About me

Welcome! I am a licensed professional counselor (Pennsylvania) and have provided psychological services for over 14 years working in private and group practice, community clinics, universities, and substance misuse settings. During this time I’ve enjoyed walking with a diverse client base as they met their mental health goals.

I have the most experience working with anxiety, stress issues, depression, life change/transition (e.g. career, relationship/marriage start/end, relocation, starting/ending college), and trauma. I also help clients manage substance misuse and addiction, especially in conjunction with other mental health concerns. I enjoy volunteering as a mentor to married/dedicated couples and those preparing for marriage or exclusivity, so couples therapy is also something I offer when able.

I use an integrative clinical approach and interventions that are evidence-based. I believe services should be tailored to each client’s goals and preparedness for change. A sampling of specific modalities and interventions include client-centered, motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and solution-focused interventions. I also incorporate supplemental materials for my work with couples.

Lasting, quality change is rarely a quick fix. Try not to think of this process as needing “x” or "y" number of sessions. Most people reach their personal goals when they can move and progress at their own pace and comfort level. My commitment is to respect your time while helping us navigate your goals in an efficient manner.

I appreciate you taking some time to learn about me. I am looking forward to learning more about you!

He's the best I've ever spoken to over many years. Very very good at what he does and how he does it. Highly recommend

I honestly feel like I have made more progress in the couple of months I've worked with Eric Holmes than I have in the years I've worked with a prior practitioner, no fault to them.

"I started Better Help unsure of what to expect. I was always scared of therapy and the only time I met a counselor in person, it was not a good fit. Better Help was the perfect introduction and surpassed my expectations ten fold. I have a new found confidence and love for the full person that I am. Its like a new lease on life since I never recognized the unnecessary weight I carried.

Working with Eric, together we broke down my "all or nothing" mentality and I freed my conscience of unplaced guilt. I feel healthier not only mentally, but physically as my headaches and back aches started to disappear. I am happy, confident and created a tool kit to maintain this feeling no matter what life throws at me. If I ever fault though, I know exactly where to turn.

Anyone considering Better Help should undoubtedly take that plunge. I can attest to the fact that this service is life changing and Eric was the perfect counselor for me. Every session he met me exactly where I was at and helped me move forward in my journey. THANK YOU to both Eric and to Better Help for changing my life! Its cheesy, but its true.

Try Better Help and get a counselor who you fully trust, I promise you will not regret it. "
