Psychotherapy for times of profound personal change.


Dr. Parker Rea, PsyD, is a Licensed Psychologist-Doctorate whose practice supports people managing a wide range of mental health issues. Within her general practice, she maintains sub-specialities in women’s reproductive mental health and eating disorders. Dr. Rea’s integrative style balances practical support with the development of greater insight into the roots of client suffering. Tailoring each treatment to the individual person, she draws from the relational and cognitive-behavioral traditions. Her evidenced-based approach emphasizes the role of self-reflection and mindfulness in overall well-being.



Dr. Rea’s psychotherapy practice is the culmination of two decades of graduate training and experience as an educator and clinical psychologist.
