I am a certified sport psychology consultant with knowledge and experience in the psychological aspects of performance. My role as a mental coach is based in my interest in opportunities to help others maximize their potentials through growth and challenge. My experience as a teacher and coach, coupled with formal education and training in sport psychology should prove to be valuable to those looking for serious guidance and leadership in reaching higher levels of performance. I am a member of the APA's Division 47, as well as a Certified Mental Performance Consultant (CMPC) with the Association of Applied Sport Psychology (AASP).
My services are concentrated in providing consultation and coaching of mental skills that overcome barriers or enhance growth by targeting performance & well-being.
My professional approach is rooted in Cognitive, Humanistic, and Positive Psychology theories. Simplified, addressing the cognitive, emotional, and behavioral dynamics involved in high levels of performance. I work to first understand your strengths, help you understand what might be prohibiting you from maximizing your potential, and then returning to your strengths with new tools that help you to perform at a higher level.
I have served as a sport specific coach for over 30 years ranging from youth to Olympic level athletes. I also worked for six years as an athletic director, and have held leadership roles within the California Interscholastic Federation and Sac-Joaquin Section. These experiences have given me unique insight and experience in understanding the pressures of performance and competition for athletes and coaches alike. Additionally, I have spent time working with local physical therapists and clients to assist athletes in rehabilitation efforts.
For professional clarity, my services are not intended as treatment for psychological disorders. Should significant issues of mental health arise, I will make referral for appropriate care.
