Dr. Korenna Reynard (PhD)
I have made a life-long practice of studying relationships, communication, and sexuality (both in and out of the classroom.)
After years of working in agencies and teaching masters and doctorate level therapists, I decided to go into private practice. I was tired of the constrictions and regulations that came with agency work and realized that the only way I was going to break free from the 50-minute therapy hours and the pressure to carry case loads of 30-40 clients at a time was to branch out on my own.
Working as an independent therapist & coach has empowered me to delve more deeply into my work and really invest personally in the people that I serve. Over the past few years, I can really say I feel the people who come to me for therapy and/or coaching feel more like friends than clients. And the work we have done together has had as profound effect on me, as it has on them!
I strive to approach all of my sessions with grace, humor, and unconditional love; and to provide an engaging and supportive environment for clients to learn new skills and open to infinite possibilities. Blending my unique interests and areas of expertise, I help individuals and couples increase intimacy, embrace ecstasy, heal wounds, break through old patterns, and bring new passion and vibrancy to their lives…both in the bedroom and beyond!
The Reason I Became A Helping Professional
My parents divorced when I was in middle school. As part of the divorce agreement, my sister and I were required to attend therapy to help us "adjust" to the changes afoot in our lives. Over the course of 5 years we probably saw half-a-dozen different therapists!
There was one particualr psychologist who helped me understand why I was feeling how I was feeling (and how to express those feelings in a way my parents and step parents could relate to.) This woman taught me what needs and boundaries were (when my family seemed to be oblivious to these concepts!) and helped me find the places I could feel sane and powerful when the people around me seemed crazy and out of control.
It struck me that, while many of the other therapists helped me feel better (at least during the time I spent in their office) I never felt like talking to them changed me or my situation in any way. Not until I met Dr. G. I was so grateful for the difference she made in my life, that I decided to become a psychologist with the hope that I, too, could make a profound difference in people's lives.
