Dr. Reinkraut is a licensed psychologist/health service provider who has done psychotherapy with a wide range of persons across the lifespan. Dr. Reinkraut has an abiding interest in the obligations and challenges of the role of counselor educators as gate-keepers to the profession of mental health counseling. “My belief is that theories inform but relationships heal. A challenge of each therapeutic relationship is developing a relational engagement that responds to the particular needs of the particular client."
Dr. Reinkraut’s recent scholarly interests focus on identity as a narrative construction that emerges from within a cultural context and the impact of moral positionality on a therapist’s use of self.
