Reagan joins GE Family Services as a Clinical Counseling Intern from Colorado Christian University to work with children and teens who have experienced trauma and abuse. She is passionate about working with children who have high ACEs (adverse childhood experiences) and wants to help these children experience and gain more resilience. Reagan is also interested in working with couples and hopes to help promote healthy families by building healthy relationships between parents and potential parents.
Reagan Manolas lives in Chugiak, Alaska, with her husband of 17 years and their four children. She loves camping, being on an adventure, and dabbling in various art mediums.
Reagan has enjoyed working with teens and parents for over twenty years in youth group and school settings. Her experience with adoption, youth life-skills development, and adulthood preparation, has empowered many young adults.
Reagan has experience working with teens and adults who have experienced trauma and the fallout from trauma. Notably, she worked as a disaster relief coordinator with FEMA, SBA, and ACF Church for the community of Eagle River after the earthquake in 2018 where she was “boots on the ground” assisting with the devastation experienced in that area.
Reagan is passionate about marriages and walking with couples to a connected and thriving relationship. She believes that a healthy partnership and marriage is the heart of a healthy family. She is on the Youth for Christ Alaska board and is passionate as she spearheads their work in rural Alaska.
Reagan is inner healing prayer trained and has basic experience with art therapy, play therapy, and cognitive behavior therapy. She will be a Brainspotting practitioner in early September, and will work towards certification through continued learning and consultation.
Reagan believes each person’s journey is unique and needs a person-centered integrated approach to developing their system of care. She is a skilled listener, has compassion and unconditional positive regard, looks through the symptoms to the roots, and encourages and empowers clients in their journey.
