Jared Scherz, Ph.D., M.Ed., ACS
Dr. Scherz is a clinical psychologist, author, and educational consultant, working with educators for over twenty years. He earned his Master's in Education from Penn State University and went on to be an elementary school guidance counselor before earning his Ph.D. He is the owner of Integrated Therapy Center in NJ, the creator of PsychPro, and the founder of UFeud, the first social networking site to reduce school violence.
In his coaching, consulting, and therapy practice, he helps people appreciate that change is paradoxical, in that a greater understanding of what keeps a person feeling stuck is needed before sustainable change is possible. Jared works with educators to help them feeling more peaceful, whole, potent, and on a path toward greater fulfillment.
His vision for TeacherCoach is to provide educators from around the world with a wide range of integrated services around personal growth and professional development. Check out one of the books he published on education or self-improvement, take a course, or drop an email to say hello.
