loved learning the stories of other people’s lives. During my college years I learned that my natural curiosity had the potential to allow to me join with others in their journey toward healing.
