Dr. Vijay basically guessed my entire life story within the first 5 mins of our initial meeting, and he was spoton. Definitely eye opening, and painful, but to be truly seen for the first time is powerful and I’ve spent years trying to find someone who can see through me. He’s approach is both science, and art, balanced with compassion and experience. Session with him are gifts you give to yourself, and it’s not easy, but necessary.

I’ve only had one visit with him, but I definitely will be returning. He does not sugar coat or waste yourtime. His interests are to help you to live your best life. He’s personable, understanding, and easy to talk to. He’s very knowledgeable.

It’s only been one visit but Dr. Jain seemed like he knew exactly what he was doing . He was very engaging and intuitive. Looking forward to the next visit.

I would recommend this Dr to anyone who is ready to take steps toward self improvement, and those who can take constructive criticism well. May not be the best fit for more timid, very young, and those not ready for serious self reflection.

This psychologist was abrasive and close minded. Adamant about their monotheistic beliefs, and extremely close minded this session was awful. When I mentioned my health concerns about a medicine i'm trying to get off of, his first responsewas concerning my weight- nothing of which I mentioned as a concern. He also immediatly suggested putting me onto another medication brand. This alone signals to me that he has no understanding of his cilents needs or wants. He had his own ideas that he wanted to push onto me. He never asked what my concerns were or what I wanted the session to be about. He jumped onto his judgements and assumptions and made the sessions unbearable. When I mentioned my partner, he stated that "most people would call me confused about my sexuality". He seems more hurtful than helpful. I will not be seeing him again and would not recommend him to another person.

Dr. Jain legitimately gave me simple and tangible tools in our first visit. I was in a very dark loop and he was able to call me out on that in a way that calls me to action and made mefeel like I could actually do the things I've always wanted to do but don't let myself.

He was very cynical and condescending with my daughter. She took the chance of opening up to him and he made fun of her ussues. What therapist does that?! Put your judgement away sir.

Dr. Jain is direct, honest, and very willing to help despite my extremely unique situation. He explained some points that perhaps were difficult to receive, yet I understand I must address them. I am grateful to be working with him.

Very straight forward and confident in his abilities. Although a little more aggressive than my husband preferred I think it was perfect for helping us get where we need to in the long run.

He really let's you know what you need to do to help yourself. He is straight forward with telling you things even if you don't want to hear them.

If you want no-nonsense, honest, and empathetic treatment and assessment, Dr. Jain should be your choice. He offers concrete things to do and identifies what is going on in your life that needs change. And unlike any psychologist/counselorI've seen in the past, Dr. Jain calls me out on things that no one else does. He'll tell you what you need, even if it's not what you want.
