PsyD, LP - Founder

Dr. Reed is a licensed psychologist and opened the doors of RPS in 2011. Prior to her RPS venture, she spent many years “behind bars” working in forensic settings including the State Hospital in St. Peter, MN and in State and Federal Prisons. At this time, her caseload is minimal in order for her to focus on building her three clinics. Dr. Reed truly enjoys business ownership and entrepreneurial pursuits. That said, her caseload is never quite closed due to her passion regarding patient care, especially her work with teens and seasoned adults.
