Are you suffering through a job loss or a divorce? Are feeling overwhelmed? Are you sad or depressed and can't seem to work through it. There is hope.
My name is Jerry and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida. For many years , I have provided psychotherapy and education to those who have been struggling with addiction, depression, anxiety, anger issues and career transition.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. It is imperative that everyone is treated with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I maintain a non-judgmental position and realize that we all have different experiences that form our values. My approach combines Cognitive -Behavioral Therapy, Brief Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Positive Psychology models. Together, we will create a plan that will help you with whatever situation that brought you here to me.
I am born and raised in Florida. I joined the Navy after high school and I am proud to have served for 23 years retiring in 2004. I went to work in corporate HR and it was during my career in HR that I realized my passion for helping people. In 2010, I returned to graduate school and embarked on a journey that ultimately brought me here to you today. When I am not working, I love spending time with my family and friends. I am an avid sports fan and love all of my Tampa teams.

Jerry is awesome. Although times are tough, it feels good knowing I have Jerry to resort to.
He is such a great help. Don’t know what I would do without him.
I was at a pretty low point in my life when I started working with Jerry, and he played a large part in helping me to get my priorities in order and to get my life back on track again. Very compassionate man, yet tells you what you need to hear to move past your problems.
In my time of realizing that I need help, I searched for a choosy effective alternative and found Better Help. I was matched with a counselor much faster than I thought and he, so far, has been a tremendous help. Jerry has helped me understand human behavior in a way that I can understand which helps me cope with my individual circumstance. I now know that with his help I'll get through.
Jerry was very helpful in working through my anxiety issues. He is very understanding and helps explain techniques for dealing with the anxiety and really shows compassion and understanding. I highly recommend him.
He’s kind and straight forward which is great for me. Offers good advice and really seems to understand my needs.
Jerry is very relatable and offers good insight.
Jerry is very good - totally understands what I am going through and gets it. He is helping me tremendously.
Jerry has been exceptional!
Jerry is a person with a very warm heart. He genuinely cares about you. I came in with a history of being judged very often by others in ways that created anxiety over time. Jerry has always listened to me without judging and that has enabled me to feel safe. By being totally non-judgmental, Jerry has given me the space to express aspects of myself I had suppressed for a long time which has helped me to get back again to the centre of my being and make me a happier person. Jerry is very respectful, open and responds frequently to messages. He is also very humble and ego-less in his therapeutic approach; it is his passion to give you a helping hand and whilst you can rely on all competences, skills and experience, Jerry has a humble self-less attitude. He will guide you confidently with all his qualities, but does so in a very down-to-earth way with an attitude of wanting to serve you and your needs so that you can live a happy life. It has been a great experience to work with Jerry
Jerry is open, responsive, and caring.
