My personal statement for the BetterHelp community is that I accept a client's immediate relationships and larger, social context as being important factors in solving life's problems. Information that is useful and meaningful to solving problems is the focus of the Brief, Systemic Therapy I use. Also, I approach therapy from a humanistic perspective, which means that I am genuinely interested in providing an empathetic session for the client, one full of respect, understanding, patience, kindness and unconditional, positive regard. The emphasis of therapy is placed on developing workable solutions in a healing context.
More specifically, I am passionate about people and their relationships. I work from a Structural and Strategic orientation, which means that a well-defined plan for achieving identified goals or solving specified problems is developed in collaboration with the client.
The special factors I have to offer that are unique for the BetterHelp community are my areas of focus, including: Individual Counseling; Marriage & Family Therapy; Blended Families, Grief & Mourning (dealing with loss); Trauma; Divorce Recovery; and Christian Living (spiritual thoughts, attitudes, behaviors).

I enjoy talking to Jerry and find him very relatable.
Jerry is a great counselor. He understands and listens to my problems and helps me with my mindset in every session. I look forward to our sessions. Highly recommended!
Absolutely phenomenal working with someone so genuine and authentic. Look forward to more.
He is great! He actually listens and is not afraid to tell me if I’m wrong and suggests how I should maybe go about things. He is very insightful. Just what I needed to hear the truth and have different strategies and a plan to deal with my life.
Jerry is amazing. I always felt seen and understood. I would recommend him to anyone.
Absolutely fantastic! Within a month I can feel a drastic change in my mood and thought process and all for the better thanks to Jerry Franklin.
Jerry has really helped me tackle some issues and is always positive and supportive.
Awesome! Best experience!!!
