Hello everyone! My name is Reata Collins. I am a recent graduate of Texas Tech University, where I obtained my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology degree and my Master of Social Work degree. I am a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) in both Texas and Maryland.
Throughout my education, I have had the opportunity to work with at-risk youth in the school setting, children and families involved in the child welfare system, and cardiac patients at UMC hospital in Lubbock. In my 4 years of experience as a research assistant at Texas Tech University, I was able to study protective factors in youth who have experienced trauma. This opportunity allowed me to witness the incredible magnitude of human resiliency firsthand.
As your therapist, I hope to support and empower you to achieve the outcomes that you desire for your life.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my fiancé, going to the park with my 3 dogs, and reading nerdy fiction books.
