Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist Philadelphia, PA

Deborah Reeves

I am a psychotherapist in private practice in Philadelphia with over twenty-five years’ experience. I have extensive training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy specifically, because it is most comprehensive in its application and, integral to all the psychotherapies that conceptualize psychic structure and development utilizing foundations drawn from psychodynamic theory.

I have treated adults and adolescents in both brief and long-term psychotherapy and psychoanalytic psychotherapy. I worked for a number of years in both the private and public sectors, gaining a wide experience in different clinical settings.

It was through the dawning of a strong psychoanalytic influence that I gained specific focus in my professional development with additional post graduate training gaining certifications in the field of analytic group psychotherapy and the field of psychoanalysis.

I am a recent past professor (unranked) of twelve years at Drexel University teaching psychodynamic theory, psychotherapeutic technique, assessment and psychodynamic group process.

In addition to my private practice, I continue to be actively established in long-standing professional psychoanalytic groups. And, as an immigrant I take interest in people dealing with cultural difficulties whether displaced by choice or necessity.
