Before joining NESCA, Dr. Reinert worked in a variety of clinical settings, including therapeutic schools, residential treatment programs and in community mental health providing individual and group therapy. She has comprehensive training in psychological assessment, conducting testing with children, adolescents, and transitional-aged adults with complex trauma. Dr. Reinert has extensive experience providing intensive in-home family treatment, family outreach and care coordination for adolescents served by the Massachusetts Departments of Mental Health and Children and Families. She provided similar services for children who had been adopted internationally or through the foster care system through a program funded by the New York Office of Children and Family Services.
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 to children, adolescents with complicated learning and psychiatric disabilities and their families.

Dr. Reinert received her doctoral degree from Rivier University in the combined Counseling and School Psychology program. Her 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.
