About me

My experiences as a licensed Master Degree Social Worker, the State of Alabama, span over a period of 30 years. During that time I have been involved in therapeutic counseling and supportive services for families, children, and individual adults in crises. My therapeutic experiences include working with clients who felt loneliness because of confinement or social isolation, domestic abuses in family life, life adjustment problems, suicidal tendencies, depression, stress, anxiety, and lack of motivation. I approach these problems using client centered methods, cognitive behavior therapy or talk therapy, motivational therapies, and empathy. Self exploration and goal orientation are used to guide my clients toward solutions to their problems.

Specialties: Client Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational interviewing, Solution focused Therapy, Aging or Geriatric Issues , and Family problems involving neglect and domestic abuse.
My hours are from 9am -4pm, Mon, Wed, Thurs, and Fri. I am off on Tues, weekends, and major holidays. I am available for scheduled video, phone, and chat sessions. I do messaging whenever I am able to respond. You may schedule yourself or I can schedule you within 24 hours. I require a 24 hour notice for cancelled sessions. I understand if there is an emergency or unexpected event. Before we can start, please review and complete the Informed Consent Information Form in order to protect your confidentiality.

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Regina Nelson Sankey. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

I love that she works with my schedule. If I cannot do a video call she provides alternative ways for us to communicate. She is very responsive and provides me with tools that need to improve my mental health.

Amazing person, very knowledgable, listens, did not shame me or make me feel strange based on my lifestyle choices, instead embraced me and tried to help me use what I have to my full advantage. Checked in on me when I wasn't as active, show a sense of care and support. Worth every single penny. Wonderful person that will help tons of people. I am happy I was paired with Regina, she made great suggestions that impacted my life in a positive way. :)

My counselor was consistent with her outreach and very empathetic for the issues that I was facing. She was so kind to offer additional options when I was dealing with a roadblock regarding my continued therapy.

She is just wonderful. Sometimes I don't message back because life is busy and she always sends me another message makes me feel thought of and cared for. Her words are so encouraging

I feel that Regina had a pretty good grasp on the things I needed to work on and was able to offer recommendations of how I could effectively move forward and was very affirming.
