More about me

Licensing: MS, LPC
Years in Practice: 10

Hello, my name is Regina Rivera. I have a Bachelors Degree in Psychology and Sociology and a Masters Degree in Mental Health Counseling. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Virginia. I have almost 10 years of experience providing individual counseling and my theoretical approach is grounded in Person Centered and Cognitive Behavioral techniques. I enjoy working with individuals to increase their quality of life. I pride myself on showing high levels of compassion, empathy and unconditional positive regard. I also feel it is imperative to provide a safe, confidential and supportive space without judgement for clients to explore their needs, wants and emotions. I specialize in treatment for anxiety, depression, self-esteem, grief and loss, and experienced trauma, as well. Counseling is my passion and I enjoy helping others reach their individual and personal goals.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Regina is great and listens well. I feel very supported by her.

M.O.·Jul 02, 2021


Regina’s demeanor overrides all the hesitation one may have about the benefits of continuing therapy. She is interested in adjusting to my goals and has always been naturally invested in viewing reality in a way that complements and provides due credit to my perspective. She is flexible, willing to expand, possesses phenomenal cognitive empathy, and offers all the insight and support that she is capable of offering. Regina allows a person to become the best version of themselves without shame, blame, or counterproductive categorization that contradicts individual experience. She creates an environment where trying to overcome weaknesses is not formidable, because her positive reinforcement creates a space where a person can develop the healthy self-confidence that allows for deeper self-critique and self-reflection.

I have been on BetterHelp for almost a month now and Regina has been very kind and helpful. I am so glad that I have someone to talk to now and can reach out to her. What has been rewarding for me is that the topics we talk about I am able to reflect and look back at things in a different light which helps me put closure on some things or have a feeling of contentment. I look forward to continuing working with her.

Regina has been here for me when I've had such high anxiety. Sending her a message in the midst of my feelings allows me to really get them out and not keep anything bottled in. I've become much more relaxed in my life as a result.
