You're an accomplished, hard worker, and people think you have it all together. But your internal voice reminds you that you feel inadequate, and you may struggle with sadness, anxiety, or anger. Perhaps you have unresolved trauma. You work hard to hide your deepest thoughts and feelings, and it's exhausting. You overanalyze your perceived flaws and past experiences. Perhaps you withdraw or lash out at loved ones. You try to push down negative feelings by staying busy and focusing on other things, but you don't feel so good inside when things are quiet. You feel "off". You're tired of living this way and ready for a change.

I am an eclectic therapist that combines emotion-focused strategies with psychotherapeutic evidence-based approaches. The underlying principles in my approach are that treating anxiety, depression, self-esteem and more can be traced to experiences, beliefs of shame, and other negative core beliefs in an individual. Finding out these aspects of a person’s life, naming them, and working through them are components of her counseling process. I believe in providing a holistic counseling therapy process so you live a wholly present, healthy life.

For as long as you can remember, your child’s been an anxious kid. You hoped they’d grow out of it, but it only seems to get worse. Getting them to school each day is a tear-filled struggle and you're struggling with how to help them. They spend more time in the office asking to go home than they does in class. Every anxious experience limits thieir world further. You try your best to accommodate their feelings, but you worry you’re making things worse. It’s getting to the point where all they seems comfortable doing is playing alone at home. Something has to change.

Sports Performance Therapists

How does sports psychology work?

Sports psychology helps athletes identify and overcome challenges, such as perfectionism or a fear of failure, and improve key mental skills, such as confidence or concentration. By applying principles and techniques from psychology, such as goal-setting, visualization, positive self-talk, and emotion regulation, sports psychologists help athletes improve their performance on the field and their well-being overall.

How long does treatment for a sports-related problem take?

The duration of sports psychology treatment depends on the athlete’s individual challenges, goals, the complexity of the interventions used, and even on the length of the season. A performance anxiety issue may be treated with a short-term treatment, like Cognitive behavioural therapy, while issues such as depression, substance abuse, or severe anxiety may require longer-term treatments.

How effective is treatment for sports performance problems?

Sports psychology has been shown to improve performance and help athletes manage their emotions. Sports psychology can be effective in boosting performance, team dynamics, and injury rehabilitation. Over the past decade, nearly every professional sports team in every major sport has added a sports psychologist to its staff. Many colleges have done the same, and even some high school programs have done the same. Olympic hopefuls may consult with sports psychologists starting in elementary school.

What are the limitations of sports psychology?

Sports psychology may have several limitations. Every athlete is unique and may respond differently to sports psychology treatments. Therapy can help an athlete reach their potential; it can help athletes cope with injury and pain, but it cannot change the physical limitations that may be affecting an athlete’s performance.
