Build The Practice You Love

Leverage tech to create the safe, secure, ethical practice you desire.
The right tech can make a BIG difference in how your practice feels to you and to your clients.
Level Up Your TeletherapyMeet Your HIPAA Needs

For Mental Health, By Mental Health

When we say we “get you” it’s because we ARE you. Roy Huggins, LPC NCC is a practicing clinician and an adjunct ethics professor at Portland State University. Roy and the team of therapists and tech experts at PCT are all here to help our colleagues in mental health create practices that leverage tech to provide safe, effective client care.

Solidify Your Practice’s Teletherapy Component

Whether you select our full telemental health certificate program, one of our most popular courses, or consultation services, you’ll find easy learning opportunities compiled in a fun, and engaging way.

You’ll feel more confident and secure in your practice’s teletherapy client care.

Don't leave your client care to chance.

Trial and error isn’t the greatest for client care. Instead of feeling uncertain and frustrated with teletherapy, feel confident from your very first teletherapy session that you are providing clinically effective care.

Not only does this foundational guidance help you provide the quality care you offer in-person, but it will also help you leverage teletherapy to grow as a care provider.


I felt totally prepared legally and ethically to take on telemental health and my clients were grateful for the service. I mindfully selected taking the 17 hour course verses the shorter course offered due to the COVID-19 crisis, and I’m glad I did! Mental health counseling is my encore career and I’ve always wanted to do telemental health counseling versus in-person counseling…the stars are aligned just right and Person Centered Tech gave me the tools to be able to think beyond this current crisis and take this opportunity to turn a bad situation into a future counseling via telemental health.

I also had opportunity this week to compare your course to one that’s being offered by another company for free, waiving their fee. Your course is a lot easier to learn/understand/apply, all the same information.

I researched many telemental health training programs over a few months as I prepared to reenter clinical practice after many years of not working. My funds were limited and I felt anxious about costs. As part of my research, I spoke with Liath and asked what the difference was between your educational offerings and the others. Not only did the explanation I received make total sense- “The interactive content is based on adult learning principles and designed to be easily integrated” – but I was drawn to the office hours features. In the end, the office hours feature was a main reason I opted to do your courses as opposed to the lesser cost one at PESI.
