Dr. Reynolds is a faculty member at Johns Hopkins in the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. She serves as the primary behavioral consultant within the Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Inpatient and Day Hospital services. She conducts psychological evaluations and provides behavioral and cognitive-behavioral treatments. Broadly, her research and clinical interests focus on the development and maintenance of health risk behavior among children and adolescents. This interest has manifested in two lines of work.  The first is focused on the social-contextual (e.g., peer influence) and self-regulatory (e.g., impulsivity, distress tolerance, emotional dysregulation) factors associated with the development and maintenance of these health risk behaviors and involves more basic processes/experimental research. The second area of interest centers more broadly on the evaluation of mental health services; particularly the dissemination and implementation of evidence-based psychological treatments and assessment.  Dr. Reynolds received her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from University of Maryland, College Park. She completed her predoctoral internship training at Alpert Medical School of Brown University Clinical Psychology Training Consortium. more
