Dan Reed, PhD, LPC

Assistant Trainer for the IFS Institute

Approved IFS Clinical Consultant

Certified IFS Therapist

I believe in what works. A lifetime of exploring the body, movement, and perception combined with training in engineering and construction leads me to look at people holistically and systematically. I believe in the power of being with the present moment and how it shows up in our bodies. Although I am idealistic, I encourage you to continually notice evidence in the here and now as well as in your day to day life. What happens or fails to happen in your life tells us how we're doing.


Whether teaching, consulting, or doing therapy, I support you in noticing and experiencing differences in the office so that you can have new ways to test things for yourself in your world. 


I am a body-centered psychotherapist. Since 2015, I have traveled the country assisting in internal family systems (IFS) trainings. I am currently an assistant trainer for the IFS Institute, and am also an approved IFS clinical consultant as well as a certified IFS therapist. I love doing consultation for IFS therapists, consultation of consultation to support IFS consultants, and supporting executives and leaders of all kinds in co-creating a space where they don't have to pretend to have all the answers and know all of the things.

I hold a PhD in counselor education & supervision specializing in IFS-informed supervision, body-centered psychotherapy, and neurofeedback. My research and writing have focused on supervision of therapists and how IFS can inform the supervision experience. I am also a father and a former San Antonio high school teacher.
