Jerry is so helpful and a good listener. He offers multiple forums to solve issues or concerns I have. I have never had a counselor understand me so well and be there for me like he has. If we haven't talked in awhile he will check in to see how I am doing. I don't even have to ask! He just knows. Amazing counselor!

Jerry is a totally "real" personable counselor. I feel completely confident in his input and advice. He pulls no punches and makes you feel as though there is true progress.

I am new to online therapy, and so far I have had a better experience with this than I have ever had in an in-person setting. The idea that I can send a message and Jerry responds when he's available is awesome, as his response so far has been far quicker than waiting for your in-person therapist to call you back or squeeze you in for an appointment if an issue arises. You don't get that kind of personalized care in a clinic. My experience so far has been an excellent one, and I highly recommend Jerry, and this type of counseling.

Jerry has been great about acknowledging my issues but providing me tools to deal with them in a productive manner. That is the type of help I was truly seeking.

Jerry is a well informative counselor. Easy to communicate with and offers different perspectives for the problems which make them easy to handle.

Jerry has been great to talk to! He understands what my priorities and worries are and offers great advice and help in order to get through the tough times. I recommend him 100%!

Written by N.A. on Oct 14, 2017 after counseling with Jerry for 2 weeks depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, lgbt, relationship, eating, sleeping, self esteem, and anger

Jerry is very understanding, nonjudgmental, and provides solid advice. I have found that he provides strategies that I can employ in my life that help me tackle the issues that caused me to seek therapy. I really enjoy his sense of humor and the way he can add a lighthearted feel to a message, even if the issue at hand maybe dark or very personal. This makes it very easy to interact with him and have a more fulfilling dialogue!

Jerry is understanding, funny, and extremely insightful! So far he's been better than the more traditional counselors I've dealt with.

Written by M.I. on Sep 25, 2017 after counseling with Jerry for 2 months stress, anxiety

Talking with Jerry and examining where my stresses come from has helped to greatly reduce my anxiety. I have not had or felt close to any kind of panic attacks since we've begun talking and I have a better picture of what I was letting get to me, and how to react better in highly stressful situations.

Written by G.L. on Aug 11, 2017 after counseling with Jerry for 2 weeks depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship, intimacy-related, and self esteem

Jerry is both funny, thoughtful, and willing to get the job done. I was unsure about online therapy, but he has done a great job of being responsive and offering resources I can try and apply to my life. I'm very thankful for all his time!

Written by A.A. on Jul 29, 2017 after counseling with Jerry for 2 weeks depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, and grief

Jerry has quickly gotten to the root of why I've sought help and has been a great resource!

Written by S.A. on Jul 03, 2017 after counseling with Jerry for 1 month relationship, and self esteem

Very happy with Jerry so far. He doesn't offer phone consultations and I was a bit hesitant at first if messaging will work for me. It worked great. Jerry has a very good idea of what I talking about, gives me very relevant advice, has a great sense of humor and I always look forward to hearing from him.
Its like having a very smart friend always available for you.
I highly recommend Jerry.

It's been easy to open up with Jerry. I don't feel any judgement from him and he checks on me when I forget to send updates.

Written by P.A. on Jun 12, 2017 after counseling with Jerry for 3 weeks stress, anxiety, and relationship

Jerry has been great in helping me deal with my anxiety and depression. He's helped me develop some good strategies to cope going forward. Definitely a good guy to talk to. (He's got a nice light sense of humour too).

Jerry is wonderful and understands my situation very well. He does not pressure me nor is he judgmental. He checks in with me to let me know he is there for me and is very helpful.

Written by C.R. on Mar 03, 2017 after counseling with Jerry for 3 weeks family, parenting, self esteem, and anger

Jerry has been very helpful and honest. He has helped me think through situations and put things in a different perspective that I couldn't see. I would say my first experience with online counseling has been a good one.

Written by I.R on Feb 22, 2017 after counseling with Jerry for 3 weeks stress, anxiety, relationship, self esteem, and career

Jerry has been thoughtful, insightful, kind, humorous. I felt at ease opening up and sharing my thoughts with him straight away and I am very glad to have done so as it allowed for conversations that were both emotionally comforting and useful in a practical way. I can tell that he reads my messages with great care, and puts time and effort into his responses, in order to help me move forward.

Jerry has been a godsend. His logical, humorous, rational, and compassionate words are so healing. I have recommended him to everyone I know!

Written by S.O on Jan 22, 2017 after counseling with Jerry for 3 weeks depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, and self esteem

After seeing a therapist in person for a year and not making much progress I stumbled across BetterHelp and was a little skeptical about how much online therapy could help but I felt hopeless and didn't have anything more to lose so thought I would explore it.

Jerry was incredibly insightful and was able to pick up on things that my current therapist didn't. He was direct, on point, knowledgable as well as encouraging, empathetic and someone I felt I could trust even though we had no face time. The resources and worksheets he shared were very helpful and I continue to use them. Most of all he gave me a potential diagnosis for a personality disorder so I will now be seeing a psychiatrist in person to get his evaluation and can finally move forward with getting the appropriate treatment.
