Hello, I am Jason!
I believe my skills best match with people struggling adjusting, encountering stress or anxiety, needing encouragement, dealing with grief, or experiencing some depression. My approach is to build a trusting, honest relationship with you. I want to provide you compassion, acceptance, respect, and empathy while also being honest and real with you. I use an eclectic approach, primarily a mix of person-centered, cognitive-behavioral, and REBT. I also use a lot of encouragement and support. I provide links to articles and videos, personal feedback, and various worksheets to help give you insight, d build new skills. Although my focus is on our relationship and empathy, I am future-thinking. I think this helps with troubleshooting and goal-setting. Research has shown that having a solid therapeutic relationship often is supportive of a positive therapeutic outcome. If something isn’t working, let’s have a conversation about it. I can be flexible.
I have many years of experience working with all kinds of people with different struggles. I'm licensed in Montana but now live on the East Coast. I work a day job and communicate with my clients primarily in the evenings. I typically respond sooner than 24 hours. For this reason, it’s pretty challenging for me to respond to urgent messages. I am available for chat, phone, or video sessions. I do 1-hour appointments. I have availability mostly in the evenings with early morning times on Saturdays. If, however, my times available for sessions do not fit your situation, please contact me about alternative appointment times. If you happen to miss, I will report it in the system, but rest assured, I’m not upset with you or anything like that. Think of it how some doctor's offices conduct business these days. By documenting "no shows," it helps me be compensated for my time. All that happens on your end is you receive an email notification. That’s it. Still, if you’re bothered by being reported as a “no show,” please talk with me about it.
By partnering with me, I believe I can instill hope, restore confidence, and support you as you make the changes necessary to get you where you want to be. Just like having a gym membership doesn't make you fit, having a subscription here won't help you by itself. This will take work. It will take communication. Be an active participant in your mental health. You’re welcome to write messages or make appropriate appointments that fit your life. This is your service to use as you see fit.
I look forward to working with you. Thank you for trusting me. You can do this, and I can help.

He is a great counselor and has helped me better myself socially and emotionally. He is completely understanding and never makes you feel ashamed for how you feel, and he goes above and beyond to help you get in a better mindset
Dr. Newcomb is very easy to talk to. I appreciate the way he makes me feel validated.
Dr Newcomb has been a great help! Very understanding, yet up front with what I need to do to get myself to where I need to be. Gave me all the tools to sort through my thoughts and handle my anxiety
I highly recommend Dr. Newcomb. He has been absolutely fantastic with helping me through issues, boundaries and self-confidence matters I hadn’t been able to talk through with other therapists. He provides a lot of detail, extra reading material and activities to practice to help with different matters. I am so happy and grateful for Dr. Newcomb. I would highly recommend him and BetterHelp.
It’s so much better being able to talk to a therapist daily, as opposed to a one hour meeting once a week where you forget half of what you want to say and there’s not enough time or you remember more details later. Through this app I have been able to write down and organize as much as I want to write and completely get everything off my chest! It’s also a much more affordable option.
