Mickey  Reed
(she/her)

Spiritual Director, Retreat and Workshop Leader

Mickey has honed deep listening skills in her professional careers as a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Certified Occupational Therapist, and a Professor of Occupational Therapy. She maintains that the most important offering to all her careers has been being able to be actively and deeply present for others.

 In addition to holding a B.S.  in Creative Therapeutic Environments, and Master’s degrees in both Counseling and Occupational Therapy, she is  a graduate  of The Listening Place  Spiritual Direction Program  established by S.r Johanna Walsh F.C.J. and directed by the late Mary Grace McCoy of Durham, North Carolina.

Mickey frequently leads workshops and retreats focusing on a variety of topics centering around soulful living and spiritual practices in everyday life. She particularly enjoys walking with people as they explore  their own soul journey through the arts and nature.

Mickey’s own spiritual formation began in the 1980’s when she spent time discerning a religious vocation with the Sisters of Bon Secours of Baltimore, Maryland. Her relationship with the community has evolved through the years and she is currently part of the Sisters Associate program.  Their guiding mission to “Be Good Help to those in need”  is foundational to her current ministries  in food justice ,  community building, spiritual direction and  retreat work.

Mickey trained with Sister Joyce Rupp O.S.M. and is a designated  facilitator of Boundless Compassion Workshops .

 She  is   also   certified  as a  SoulCollage© facilitator and regularly leads sessions  for small groups  using this  Jungian based  method of exploring inner wisdom  as the basis for self reflection, prayer  and journaling.
