Guests & Co-Hosts

Kevin O’Neill

Kevin O’Neill is our Wednesday morning sports guy. His segment emphasizes what happens off the field as much as what happens on the field. All businesses have their intrigue, but the inner workings of sports organizations find their way into the public domain frequently. Unless a rant from the Chief spills into Kevin’s segment (not an unusual occurrence), he will highlight some of those sports related business issues; but be advised that those highlights usually come with an opinion.

Dr. Mark Johnson

Dr. Mark Johnson works with the best people who are curious about themselves, their world and their relationships. Roughly 2/3 of his practice is focused on individuals with the remaining 1/3 being couples. His best “fit” is with clients who expect to work, are active, verbal and want to be in an interactive therapy. Dr. Johnson freely shares the “map” that he’s working from as they go. A central goal is to access authenticity so that therapy addresses struggles in clarifying what people want, know, think and feel.

He specializes in relationships. To that end, his work looks at your responses to both inner and outer authority, your development of intimacy with others, and ultimately, how you cooperate with the important people in your world in order to have gratifying relationships.

With over 25 years of private practice experience, Dr. Mark Johnson feels comfortable knowing how to navigate through difficult times and spaces with the people he sees. There’s a premium on you having equal footing in the process and being able to claim your own authority going forward.
