Karen Reynolds is a former teacher, coach, mentor, and a mental health thriver! She has worked with teens in a variety of settings from the classroom to the orphanage. Her travels to work with teens have taken her to Russia, Africa, and Haiti, however, she has spent most of her adult life with teens in the school setting. In those 40 plus years Karen has observed the decline in teens both emotionally and mentally. Many classroom students have become challenged to build healthy relationships and manage stress. Establishing a mental health diagnosis is often the road to recovery for teens. Yet, without a change of certain daily patterns, emotional health struggles continue. Karen’s passion continues to help teens grow the healthy habits that foster life-giving relationships and mature coping skills.
