Dr. Chad Doerr
I am a licensed psychologist in Nevada (#973). I am also a Certified Mental Performance Coach (CMPC) through the Association of Applied Sport Psychology (AASP). I have served as the Director of Counseling and Sport Psychology for UNLV Athletics, and also was an Athletic Psychologist for the Nebraska Cornhuskers. I am located in Reno, NV and work with individuals across the state of Nevada.
As a licensed clinical psychologist with sport psychology expertise, I specialize in both mental health counseling and mental performance coaching for athletes and individuals in high-stress, high performance environments.
Doing the work
Are you having difficulties consistently performing to your potential? Are you struggling to manage setbacks? Do you keep getting in your own way? Has your team culture recently taken a negative turn? Are aspects of your life outside your performance domain negatively impacting your life?
Elite performers and coaches everywhere are now turning to sport psychology services to find a performance edge and improve their mental health. My goal is to help you perform at your best, on demand, when it matters most, or get back to being the person you want to be after setbacks. As a licensed clinical psychologist with expertise in sport and performance enhancement, I help athletes, coaches, performers, and individuals in high-stress environments deliberately train their minds through empirically validated interventions. These techniques and strategies may build focus, improve confidence, enhance practice habits, and identify strengths, areas for improvement, and potential obstacles to overcome adversity more effectively.
Additionally, effective leadership and coaching is immensely challenging process. I have spent my graduate training and early career helping Division I college coaches and athletes build fun, demanding, high performance cultures they love. My expertise in the development of high performance culture may help you take your team to new heights, and also identify what may be impacting your group from reaching their highest potential.
Whether you are a recreational athlete looking to find more enjoyment in your craft, an elite college/professional performer that wants to take your mental game to the next level, or a coach/leader that wants to build a high-performing culture, I would love to help you reach your goals.

“AMAZING experience working with Dr. Doerr. He had an incredibly positive impact on both our team and coaching staff. Having been a college athlete and coach himself puts him in a unique position to understand the full depth of the competitive cycle for all parties. Simply put, Dr. Doerr GETS IT!!! He gets the importance for consistently practicing the mental skills; in order to achieve and perform at our highest potential consistently. He is a great communicator, and cares deeply about connecting with the athletes and coaches. The work he did with Nebraska Softball to Build and Sustain a Championship Culture was incredible and invaluable.
If you want to take your game to the next level, I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND seeking out Dr. Doerr’s expertise as a team, or an individual.”
