Dr. Pete was born in Chicago and developed an innate passion for the Bears, Cubs and Italian beef, which still holds true to this day. He graduated with a Bachelors of Arts in Psychology from Marquette University in Milwaukee, and then moved to Colorado to complete a Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Denver's (DU) Child, Family & School Psychology program. His training included working with children in both school and clinical settings, and now clinical diagnostics is the emphasis of his career. Dr. Pete feels passionate about helping patients understand the assessment and diagnostic process so they can maximize the benefits of results and recommendations. In his free time, he enjoys hiking, skiing, and visiting breweries, when not being a parent of two.
