About Me

Reaching out for help can be an intimidating endeavor, but having the awareness that your life is not where you want it to be is a great first step. While I generally focus on the present, as we cannot change things that have already happened, we may look to the past in our search for previous success in managing the issues before you. I believe the trust built between client and therapist is the most important aspect in the counseling relationship and the pursuit and maintenance of this trust is an ongoing process. Whether you have been struggling for years or experiencing a new obstacle, I believe we can work through the concerns together. The strength it takes to ask for help is the same strength that will lead you to happiness.

I completed my Master’s of Science in Counseling from the University of Nebraska-Omaha in 2005. I have been working as a mental health therapist for nearly 16 years in Nebraska. I have experience working with individuals, couples and families struggling with a variety of issues, such as anxiety and depression, trauma, anger management, life transitions and infidelity. I believe I bring a multi-faceted perspective to my work, as I have professional experience with inpatient care, case management, as well as outpatient therapy. Typically, I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused and Motivational Interviewing while always stressing the importance of building the relationship between client and therapist based on trust, mutual respect, and unconditional positive regard.

I look forward to the opportunity to help people with life issues that have left them unsatisfied. Our growth is a life-long journey and sometimes we lean on others in pursuit of our true potential. My hope is that I can assist people on their path when they are looking for guidance.

Jerry is the sort of person that takes the intimidation out of therapy.

He is a good listener and focuses on present solutions and problematic thinking patterns to help reframe thoughts and find solutions.

Jerry is extremely understanding and flexible. I’m always very thankful for our weekly sessions. He provides great insight and perspective and is an excellent listener.

Jerry is so helpful- I came to him with a fairly specific need and as those needs have changed our therapy has evolved to accommodate and I have found him to be equally helpful, empathetic, kind and non judgmental through all of the stages.

It's only been a few sessions with Jerry, but he's very easy to talk with, non-judgemental, and asks pointed questions to help me understand the issues at hand. He provided a worksheet before we first met that helped me to clarify why I was seeking therapy, and I think it really helped us to get started. I've been to several therapists and psychologists over the years, and I find that both the BetterHelp platform and particularly Jerry to be extremely helpful.

Jerry is attentive, thoughtful, respectful, and posses every other trait you’d hope a therapist would have. He has a sense of humor that he brings with his optimism and encouragement. I’ve never had a counselor compile their own unbiased list of positives for me over time and present them to me at the most needed times for positive reinforcement. I appreciate every visit I’ve had with Jerry along with his willingness to work with my schedule. If you’re questioning who to put your trust into with BetterHelp, I would without out a doubt recommend him.

What a conscientious fella. He really gets in touch with the behind-the-scenes of what has you struggling, and is a congenial and gentle hand on your shoulder, similar to what you might expect from a priest, I guess. He’s really personable and I’ve enjoyed my time with him!

Jerry really shows that he cares about what you’re saying. He will make the effort to understand everything you are saying and be able to pick it up without asking you to refresh him on something you said in another session, he remembers everything. Furthermore he is able to communicate suggestions concisely and clearly.
