About Me

Prior to beginning working with BetterHelp, I worked in private practice where I did face-to-face couples therapy. I took these skills and experience and have applied these to the online platform. I specialize in marriage and relationship counseling, LGBTQ couples counseling, as well as helping clients who have decided to end their respective relationships navigate through the steps that follow such a decision. I have been able to help numerous couples enact changes in their relationship thus strengthening the bond and reigniting the spark. My unique experience involving both personal relationship ups and downs, as well as my professional experience makes me uniquely qualified to help both individuals and couples going through relationship problems.

I really am very happy with Jay I really and very happy with Jay and his advice and Counseling style. I feel he listens to both sides of the argument/disagreement equally and always has a good remedy for the situation. Also very straightforward and does not beat around the bush which I respect immensely.
