Here at HOPE Works, we bring our empowerment model into our therapeutic services. This means that we value the voice of the client first and foremost, and we work with the client to collaborate on a treatment plan that works best for them, valuing their input, goals, interests, and strengths. Having a clinical team with different areas of knowledge, experience, and therapeutic modalities, it is our hope that we have something to offer everyone.

Kristine Reynolds, MSW, LICSW Therapeutic Services Director (she/her)
I received my Masters Degree in Social Work from Colorado State University, and have been working in the mental health field for over 14 years in a variety of states and settings. I have expertise in working with adolescents and adults who have experienced sexaul trauma. My practice also includes the treatment of anxiety, mood disorders, and relationship conflicts, in children, adolescents, and adults. In addition to individual psychotherapy I also facilitates group therapy and work with families and couples. I provide clinical supervision for Social Workers working towards licensure, and social work students completing their field work at H.O.P.E. Works. I am an EMDR trained clinician, and greatly incorporate my knowledge of cognitive behavioral therapies, mindfulness practice into my work. Prior to joining H.O.P.E Works in July of 2015, I worked for the Department of Veterans Affairs in Colorado and New Hampshire, where I fell in love with working with individuals who have experienced trauma. I currently also have a private practice and am affiliated with Otter Creek Associates, and am an Adjunct Instructor in the Education and Human Studies Department at Champlain College.
I accept most insurances.
Lindsay Martin, MSW Therapist (she/her)
My practice is rooted in thoughtful and attentive empathy. I listen deeply to each client’s needs and collaborate with them to build an individualized therapeutic relationship that is safe and inviting to their particular struggles involving sexual violence and mental wellbeing. I recently received a Masters Degree in Social Work from The University of Vermont, and formerly studied at Warren Wilson College in North Carolina. Prior to joining H.O.P.E. Works in Fall 2017, I witnessed and supported the therapeutic journeys of adults, adolescents, and families in various wilderness settings for almost a decade. My intent is to hold a non-judging sanctuary welcome to all identities and backgrounds, where inner strengths and resiliencies can reveal themselves. I believe that profound transformative change is not always prescriptive, and use multiple therapeutic modalities such as creative expression, nature, mindfulness, and narrative practice.
I am able to accept most insurances.
Brenda McGrath MSW Student & Clinical Intern (she/her)
I received my Bachelor’s degree in psychology in 2015, specializing in both clinical and child psychology as well as global cultural studies. I have worked with children and adolescents in many different capacities for over a decade, and in working with this population, I have learned to value the power of healing through humor, laughter, and play. The bulk of my experience working in the mental health field has been with NFI’s Hospital Diversion Program, a short-term inpatient program for adolescents experiencing crisis. In that program I provide emotional support to people experiencing things like trauma, depression, and anxiety, and this is work that I highly value and deeply enjoy. I have experience working with individuals coming from many different countries, cultures, ethnicities, and identities. I strive to create a space that is welcoming, accepting, and free from any judgment. My goal as a therapist is to collaborate with clients to co-create a treatment plan that works best for them, drawing from different modalities and occasionally incorporating practices and coping tools such as mindfulness, yoga, essential oils, and creative exploration dependent on the client’s level of comfort.
