Dr. Reinert conducts neuropsychological and psychological (projective) assessment of children and adolescents in the Londonderry, New Hampshire and Newton, Massachusetts offices. She is passionate about providing comprehensive and individualized assessment for children, adolescents, and transitional-aged adults, particularly individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Intellectual Disability, gender dysphoria, anxiety, depression, and complex learning challenges.
Dr. Reinert graduated from Suffolk University with a bachelor of science degree in Personality Psychology and subsequently obtained a master of science degree in Mental Health Counseling from Long Island University. Dr. Reinert began her clinical work with children, adolescents, and their families in 2005 providing individual, group, and family therapy for those who had been adopted internationally or through the foster care system in a program funded by the New York Office of Children and Family Services.
After returning to Massachusetts and prior to entering doctoral studies, Dr. Reinert was a licensed mental health counselor who worked in a private therapeutic school setting conducting individual, group, and in-home family therapy with children and adolescents contending with significant developmental, learning, and co-occurring psychiatric disorders as well as liaising with school districts, collateral providers, and families. Dr. Reinert also taught modified health and sexual health curriculum for transitional aged young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder, learning and Intellectual disabilities, and global/pervasive developmental issues.
Dr. Reinert earned her doctorate in counseling and school psychology from Rivier University. As part of her clinical training, she completed practicum work at Franciscan Children’s in the Community-Based Acute Treatment (CBAT), an intensive, short-term acute residential unit, as well as conducted psychological evaluations with children and adolescents with complex trauma at Pine Haven Boys Center. Her pre-doctoral work focused on psychological assessment, individual, group, and family work in a community mental health setting. In addition, she provided intensive in-home family treatment, family outreach and care coordination for adolescents served by the Massachusetts Departments of Mental Health and Children and Families.
Dr. Reinert’s dissertation research explored the impact special education staff stress and coping styles have on their perception of problematic student behavior and the use of exclusionary discipline contributing to the school-to-prison pipeline. Dr. Reinert is actively researching the intersectionality of Autism Spectrum Disorder and Gender Dysphoria, an emerging area of clinical interest.
