About me

With eight years of experience on the BetterHelp platform, six state licenses, and thousands of clients served, I know that it is not always easy to come to therapy and talk about difficult issues. While virtual/messaging based therapy may be a bit unfamiliar, I have extensive experience on this platform. Over the past eight years I have developed a very high degree of comfort and confidence in my ability to deliver high quality clinical services to my clients. I am here to help you with whatever life has thrown your way, and I am in this journey to self-improvement with you. Additionally, I want to teach you the skills I use to work through these problems so that you will come away from therapy with a better understanding of yourself, and how to independently work through your issues in the future. I am direct, goal driven, and results oriented. I specialize in relationship issues, couples, stress and anxiety management, anger/aggression management, depression and bipolar, and LBGT issues. For any new client wishing to have their intake session, I can accommodate that within 48 hours. My passion is helping people, and I would be happy to help you.

Jay was great he listened to everything I had to say was flexible and gave great advice! He made sure I understood what he was trying to relay and even asked great questions to make sure he understood my problems as well.

Jay is a great therapist with a lot of knowledge. He’s very understanding, patient, and non-judgmental. He gives great advice and is always concerned about my well-being. He responds in a timely manner and is communicative. I would recommend Jay if you’re needing someone to talk to or bounce ideas off of. He isn’t afraid to tell it how it is and that’s a good thing when friends or family may tell you things they think you want to hear.

Jay has helped me reach several of my mental health goals in such a short amount of time. I am so glad I made the switch to someone new who offered a different perspective on things. Anytime I feel overwhelmed, I have someone to talk to and who is super responsive. He also checks in with me to see if I’m doing okay when it’s been a while, which is something I love! Someone who cares! He is also very straightforward, which is a quality that I personally like. I would recommend him to anyone!
