I am a country girl with a big heart; two qualities that have served me well as a mental health/substance abuse (MH/SA) professional. I have 12 years of experience working in the mental health field. I am also licensed as an addiction specialist. I first went to college as a math major, but after working with at-risk adolescents in group homes my purpose became clear to me; I am a social worker at heart. I earned my BSW from NCSU and my MSW from UNC-Chapel Hill.
I enjoy working with adolescents and adults, couples, and families with diverse backgrounds and experiences, using a collaborative approach. Together, WE identify your goals, then WE identify steps that will help you reach those goals. I have worked with clients with a wide range of challenges including depression, anxiety, trauma, substance use/addiction, and relationship/attachment issues, to name a few. Therapy modalities I use include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Therapy, Family Systems Therapy, and Mindfulness.
It is important that my clients understand that they have a voice when they work with me. I believe that despite your challenges, you know what is best for you. My job is to offer ideas and strategies to help you overcome barriers that impact your ability to have a fulfilling life. As a therapist, it is my hope that our work together encourages you to stretch towards your dream, think bigger, go further, be committed, grow, and achieve more than you dared to imagine.
Take that first step, by contacting me. I am excited to get to know you so we can do some great work TOGETHER!

I have been seeing Regenia for over a year now and with her help I have made a lot of progress towards my goals that led me to start therapy. She is easy to talk to, funny, warm, and most importantly invested in how I am doing. She asks good questions that help me think more critically about my own thoughts, feelings, and reactions. She has been a great source of support for me.
