Regina Walterman, AMFT
- Associate Marriage & Family Therapist
Regina is an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist #115712 and art therapist intern ATR-P, working under the supervision of Gwen Chiaramonte, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker #10937, and Amy Backos, a Licensed Psychologist #24943 and Registered Art Therapist #99191 for completion of her supervised MFT and art therapy hours.
Regina’s therapeutic passion resides working with children and teens, as she believes complete therapeutic healing is possible at any age, but especially at a young age when children and teens thinking is so malleable to compassionate and empathic coping skills appropriately modeled to them, and distress tolerance taught to face life’s many challenges and to further development. Regina has also had the opportunity to work with children and adolescents of all ages in various job sectors not only as a therapist (AMFT) and art therapist (ATR-P), but also as a previous nanny for 15 years, preschool teacher, gymnastics instructor, group home counselor, court appointed special advocate (CASA) volunteer for a traumatized youth for 3 years, nanny for autistic children, and she also performed art therapy research with homeless transitional youth.
Regina strongly believes that every child, teen, and family is different, and one modality of therapy may work for one child, teen, or family, while not for another. Utilizing multiple modalities of therapy, while incorporating all of Regina’s previous work experiences allows her to be an effective therapist, active listener and communicator, and empathetically meet her clients where they are at by attuning to their multifaceted needs for connection, awareness, processing, problem solving, change, growth, discovery, healing, and wellbeing.
Regina offers in person and Telehealth therapy to clients in our Campbell and San Francisco offices. She works Sunday-Thursday, and she has day and evening appointments available to make it convenient for parents, teens, and children to attend.
