About Me

I’m an avid sports fan who played three years of college football and spent the past 20 years as a sports psychologist at the University of Notre Dame. I’m excited to be back in Florida where I earned my doctorate degree. My wife, an electrical engineer, and I have three children, two of whom are psychologists.

I enjoy assisting my patients in embracing the notion that we all want the same thing – to love and be loved in return. There is no greater joy for me as a psychologist than to experience the transformation in my patients as they grow and develop their self-esteem. When self-esteem is compromised, how love is expressed and received will also be compromised.

I maintain a strong commitment to the process of celebrating the diversity that surrounds us. The process necessary to truly celebrate diversity starts with cultural humility. I am currently doing what I can to get the word out on in the Jacksonville area.
