Betty Reynolds About Me

About Me


I earned my Bachelor’s degree at the University of North Florida in 1999 in Jacksonville, Florida, where I majored in Psychology and minored in English. After I earned that degree, I moved to beautiful magical North Carolina and earned by master’s degree in 2003 through Liberty University. My then husband and I moved back to Florida after 10 years in North Carolina. We divorced and I experienced a spiritual worldview shift. I have always been a spiritual person. I did a 180 about face and decided to become a yoga teacher. I completed Yoga Teacher Training in 2013. At that same time, I was “radicalized” in a way. I worked briefly with male youth in a correctional facility. My eyes were opened. I became aware of systemic racism. Living in South Florida exposed me to ethnic, sexual, and neuro diversity. I went to work for Tykes & Teens, Inc. where I experienced healing, safely, and training in a way I never had before. It was there I was EMDR and Infant Mental Health trained. Today, I’m working hard on becoming a licensed mental health counselor in Florida.
