My credentials are Singularly Unique in the business of Sports Psychology .
As a sports psychologist, I have a unique practice in that I specialize in working with athletes who have the desire to take their game to the next level. Being a competitive athlete helps me relate to other competitive people in sports or business. My primary focus is on confidence building and the elimination of performance anxiety. I use a 3 tiered approach to training: Perspective Training, Mental Skills Training, and Applied Settings (if applicable at a sporting location). I am the only professional to offer that kind of travel service. We also offer Coaching Certification Programs for those who are interested in teaching.

In sports , it is 90% mental and 10% physical.
An athlete's life is different from other people. Does the stress of being an athlete sometimes makes you feel overwhelmed and alone? Are you expected to be almost perfect and fear you won't measure up and will get ridiculed? Are you afraid of not being "good enough" and coaches losing confidence in you? Does worrying about your performance leave you feeling overanxious? Do you have moments of overwhelming sadness but are afraid to let anyone know because you're an athlete and athletes can't show any signs of weakness, all the while feeling stressed out with no one to go to?

Trained in health and sports psychology , I've seen how people experience anxiety, depression, and shame when they feel like they're failing.
Do you feel anxious or have doubts that hold you back from achieving more in life? Perhaps you feel like a failure for not having met high expectations, those of yourself or of others. Maybe you have met those expectations and and are doing all the "right" things, but still feel unfulfilled. Or you've accomplished a goal - e.g., weight, graduation, promotion, competition, relationship - and don't know what to do next, as if the accomplishments aren't enough..

I have worked extensively through the years with clients who struggle with severe and debilitating anxiety, performance anxiety, social anxiety, athletic performance, e- sports performance , obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), emotional expression, and communication difficulties.
**Limited, expedited openings currently available for professional athletes** I’m a big believer that therapy doesn’t have to be buttoned-up or artificial. It should be comfortable and real. I prefer to facilitate a casual, collaborative, & affirming environment where we can openly discuss anything that’s on your mind and empower you to explore who you are and how you relate to others. I specialize in working working with athletes (professional and amateur), e- sports athletes, musicians, poly relationships and fellow therapists in individual, relationship, and family contexts.

I offer an integration of psychotherapy and Yoga Therapy in tandem sessions. I am both a licensed health psychologist and a certified yoga therapist. My clients tend to be high functioning adults seeking private holistic therapy and pain relief. I assist with relationships, stress, back pain, neck pain, sports injuries, physical disabilities and medical conditions. Supported yoga postures, proper alignment, and longer holds facilitate deeper feeling, fuller opening, greater release. Yoga Therapy enhances rehabilitation of injuries naturally using gravity, tensegrity and breath to improve circulation and create more space in tight joints, relieving tension and fatigue, facilitating clarity and insight.

I specialize in providing individual therapy for adolescents and adults who are struggling with anxiety, depression, stress, relationship struggles, grief, school, sports -related challenges, and more.
It can be extremely difficult to find a sense of direction and peace within this fast-paced, overly stimulating and competitive world we live in. Various aspects of our society encourage and reward burnout and perfectionism, leading to high levels of stress, insecurity, and fears of failure or not being enough. This can become extremely overwhelming and harmful when we're not mindful and compassionate towards ourselves and others. I strive to empower my clients to build the self-awareness, self-love, and coping skills they need to manage life's challenges and to lead fulfilling lives, according to their own unique goals and values.

In addition, I work with athletes and sports performance goals.
My overall goal for each client is to work on obtaining balance within a healthy lifestyle. Through obtaining balance one's symptoms can lessen and each individual and/or couple can focus on the positive attributes of their life and move forward towards reaching their goals. Daily stressors are inevitable and it is essential to build coping strategies for how to handle stress and combat negative thinking patterns. Creating behavior changes is another focal point of psychotherapy and beneficial in wanting to create a sense of structure and consistency in one's relationships and overall life.
