Regina started her career as a volunteer crisis counselor, dealing with victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Before returning to school at Grand Canyon University to train as an addiction counselor, her experience and education in early childhood studies at Wilmington Harbor College allowed her to work in social services with children and families as a Court-Appointed Special Advocate (CASA).
Regina has been involved in the counseling field for well over 18 years, working both inpatient and outpatient in drug treatment centers and psychiatric facilities. Regina is a trained Neurolinguistics Practitioner and Clinical Hypnotherapist with an educational background in trauma and addiction from Grand Canyon University. She is currently preparing a doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology at the University of Arizona.
Regina has worked primarily with individuals and families struggling with the co-morbidity of mental illness and addiction for the last 12 years, developing and facilitating psycho-educational recovery groups along with responsibility for continuing staff development and education.
