Jay Swedlaw


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.
