Justtsine Kalas Reeves trained in child and adolescent psychoanalysis at the Anna Freud Centre in London, qualifying in 2003. In London, she worked in the Toddler Service and Parent Infant Project of the Anna Freud Centre and the Adolescent Unit of the Tavistock Clinic. In Washington, DC, she worked for the Reginald S. Lourie Center, Infants and Toddlers Program, and later was the Director of the Jenny Waelder Hall Center for Children – a psychoanalytic nursery school. In 2014, she finished her adult analytic training with the Contemporary Freudian Society. Dr. Kalas Reeves has also been in private practice in Woodley Park since 2004. She earned a BA from the University of Chicago; a MSW from the Silberman School of Social Work, and a DPsych from University College London/Anna Freud Centre. Mark Solms and Mary Target supervised her doctoral research on children's dreams. She has written about toddler development, work with parents of adolescents and young adults, and the updated diagnostic profile. She was a member of the Alliance of Psychoanalytic Schools, and is now a member of the IPA’s Committee on Women and Psychoanalysis (COWAP). At CFS, she is on the Integrated Training Committee (which will hopefully help promote child analytic training), is co-chair of the Faculty Committee, and is a member of the Professional Development and the Recruitment Committees. While a candidate, she chaired the JICC—Joint Institute Candidate’s Committee—a clinical conference put on by candidates of the five psychoanalytic institutes in the DC area.
