Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Thomas Buckner. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Regain might be different.

Connecting effortlessly with someone just minutes after being introduced is truly special, especially over a video call. Thomas possesses this rare talent. More importantly, his skills as a therapist become apparent right from the start, not merely his engaging personality. This combination instills confidence when you’re taking the leap of faith to discuss personal growth with a stranger. I’m deeply grateful for the platform that facilitated my connection with Thomas, a consummate professional. Thank you to both Regain and Thomas for creating a safe space to engage in difficult conversations.

My husband and I have really been able to reevaluate the way that we speak to one another through our sessions. It has been great to have guidance and time to reflect. We have received some great worksheets as supplemental work as well.

Thomas is very engaged and checks in almost daily to give a positive message. Always willing to listen and give suggestions on how to react or what do to. Truly enjoy talking with him and working through my hardship.

Thomas was great for men and woman. He put everything into perspective and helped me and my wife’s communication and understanding. We communicate ten times better without struggling to understand each other.
