Jen Randall Reyes has been working with at-risk teens and adolescents for 15 years. In that time, her therapeutic career has evolved into a specialization in facilitating posttraumatic growth using evidence-based counseling approaches such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). She has filled every imaginable staff role in wilderness therapy settings, therapeutic boarding schools, and young adult transitional living facilities. Working in experiential education and adventure therapy settings eventually led to a new goal of supporting other counselors in training on the journey to find their therapeutic niche. Jen loves teaching, supervision, research, and counseling equally. Yet, social justice and advocacy work remind her consistently why counseling matters in a modern world. Counseling is not simply reducing symptoms, it is instead a focus on sustaining lasting and valuable change that promotes wellness. She is a storyteller by birth, having grown up in the Appalachian Mountains. Jen seeks to share narrative in ways that inspire her students, supervisees, and clients to practice self-care in order to be active participants rather than standing on the sidelines of their own lives. While she enjoys any chance to be outside in the company of happy people, her favorite activity is laughing.
