Sports and Performance Training: Maximize your performance and well-being

Our Mental Training and Performance services are designed to assist Olympic, elite, national, and developing athletes in maximizing their personal, inter-personal, and athletic potential. Together, we will create a personalized roadmap for success through dynamic and unique experiential exercises. Having taught Sport Psychology at two different colleges, and having worked with several World-Class athletes, including two future Olympians, I am confident that in learning our Core Curriculum you too will achieve a World-Class performance, and experience your “Olympic Moment.”

Typically, self-doubt and self-criticism are an athletes two worst enemies. Ironically, these roadblocks are self-imposed! My performance strategies take you away from these “gremlins” and help you focus on your unique strengths, remember your past successes (Mastery experiences), and then assist you in creating your future in advance.
