Dr. Sachs is a Virginia Beach native - born, raised, and educated in the public school system - Providence Elementary, Kempsville Middle, Kempsville High - Class of 1997. His wife Jenny ("Dr. J") is also a PhD psychologist, specializing in all areas of therapy but especially addictionology and interventions. His son Sam is an eight-grader who loves dogs and skiing, and wants to be a veterinarian. Dr. Sachs has received degrees from VCU, UVA, Umass-Amherst, and Harvard.
Dr. Sachs carries medical licenses in North Carolina and Virginia, and with telehealth, he can reach anyone in these two states as long as the patient has an internet connection (phone or computer) and access to the Zoom app. He combines medication management and therapy in almost every session. His particular area of interest is ADHD, in children and adults. When not behind his webcam, you might find him and his family on the beach. He's a "little" obsessed with Dave Matthews Band and UVA basketball.
