I've been working with Jesse for about four months now. He's very professional yet warm and compassionate. He clearly cares deeply about his clients and goes the extra mile to speak with them and follow up outside of regularly scheduled sessions. I'd highly recommend him to anyone.

The best! Knowledgeable, empathetic, intelligent, thoughtful, communicative, helpful, professional, caring, highly qualified…that says it all. He should write books.

Jesse has been phenomenal in helping me process my grief. He’s very polite, friendly and funny. Talking with him feels like talking with an old friend. He’s very supportive, very kind and patient. He’s also a great listener and sets goals for me to complete every week. He’s responsive to my messages and always provides very good insight on everything. I probably don’t deserve such an amazing therapist.

Working with Jesse is a wonderful experience!
When I receive messages from him I feel that he took the time to understand what I am trying to say to him and respond back in a manner that I understand. The goals we work with are obtainable for me. As everyone is different, I can only assume that he would make adjustments for every person. When we have our sessions, I feel heard and seen; not just taken at face value.
I've only had one other therapist prior to Jesse (through a different route) but understand why people go through BetterHelp,
Thank you so much Jesse for everything!
