About me

I am a Licensed Psychologist with over 20 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

Written on Jun 11, 2023 after therapy with Gerald for 10 months on issues concerning family conflicts

He is a great listener and offers many different ways to help confront your issues. He takes the time to listen and doesn't talk over you. My biggest fear with a therapist would be someone trying to fix me. I don't want to be fixed. I want to make improvements in my coping mechanisms to make me better, but not fixed. Anyone with an anxiety issue or others in that category should know that fixing isn't something that will happen. Ways to work with the issues to make them less of a for front problem where one can function and be a successful member of society is where I have always want to put my focus. Gerry helps with that tremendously. he doesn't want to fix me, because I'm not broken. He wants to help. I'm really happy to have found Gerry and look forward to the future on helping to improve myself.
