About Me

Dr. Chad Doerr

Clinical and Sport Psychologist, Psy.D


I've always had a passion for the pursuit of personal and performance excellence. After the completion of my college baseball career at Feather River College and undergraduate degree at the University of Nevada-Reno, I went on a 9 year journey across the United States to learn from some of the best sport psychologists, clinical psychologists, and athletic coaches in the nation. The University of Denver, James Madison University, and UC Davis all taught me how to provide competent, ethical, and effective mental health and performance interventions to a diverse variety of individuals. I am honored to have been the first Graduate Assistant Director of the Challace J. McMillin Center for Sport Psychology at James Madison University, named after the influential coach and mental skills consultant. Previously, I was an Athletic Psychologist for the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Athletic Department for two years. I was recently the Director of Counseling and Sport Psychology for UNLV Athletics. My experience with elite Division I coaches, student-athletes, and support staff has allowed me to deeply understand the unique and nuanced difficulties and stressors that individuals face when competing at the highest levels. I hope to use my expertise to support your pursuit of personal and performance excellence.
