If you can find someone to talk to, it can help you grow in many ways." - Stephanie Mills
I have provided psychotherapy services to children, teenagers, and adults for over 30 years throughout the Bay Area. These services were offered in education and residential settings, mental health clinics and in homes. I have worked with pregnant families, infants and toddlers, parents of teens, and single parents. I have counseled many on healing childhood abuse and trauma, forming an identity, managing grief and loss and infant parent bonding. Recently, I have been helping youth learn how to manage stress and adults explore the pain of discrimination.
My passion is to help my clients become self-aware, challenge limiting beliefs, solve problems, and heal childhood wounds. I want people to feel connected positively to themselves and to others.
I use a Solution Focused Therapy among others, with an emphasis on cognitive awareness, skill development and shifting perspectives. I enjoy using art, sand play, nature, mindfulness, and humor when possible which often helps one access their inner spirit and authentic self.
Colleague Support Statement
Regina is one of the most skilled and compassionate therapists I have ever met. She has a unique talent for establishing rapport with a diverse set of clients from all walks of life, earning their trust even when they have trusted no one for years. Under her care, clients find the courage to face their innermost demons and silence their negative self-talk, and she teaches them the tools to overcome both. Regina is able to help clients come to see insights that many therapist miss and this helps with growth, change and finding joy. Regina communication skills are excellent, and she teaches many new methods of communicating that have opened doors with loved ones that were previously closed and taught how to bring calm to volatile situations almost instantly.
For anyone looking to realize their potential and gain peace of mind where there has been strife, depression, or hopelessness, I recommend Regina without hesitation.”
