Christina Holcomb

LPC

About me

I completed my graduate degree in 2008 at Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI. My fellowship consisted of working in Forensic Psychology with a sexual offender and sexual deviance/dysfunction population. After graduation. I went on to continue my work with this population for 13 years, and have an extensive background in men's issues, sexuality and intimacy issues and sexual addiction issues including pornography addiction. I have also worked extensively with couples, family issues, those struggling with trauma, troubled youth and those struggling with depression, anxiety, change of life, addictions, gender and sexual orientation issues, spectrum disorders and many other treatment issues. I have always put the client at the center of the treatment and adapt the approach to the needs and preferences of my client. Empathy and care-based therapy are always paramount as I believe in creating a judgement-free supportive environment for my clients to feel comfortable talking about the most difficult things for a person to discuss. I have and will employ a multi-discipline approach to therapy as is needed by each particular client and we will discuss the treatment goals together from the outset.

Christina is absolutely amazing! She's down to earth, fun, and super easy to talk to. She's so relatable and just seems to get to the root of problems with relative ease. Easy to trust, easy to open up to, and so nice to boot! I can't say enough about her, she's been truly helpful through my whole experience!

Written on Nov 22, 2022 after therapy with Christina for 3 weeks on issues concerning self esteem, and coping with life changes

She’s awesome man. I think one of the best to do it. She’s very laid back and relaxed. I had so much fear going into therapy but she reassured me in that it was just a conversation and indeed it was. Plus she doesn’t interrupt me while I’m talking and interjects at appropriate times.
She’s my first therapist so I can’t guarantee she’s one of the GOATs of therapists lol but definitely one of the GOATs of just being an awesome and kind and supportive human being.
P.S. if there are any frustrations regarding the video/call quality that’s on BetterHelp
BetterHelp if you’re reading this please fix your laptop video issues lol

Christina is down to earth and really understands what I am going through. She is easy to talk to and listens before offering a response. I highly recommend her as a therapist.

Christina is great! I was so glad I was able to jump into therapy right away in the first session and make progress already on an issue that I’ve worked on with 2 other therapists and got nowhere.

She is excellent and we were a great match. I'm sad she's leaving for a new opportunity, but I'm very excited for her as I am also an equestrian and I fully recognize how much good she'll be able to do in Equine Assisted Therapy!

They say humour is the best medicine and this woman is the funniest person on planet earth! We have long conversations that appear to be about random subjects and she can pull how I am feeling as if out of thin air! A wonderful woman to share my feelings with and someone I feel I can trust and has my best interests at heart!

Thank you.

I was very apprehensive about speaking openly about my personal life, especially online. On our first call, Christina was very welcoming which helped me put my mind at ease and allowed me to comfortably open up and address my concerns. Christina is able to keep the conversations cheerful and optimistic, even if the topic itself may be rather depressing. I’ve really appreciated the help.

Work with me!
