About Dr. J

Known as “Dr. J” to my clients, I have spent the past two decades working with youth and families in educational settings. During this time, I have served as a teacher, a school counselor, and a varsity volleyball coach. I am a licensed marriage and family therapist and earned my PhD in psychology with an emphasis in performance psychology.

My philosophy is to focus on who you are becoming rather than what you are. Within this context is the belief that seeking help is not a sign of weakness or that something is wrong, but a sign of enormous strength and a willingness to improve. This is the philosophy I have utilized with youth and families over the past twenty years. 

I have been happily married for over a decade, have two children, and love to stay active playing beach volleyball or coaching my kids' teams.
