Jerome has been so great even in just the 3 sessions we've had. He's helped me unlock many tools to better myself. It's hard opening up to a stranger but Jerome has created a safe space of understanding and openness for me to be as vulnerable as possible. Thank you so much.

James has been the ear and guidance I've needed for longer than I realize. I look forward to our sessions always. Thank you for being there.

Changed my life. I mean it.

Jerome continues to use his years of experience and knowledge, to adeptly guide me through the maze of events and conditions present in my childhood which predisposed me to live my adult life contained by the unspoken expectations of my parent's. It has only been through therapy with Jerome, I feel my blinders have been taken off. I am 32 yrs old and I'm finally discovering who I've wanted to be all these years!

Thank you, Jerome, for offering another perspective that helped me realize there's so much more to my stage, all I needed to do was pull back my curtain

It has been an absolute pleasure working with Jerome. I feel like I have grown tremendously with his help. He has helped me heal from past trauma that has plagued my pass, but thanks to Jerome's help, it has no place for my future. He is very throughout, insightful, a great listener, encouraging, a great communicator, trust worthy, and adaptable, to name a few. I have had a few friends whom have noticed positive changes within myself since I started working with Jerome, and one of which that signed on to BetterHelp to work specifically with Jerome and 3 other friends whom signed on to BetterHelp as well!! I am very thankful to have Jerome work with me and I will continue to do so!

I'm very grateful to be matched with Jerome, as he's made sharing my truths easier & more comforting. He's very understanding & non-judgmental. He's clear, concise and administers healthy boundaries. As a patient I feel safe, seen, and validated!

Finding a therapist through BetterHelp was the most PAINLESS experience! I didn't have to "shop" & travel around. Having help picking the right therapist saved me so much time, energy, and etc...I'm satisfied...
