Maura Reagan

Maura Reagan

Primary Therapist

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate in the state of Washington, as well as a registered Dance/Movement Therapist.

Originally from the Midwest, I attended Beloit College in Wisconsin as a double major in Dance and Psychology. Quickly realizing the healing impact of both these disciplines, I went on to Columbia College Chicago to pursue a Master’s in Dance/Movement Therapy and Counseling; one of seven schools in the country to offer this degree at the time! I find the intersection between somatic practices and mental health/well-being to be essential and am passionate about the psychotherapeutic use of movement to assist clients in expanding their connection and understanding of themselves; ultimately deepening the integration and embodiment of emotions, cognition, and social processes. I have had the pleasure of working with a diverse population of clients including those managing traumatic brain injury, domestic violence, chronic mental health diagnoses such as schizophrenia, mood disorder, personality disorder, and addiction.

In an increasingly complex world, it is easy to be connected virtually, but more and more difficult to meet our primal human need for love and connection through community and self-acceptance. I believe, more than ever, that we have a societal need to repair our relationship with our bodies, re-discover our physical communities and allow ourselves to be witnessed in our own experience of emotion, creativity, and somatic wisdom. I constantly find myself coming back to my own practice of dance and movement as I negotiate balance in these relationships.

In addition to her license as a dietitian, Mimosa has been trained in Motivational Interviewing (MI), is a Be Body Positive Facilitator, and is currently working toward certification as a CEDRD and undergoing training in Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy.

  • I was sent to [Center for Discovery], an all women's eating disorder treatment facility, and I was terrified to go. I was told I would be there for a month and would return home after that. I ended staying there for almost 3 months, and I can honestly say I am beyond thankful for my time there. I learned so much and they helped me find myself and get over my traumas and learn to cope with issues that I was having. All the staff was super helpful and had my best interest at heart. I may have not liked all of them, but I knew they wanted what was best for me. Even after my insurance run out, the therapist I was working with arranged for me to go to another center to continue my treatment because I was not ready to come home. I highly recommend getting help with Center for Discovery. They truly care!

  • I was at [Center for Discovery] for 6 weeks. I'm from Ohio and being so far away from home was hard. The staff made me feel super comfortable and cared for, making my stay much more manageable. The program was very individualized. They worked hard to make sure my specific needs were met and that my specific behaviors were addressed. This is a top notch facility with incredibly caring staff. Not only were the house staff wonderful, but everyone from admissions to the medical director worked hard to make sure I knew what was going on. This is a wonderful company who are true to what they say. They gave me my life back. I'm someone who has been in and out of treatment for my eating disorder and this program was by far the best. I feel so optimistic about my future. The progress I made there was life changing and I will be forever grateful. I recommend this program to anyone who is serious, willing, and ready to get better.

  • I was surprised by my parents with the option of going to get help for my eating disorder and overall unhealthy lifestyle. I so badly wanted to get help, but was too ashamed. After talking to my mom I agreed to at least talk to someone from Center for Discoveryabout what program I would be in and what it would be like. The gal was super helpful, kind, and did not make me feel like I was the only person who suffered from what I did. She was very patient with me and overall helped out our family with the process of insurance and costs and what not. As for the actual facility I stayed at, it was a great experience.

  • We had our son in an acute care hospital and the social worker recommended the Center for Discovery. Before our son was discharged, my wife and I met with the staff and toured the facility. We were impressed by the staff and how the program was structured. Our son was there 6 weeks. It was a game changer and now we feel our son left with a good base of skills that he has continued to use. We now feel our son can leave a normal type life and not have to worry that he may need to live in a group home setting as an adult. We can't say enough for the help and support we received from the entire staff at the Center for Discovery. When we were considering the facility we did some reviews on line. Some weren't overly positive, but most were and we feel that it was a very positive experience for our son and our family. Even our son now admits that he learned some great skills and that his time at Center for Discovery turned his life around.

  • I completely recommend this outpatient program for the treatment of eating disorders.  The program is tailored to each individual and my daughter was able to attend school while attending. The staff is caring, knowledgeable and fully committed to the treatment process for the patient and family.  My family now better understands eating disorders and we are able to support our daughter through her recovery.  5 stars all the way!!
