About My Clients

Dr. Rea specializes in working with families and individuals to understand and assist with developmental challenges, stress management, and resilience skills, whatever the context. Her niche practice is working with couples navigating divorce collaboratively and with helping parents during and following divorce to raise their children collaboratively and well. Psychological and psycho-educational testing also are areas of her expertise.

My Background and Approach

Dr. Rea is returning to Charlottesville after graduating from The University of Virginia and co-owning a group practice in Hampton Roads for 30+ years. She is a past-president of the Virginia Academy of Clinical Psychologists and continues actively engaged with the professional state and national Psychological and Collaborative Divorce communities.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I so appreciate the opportunity to help children, youth, and families grow well, with flexibility and resilience to adapt to the challenges of moving through the stresses of life. I believe that there is no shame in “failing” one’s expectation of any aspect of life, because there is learning, growth, and new opportunities in confronting, owning, and moving through, which happens with the support and guidance that therapy can provide.
