I am a mental health clinician and pastoral counselor, nationally certified and licensed in Maryland, the District of Columbia and Virginia. I hold a B.A. degree in Computer Science from the University of the District of Columbia and a M.S. degree in Pastoral Counseling from Loyola College in Maryland, now known as Loyola University Maryland. In 2010, I earned a doctorate in Psychology and Christian Counseling from Louisiana Baptist University and Theological Seminary.
I can assist you with any trouble with your family, children, substance abuse, co-occurring disorders, workplace stress, depression or anxiety. Perhaps you are preparing for marriage, repairing an important relationship, or considering career options. My clinical specialties are relationships, adolescents and co-occurring disorders using an existential, eclectic and holistic approach. I am a Certified Employee Assistance Professional, Certified Anger Management Facilitator, Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) and Certified Effective Black Parenting Facilitator. I work with individuals, couples, clergy, physicians and other medical professionals, military and first responders.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, reality, psychodynamic and rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. The aim is transformation by letting go of yesterday and taking action to renew your ways of thinking to achieve a wonderful change in your life tomorrow! It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
Let every day be the first day of the rest of your life, but especially let today be a new beginning

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Jesse Griffin. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Dr. Griffin is an amazing listener and is a very positive influence. He manages to keep the spirits light and is very objective when needed to be. Very compassionate and thoughtful, and shows an obvious care to his patients.
I was skeptical about this service, and honestly now I can say this is some of the best therapy I’ve had. Dr. Griffin is real and to the point. In a very respect mannered way. I feel comfortable talking on a level like he’s the big brother, yet boundaries are still respected. I get the impression that being a therapist and actively listening and actually giving worthwhile advice is who Dr. Griffin is. Top notch!! I will continue with this form of therapy for the foreseeable future. Just because it’s thru an app or online doesn’t mean therapy is lesser. In fact, I feel the convenience, personalization, and consistency is worth so much more than the cost.
He's great, and was especially helpful with a Christian perspective on relationships for me!
