Relationship problems can be painful and challenging. Support and guidance from a professional counselor has been shown to make big changes. We created Regain so anyone can have convenient, discreet, and affordable access to professional help.
Common relationship problems people seek help for are difficulty communicating, high levels of conflict, disagreement over finances, children, or in-laws, and problems with infidelity, to name just a few.

On ReGain, you and your counselor will get a dedicated online "room", which will be your private and secure place to communicate. Your partner will be invited to this room as well if you decide to try e-counseling together. This room is open 24/7. You can enter it at any time, from any Internet-connected device wherever you are. In this room, you will write about yourself and your relationship issues, ask questions, and discuss the issues that trouble you. Your counselor will login to the same room, read your messages and respond with feedback, insights, and guidance. This ongoing communication is the basis of your work with your counselor.

If you choose to try e-counseling on ReGain with your partner (either at the start of counseling, or if you choose to invite them later), your dialogue would be between all three of you: you, your partner, and your counselor. Together you will work towards making a positive change in your relationship and accomplishing your goals.

Regain counselors are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited psychologists (Ph.D/Psy.D), marriage and family therapists (MFT), clinical social workers (LCSW),and licensed professional counselors (LPC). All of them have a Master’s Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field. They have been qualified and certified by their state professional licensing board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice.

You are not limited in the number of messages ("sessions") you can have with your counselor. The frequency of your sessions would vary based on your availability, and the interaction between you and your counselor. For example, some people have 3-4 short interactions every week, while others prefer to have one very long and thorough session. You may use the service extensively during time of need and use it sparsely at other times. Your counselor will try to accommodate your changing needs in a timely manner.

Very helpful and convenient

I think this form of therapy is very helpful and convenient, however of course no therapy is helpful if the people don’t want to actually work on the issues themselves during the time out of session. Compared to traditional therapy copay prices I feel like you get almost more value here because of the written sessions. My only issue I have is with the app itself is that there isn’t like an auto-save with the message center. I would suggest you write out in something that autosaves like a separate word processor or notepad / google drive and then paste it into the app. Sometimes if you exit the app or website you can lose what you write which is very frustrating lol but it’s avoidable & I’m sure app developers can fix that in the future. I was lucky to be matched with a great therapist right away who we feel comfortable with and already it has helped our relationship! I think it just helps have peace of mind to have an outlet to dedicate to your issues rather than have them linger around.

Great service but needs better technology

My husband and I recently started using Regain and it’s been really good so far. The first counselor we were working with wasn’t a great fit but it was easy to request a new counselor. The new counselor has been great so far. The cost is reasonable and I like that we are both able to message our counselor whenever we need to.

The only recommendation I have is related to the technology. Currently the app/website can only contact 1 device for a session. My husband and I are living apart right now d/t the military and pandemic, so we aren’t in the same place for sessions. Our counselor is not able to have a session with both of us at the same time since we are not in the same location. In order for both of us to have audio/visual sessions they have to be done separately. The weekly fee only covers one live session per week so we have to pay a little extra for each of us to have a session. There is a message board for both of us to communicate with the counselor. The counselor can also share worksheets and other resources for us to use. Would definitely give 5 stars if 3-way live sessions were available.

Not helpful

I have tried this two different counselors. The first one kept sending generic worksheets and never really asked questions pertaining to my specific situation. The second guy. I had hope for him. He seemed great at first. We had one live session which he wanted to talk on the phone but I just wanted to message. He seemed annoyed by that. After our session he did do a check in later that day but I was busy so I responded the next day and answered some questions he had asked and shared some thoughts I had. He later messaged that I should schedule a session. He didn’t acknowledge or reply to anything I actually said. 1. I don’t want to talk on the phone yet he keeps pushing it. 2. All of the sessions he had available was for the following week and non of the days actually fit into my schedule since I work 10 hour shifts and don’t want to spend my breaks or short lunch on the phone. 3. I just felt like he could have at least replied to at least something I said. I mean I know unlimited doesn’t mean my counselor is unlimited available to me but when he does check in I mean like say something. I thought the benefit to a platform like this is that one can share thoughts as they arrive.
I just feel like this has been a waste not once but twice. And I’m not even sure if this is like real counseling.
