Announcement icon I'm offering all sessions online with an "intensive" format option. Let's get you back in the game! Schedule your free consult today.
Are you a college student athlete who desires to do well on & off the field? I bet you can relate to the following unique challenges: You’re practicing, competing, juggling team obligations, and you’re a full-time student. You’re also figuring out who you’re becoming as a person. Add to this, facing unexpected challenges in your sport, it can be unsettling. Things like: Being injured and having everything up in the air, not getting the playing time you expected, getting "stuck in your head" and it influencing your performance, or adjusting to new teammates or coaching styles. You may be facing some challenges, but you've got pluck.
Due to our collegiate sport experience and training in sport psychology, my team and I have a unique way to help athletes thrive on and off the field. We’ll start right where you are and custom create action steps that fit your goals. You'll get a personalized Complete Mental Game Plan to help you bring your best performance to every performance.
If the following sounds like you, chances are we’ll work well together! You care about both your athletics and your academics. You're self-motivated. You realize that ultimately “the fire must come from within." You have grit and moxie. You're open to new ways of thinking, doing, and being. You're excited to do the work and you want to laugh along the way!
