What I need the most was a reassuring voice to help me navigate my feelings and to try to explore different techniques that would make it easier for me to control my moods, she really helped me with this.

Ms. Holcomb has a calming presence and demonstrated interest in getting to know my situation better.

Although I’m just getting started with Ms. Holcomb, I have nothing but positive things to say about her this far. This is the first time I’ve ever tried talk therapy but I feel completely at ease opening up to her and when she asks questions I feel zero judgment at all from her. I would highly recommend her!
