Dr. Reynolds specializes in i-therapy™ and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). She combines the therapeutic models with resiliency training to decrease current difficulties and prevent future problems from developing. She enjoys working with adults, adolescents, children, and families in individual, group, and family sessions.

Dr. Reynolds believes strongly that teaching children positive mental health skills and habits early in development, can prevent or decrease more serious mental health difficulties later in life. Some of these skill areas include: Mindfulness, Developing Grit, Social Connectedness, Gratitude, Kindness, Growth Mindset, Problem-Solving Strategies, and Effective Communication. She teaches children strategies to better manage their emotions, increase cognitive flexibility, and bounce back faster after upsetting events. Dr. Reynolds feels that incorporating parents into their children’s treatment is absolutely essential and facilitates them teaching their parents newly acquired skills to practice at home together. This approach leads to more rapid gains and teaches the child to become his or her own therapist.

Some specialized areas of interest include: Positive Parenting, Creating a Meaningful Life, Putting Values into Action, Adding More Fun to Family Time, and Supporting Social and Emotional Needs of Gifted Children.
