    Approach to Therapy:

    Feminist Theory within the clinical setting describes an inclusion of consideration for social, political, religious, intersectional, and other external influences on psychological functioning and understanding of self. This approach expands classical approaches explaining the origins of psychological distress and pathologies. Rogerian denotes use of Person-Centered therapy and uses the theories of Carl Rogers, a mid-century humanistic psychologist. According to Rogers, integration of the whole self through the process of self-discovery and features inherent to the therapeutic relationship.

    Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a 3rd wave of Cognitive Behavorial Therapy (CBT) which aims to increase one’s psychological flexibility given the inherent suffering and distress that we all face. ACT draws upon a variety of earlier psychotherapy frameworks to, among other things, consider accommodations for neurodivergence, chronic mental illness, and other issues while pinpointing succinct ways to engage more with what matters most, as defined by each individual.

    Academic Background:

    Before graduating with a Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling from Webster University, Regan received her Bachelor of Arts at Smith College where she studied Economics and Government. Between these two degrees, Regan worked within the restaurant and hospitality industry in Boston and St. Louis.
