Dr. Melinda J. Reinicke, Psychologist x102
As a psychologist who is a Christian I have the sacred privilege of walking beside people as they find God’s healing. Together we will explore practical solutions for the dilemmas you face. My sessions include inner healing prayer, EMDR for past trauma, breathing relaxation, and encouragement in finding what works for you.
I am co-director of RCA Counseling with my husband Aaron J. Reinicke, LMFT. We have five children and my elderly mom who has dementia lives with us as well.
Parables for Personal Growth
My book Parables for Personal Growth deals with a variety of life issues for adults through parables, journaling and experiential exercises. In addition to the print version, it will be available in a new Kindle version on Amazon this coming year.
Parables Half Day Retreats
For just one morning or afternoon Parables retreats are mini-immersions into spiritual and emotional exploration.
I especially enjoy helping people break through distorted perceptions of God to discover who He really is. If our parents were unloving or abusive those overlays might be placed onto God and onto our own view of who we are. Unresolved trauma also makes it difficult to trust God now when He didn’t protect us in the past. If we don’t blame God we might blame ourselves in ways that don’t really belong to us. Or perhaps we need to forgive ourselves for some poor choices in the past. Forgiving ourselves or forgiving others is not easy, but it is freeing. Lke the blind man in Mark 8:22-25 God calls us to walk with Him and discover His healing presence. Please see upcoming workshops for the next scheduled retreat.
I speak frequently to women’s groups and do marital workshops with my husband, Aaron. Our presentations encourage you with Biblical strategies, professional insights, and personal stories from our lives.
Education & Professional Associations
I graduated from San Diego State University with a BA in Psychology Highest Honors before completing my MA and Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at Rosemead, Biola University. I am a clinical member of the American Association for Marriage & Family Therapy and The California Psychological Association. I have Level II Training in EMDR for trauma resolution.
I am currently scheduling fewer appointments and less speaking engagements to complete some writing projects. If I don’t have an opening to schedule with you, I know God has just the right therapist for you. I’ve had the privilege of mentoring many of our therapists and know they can walk with you in the same way that I would (maybe even better). Please call so we can connect you with the best therapist for your needs.
