BEING AT YOUR BEST WHEN IT MATTERS MOST
Stress, anxiety, high stakes, and pressure can be nerve-wracking circumstances that derail our talents and abilities. It can feel like we have no control over ourselves or the outcome we're pursuing. If you have ever frozen in fear, become overwhelmed with your work load, struggled to stay organized, or don't feel that you are achieving what you're capable of, then you may benefit from performance counseling.
I first became interested in sport and performance counseling as a high school athlete. I was competing nationally, living with my coach part-time for training, and teaching myself through online high school. Even though I reached my goal of competing in college, I didn't learn what it meant to have a healthy performance mindset until after I was frustrated, burned out, and ready to move on from competition.
Understanding the physiology of the stress response, how it interacts with our cognition, and ultimately affects our actions is fundamental in learning to respond well to challenge. I enjoy being able to combine my background of psychology, physiology, and counseling in order to tailor an approach that will best suit my clients and their individual needs.
