About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Jay is gentle, attentive, insightful and calming. Loved working with him and will do so again in the future if needed.

Phenomenal therapist. He masters the delicate blend of great empathy and understanding with accountability so that progress and growth can be achieved. This is exactly what I required. It has not been an easy journey but it has been a fruitful one thus far; one where I’ve felt supported every step of the way.

It was my first session with BetterHelp and I’m glad I got matched with Jay. He’s very open-minded and a good listener. His advice are positive and really made me question myself at times.

Jay has been wonderful. Calm, present, understanding. He’s also wonderful at directing the conversation when I’m not entirely sure where to start. He also didn’t cut me off short when my answers took a little longer than a half hour. I’ve only spoken to him a couple times though so I certainly will have more of an opinion after so much time. He’s also my first therapist in my adult life, so I need time.
