Reviews

Written by S.C. on May 31, 2021 after counseling with Jay for 2 weeks

While our interaction was limited, the times I have spoken with Jay, he has shown that he is knowledgeable, professional and most important, caring. I would highly recommend Jay to anyone seeking assistance.

Written by L.A. on May 20, 2021 after counseling with Jay for 5 months

Jay is a skilled and competent therapist who does not apply the one solution fits all strategy. he tailors his therapy strategy to suits the individual need of his client. he has succeeded in creating trust between my daughter and him, allowing her to open up to him, which was on its own a big challenge. my daughter's mood is always uplifted after each session. Jay is also very responsive and does not delay his feedback. Jay is open to hearing from me as a parent, some inside about my daughter's challenges.

I had four sessions with J. and already I’m starting to be able to get perspective on my situation and feel supported and listened to. Even asking what do I want to focus on in the future. He’s very kind and very qualified

Jay is responsive, personable and helpful. He is supporting both me and my daughter and we couldn't ask for a better advocate and advisor!

Written by B.R. on Feb 10, 2021 after counseling with Jay for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, self esteem, bipolar disorder, and adhd

Jay has a calming effect from the moment you speak to him. He listens closely and repeats to you what your concerns are, which I appreciate as it allows me to know we are on the same page. I feel comfortable talking to him about my current mental health issues. I have been cautious about male practitioners in the past but that has not been an issue with Jay; I don't feel any gender bias from him. I'm grateful we were matched on the app.
