Josh specializes in teaching Sport Psychology skills that are applicable to all types of athletes and performers. Josh was an all-conference tennis player at Clark University where he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology.

Josh attended California State University, Long Beach where he received his master's degree in Sport Psychology while researching mental toughness in college sports. He is a USPTA-Certified tennis coach and is the Assistant Men's and Women's Tennis Coach at Sacred Heart University, a Division I University in Fairfield, CT.

Throughout Josh’s career as a competitive tennis player and coach he has realized the importance of the mental side of sports. Through sport psychology and mental skills training he has helped a wide range of individuals and teams perform at higher levels and find more fulfillment in their sport.

Teaching Style

My teaching style focuses on mental toughness, focus, and mindfulness through placing players in difficult practice situations so that they've faced adversity and know how to handle it when playing in a match. By teaching players mental skills such as breathing techniques, goal-setting, routines, and visualization that they can practice on their own time, players have the option to spend as much time off the court as possible improving their game. Players will have fun, get a great workout, and learn the mental, technical, and physical skills necessary to take their game to the next level.

Student Feedback

I took lessons with Josh after not picking up a racquet for over 20 years. He was very helpful and patient in his instruction.

Daniel S. - July 29, 2017

My experience with Josh as a tennis student was that he was a very nice and patient teacher. I enjoyed my lessons with him very much and appreciated his tips. He was very flexible and responsive to my interests and what I was looking for, which are great qualities in a tennis teacher. I was taking lessons with an injury, and he was sensitive and very supportive in working around it, much more helpful and professional than other top-ranked people with whom I have worked.

Josh is amazing. He sure knows the game of tennis! He is an excellent instructor. Very patient. I like the way he reviews new skills learned .

Josh was a good instructor! He was flexible with scheduling, never finished earlier than the scheduled time, and had so many detailed tips. I enjoyed getting lessons (felt more like playing!) from Josh.
