At SMR Counseling Services, we get your mental health in shape. We work one-on-one with clients acting as "personal mental health trainers" which allows us to respond to the unique needs of each individual.

Our goal is to help you uncover your true potential in order to lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

If you're looking for a "personal mental health trainer" to provide extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, we look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
My name is Dr. Shauna Moore Reynolds and I am the co-founder and Executive Director of SMR Counseling Services. With the guidance and support of my husband Douglas, I created SMR Counseling Services to serve the needs of those who desire professional therapy outside traditional appointment hours and settings. We meet these needs by offering appointments late evenings, Saturday, Sunday, by phone, online and home visits.

I began my career in Houston, Texas in 1996 working with individuals and families in crisis. I loved my position so much that I dedicated myself to obtaining the education and training necessary to one day open a counseling office that meets the needs of the community. To prepare, I obtained my bachelors in Social Science, my master's in Behavioral Science, and my doctorate in Counseling. In almost 20 years in the area of counseling, I have attended over 100 trainings, seminars, and conferences to stay on top of new techniques and trends in counseling.

I am an interactive, solution-focused therapist and my therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. With compassion and understanding I provide a personalized approach tailored to help each individual, couple, or family build on their strengths and attain the growth they are committed to accomplishing. I am a Christian, and a member of The Peoples Community Baptist Church in Silver Spring, Maryland. I am happily married with a teenage daughter. I enjoy spending time with family, traveling, reading, and most of all, helping others.
