Welcome to the BetterHelp community!
My name is Reagan Thompson and I'm excited to be with you on this therapeutic journey. I earned my Master's degree in 2003 and am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Mental Health Professional in Nebraska.
I am easy to talk to and am very open and compassionate. I have experience working with individuals, couples, teens, adolescents, LGBTQ+, detainees, and groups. I have had the privilege of working in several types of settings, such as private practice, mental health clinics, schools, hospitals, and detention centers.
I have experience in working with a wide range of mental health issues, such as grief/loss, trauma/PTSD, depression, anxiety, abuse, family conflicts, self-esteem issues, and addictions. Another specialty of mine is in the interpretation of dreams. I believe that many times by analyzing your dreams it helps you gain a deeper understanding of yourself.
My approach to therapy adheres to Client Centered Therapy (also known as Person Centered, Non-Directive, and Rogerian Therapy), Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness Therapy, Trauma Focused, and Motivational Interviewing. I believe the client is the expert and knows more about themselves than anyone else. I will listen to you and assist you in identifying thought patterns that may be holding you back. Together we will work through this and find effective coping skills and techniques to assist you in living your best and most productive life that you deserve.
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, LGBT, Family conflicts, Intimacy-related issues, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Coping with life changes, ADHD, Body Image, Communication Problems, Divorce and Separation, Domestic Violence, Drug and Alcohol Addiction, Family Problems, Forgiveness, Guilt and Shame, Impulsivity, Isolation / Loneliness, Life Purpose, Mood Disorders, Obsessions, Compulsions, and OCD, Panic Disorder and Panic Attacks, Personality Disorders, Post-traumatic Stress, Self-Harm, Self-Love, Sexual Assault and Abuse, Women's Issues, Workplace Issues, Young Adult Issues

She is really kind and does her best to offer solutions, and listens well even if you go off on a rant about something.

Reagan has been a friendly, patient and observant therapist, and she has helped me make important progress in being able to identify and manage "bad" thought patterns to limit the effect they have on my day to day life. I have enjoyed our time working together very much!
