A free first call should provide you will all the information you need to decide. The above steps also generates a link so you can experience a video connection with me and evaluate if this method of counseling is right for you. This process is as simple as FaceTime or Skype, but will be a HIPAA compliant connection. This means all transmitted patient health information (PHI) is encrypted during transit according to HIPAA security and privacy rules, as a result your data is deeply protected. Your video data is never stored. 

Introduction:

This site is designed to give you information about choosing a therapist, my practice policies, and telehealth counseling.  You have a free first call. I ask you to take advantage of this offer. The call will be about you and your needs. You will be able to evaluate me firsthand, and sample at video telehealth call if you like. I will just send you a link and we would get started. I am Roger Mark Holcomb, LMFT. My California license number is LMFT 47406. You can verify my license here. I am accepting patients in evening and weekend time slots. However, you can reach out to me anytime. I might take 24 hours to call back. My voicemail is private and secure. My experience as a Licensed Marriage Family Counselor began in 2009, yet I have prior counseling experience as an intern and a practicum student. These experiences began in 1993. I look forward to us meeting.

The vision of Holcomb Telehealth Counseling is to give psychotherapy patients like yourself an easy way to access services that include: convenience, transparency, responsiveness, and superior quality. My clinical training includes the following approaches: Psychodynamic TherapiesFamily Systems, Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy,Narrative TherapyHumanistic Therapy,  I am also a practitioner of  of Mindfulness-Based Approaches. I have received 56 hours of training at Giarretto Institute in Sexual Abuse Treatment; 18 months training in Advanced Couples and Family Treatment at John F. Kennedy University Counseling Center; I am a REMO HealthRhythms Facilitator; and have received Crisis Negotiation Training by Los Angeles Police SWAT.  

Over the years I have worked with many psychological and family problems. It is my job to break down difficult problems into manageable parts. Holcomb Telehealth Counseling provides the same individual, couples, and family counseling you would receive if you were to come to an office. However, my service is more convenient, saving you the time and fuss one normally experiences when going to a clinical appointment.  

My service is especially useful for those having a difficult time engaging in the therapy process and getting to therapy. Some people feel a great discomfort establishing health care appointments. Holcomb Telehealth Counseling is a great choice for those living in underserved areas. All California inquiries and referrals are welcome.

Trying to make a choice?:

Self-discovery through counseling requires courage, insight, and time. If you are reading this you may be contemplating this great opportunity. I hope you find telehealth sessions align with your preferences . As a consumer advocate I want you to make a good choice. I want the best treatment for you at the right time. I will do my professional best to find the right fit for you.

My initial free consultation is 50 minutes in length. This free session begins when we get past the set up and technical aspects of a first call. If you want to consider you will already be dialed in. You will get the complete test drive. We will use this time to answer any and all of your questions as well as see if my practice is a good fit for you. You will have the option to conduct this on the phone or by video link. Either is fine. If you want the full experience I would suggest video. Prior to our first call I will need to get your email address so I can send you a link as well as a invitation to your patient portal. The portal will have in it practice documents you will need to complete, specifically a consent form for our sample session, and other forms for your completion if you decide to continue. 

Although it is a sample session I will take it seriously and follow the necessary protocols to give you an experience you can make a decision over. It is appropriate for us to discuss what you are entering counseling for. The clearer you can be the better. I can therefore give you an idea of whether I can be of help to you or not. If I have not dealt with your situation before I will let you know and we will discuss this and perhaps make an appropriate referral.
