Natalie Graves' Athletic Counseling, AM, LCSW, CADC, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Chicago
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 over anxious? 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?
I help athletes be at their best on and off the field. Our work together is not only confidential but also helps you gain confidence in your sport and overall abilities. My approach is supportive without judgment or criticism. I am on your team to help you reach your highest potential.
In sports, it is 90% mental and 10% physical. Seeking help is ALWAYS a sign of MENTAL TOUGHNESS. The fear of failing, lack of confidence and self-doubt negatively affects your PERFORMANCE. These thoughts can leave you struggling. Let's work together to get your mental game tight and right. CALL ME TODAY!!!
