About My Services
I help athletes on many levels, but my primary focus is to help athletes improve mental and emotional skills such as focus, confidence, resilience, emotion regulation, motivation, mindfulness, and distress tolerance. These skills can help with many aspects of an athlete's every day lives such as coping with high demands of training, performing well under pressure, gaining a competitive edge, and confronting challenges such as stress, injury, or other adversity.
In addition to mental and emotional skills training, I can provide individualized fitness and nutrition coaching. As a certified personal trainer and sports nutritionist, I can develop strength and nutrition plans with athletes to aid their overall training. I believe that the strongest athletes are those who train both their body and their mind. I am also a certified endurance coach and have expertise in coaching runners in endurance events, particularly the half-marathon and marathon.
Who can benefit from my services?
All athletes need mental and emotional skills to reach their peak potential. Unlike the physical and technical aspects of a sport however, many athletes are never taught or trained in this area. Mental and emotional skills training will help athletes at every level rather it's through helping you learn to maintain focus and motivation, learning to balance your sport with other aspects of your life to stay healthy and happy, or taking yourself to the next level in competition by giving yourself a mental edge. Below are a number of things we may address in mental and emotional skills training
Please note, that while mental and emotional skills training can help improve mood and reduce anxiety, it is not a treatment for mental health disorders. In many cases skills coaching may help support someone who is experiencing mental health difficulties, but only when in the combination of therapy or treatment with a licensed professional.
