    Dr. Gabriel Crenshaw is a sought after on-air TV and radio personality, educator, speaker, singer/songwriter/musician, who has committed his life to observing and understanding the humanity that unites us all. For more than a decade, he has established his career around his own life's journey, which he deftly connects with the common struggles and triumphs experienced by every human being.

    He was a precocious child who grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio and at a young age he demonstrated a talent in music. Always gregarious, energetic, independent, and ambitious, he pursued undergraduate studies at the University of Cincinnati in broadcast communications; a natural progression for someone with his unique skills and penchant for building trust in others. Early in his education and career, Dr. Gabe was enormously influenced by the work of educator and entertainer, Dr. Bill Cosby. Despite his breadth of knowledge and experience in the music industry, which eventually brought Dr. Gabe to Los Angeles where he landed a record deal(Epic), he pursued a doctoral degree in clinical psychology to reach even further toward expanding his understanding of human development.

    Over the last several years, he has dedicated his studies and profession to finding ways for creating basic human connections in every corner of the globe. He is particularly adept at building bridges between the generations, as he focuses on the universal interconnectedness of all people. Dr. Gabe uses his background as a multicultural professional psychologist to talk about social concerns that many prefer to tip toe around. His goal is to have people recognize that everything they need to succeed is already within them.

    As a contributing psychologist, Crenshaw has been called upon by FOX TV's "The Ricki Lake Show," and seen as a regular on NBC's entertainment news show, "EXTRA" as "America's Best Lifechanger." He also makes appearances on other national television and radio programs (i.e., Jamie Foxx Foxxhole, Sirrius, Hannity-Fox, KNBC-TV, etc.) and print media. Look for Dr. Gabe's weekly "Mental Minute(TM)" on the Dr. Gabriel Crenshaw Youtube Channel. Or "chat it up" with the doctor every Tuesday on askdrgabe.com/Live Chat! As a gifted educator, Dr. Gabe is a proud faculty member of the Trojan Family at USC (University of Southern California), where he lectures on Neuroscience to brilliant graduate students. He also lectures on many college campuses and at conferences throughout the world. He is high octane, tremendously insightful, and always authentic. Dr. Gabe inspires us all to face our deepest fears, accept our innate brilliance, and to appreciate the transformative power of genuine self-reflection.
