"The Brain Always Wins.”
John Sullivan and Chris Parker
I currently serve the community as a Clinical and Sport Psychologist and have worked as an adjunct faculty at Oakland University, and School Psychologist during the earlier years of my career. I earned an undergraduate degree at Michigan State University before earning a School Psychology Master and Clinical Psychology Doctorate in 1993 at the University of Detroit-Mercy. In addition to the above, I have remained in private practice throughout my career.
Because of a passion for and interest in sport and other performance-related activities (i.e. business teams, music, theatre, dance, forensics), I have always valued the impact that performance-related cultures have on one’s life path, social development, and sense of well-being. In my youth and early adult life, I participated in football, wrestling, track, choir, and numerous other performance activities. I also competed in wrestling and judo during my college years and later coached wrestling at the high school level.
Additional Professional memberships include the American Psychological Association (APA), Society for Sport, Exercise and Performance Psychology (Division 47, APA), Association for Applied Sport Psychology (AASP), and the International Association for Sport Psychology (ISSP).
