I am a Licensed Psychologist in Minnesota with over 14 years of experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, grief and loss, problems with motivation, relationship issues, and parenting problems.
My counseling style is direct, respectful and incorporates some humor, once we get to know each other. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach is fundamentally cognitive-behavioral, but will incorporate other techniques in order to tailor our dialogue and treatment to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life, and by clicking on my profile, you have taken the first step towards change. If you are ready to take that next step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you! Jerry

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.
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.
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!
Jerry has quickly gotten to the root of why I've sought help and has been a great resource!
Jerry seems so real through emails and I wish I could thank him personally. He's so knowledgeable and professional in dealing with my concerns.
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.
Jerry is a great listener, knows how to approach your problems, and gives great down to Earth advice.
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.
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 a great therapist!
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.
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.
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!
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.
Jerry is helpful, understanding, and is very easy to talk to. I highly recommend working with him.
Kind and helpful guidance, makes sure you know he's available anytime and provides good advice.
