Feel confident going into performance opportunities, knowing you are prepared.

Better understand your reactions and mental blocks to peak performance.

Enjoy not only the outcome but also the process of reaching your goals.


To make this


Focus on Collaboration and Connection

You’ve already gained expertise in your sport or your field, so we will partner to get you where you want to go. I will help you understand mental blocks that are getting in the way of your success and enjoyment.

Use Our Time to Practice Skills

Just like you train your body, you also need to train your mind. Think of our sessions as a mental gym - we will practice various strategies to improve focus, calm nerves, and increase motivation. Potential exercises may include breathing techniques, thought analysis, gratitude, and goal setting.

Consider and Incorporate Context, Culture, and Systems

Every sport, activity, and workplace has a different culture with expected norms, routines, and interactions. We will consider how they impact your struggles and find ways to leverage them for success.

Start With Your Existing Strengths and Identify New Ones

You have so many strengths that have gotten you this far. We will start with what you do well to determine how your strengths can continue to help get you where you want to go. Part of our work together will also include uncovering more strengths that you didn’t even know you had!

Additional areas of 

There are some difficulties I have expertise in that are nested within peak performance therapy.

Working through Injury

Injuries can be a devastating and unexpected setback. Peak performance therapy can help you develop tools to cope with your injury and help you relate to your body and sport in different ways to set yourself up for a successful recovery.

Retirement and Sport Transitions

Transitioning out of sport (whether forced or chosen) or transitioning into a new competitive environment (like becoming a collegiate athlete) can cause a lot of competing emotions. Peak performance therapy can help you better understand your reactions and navigate these transitions with more ease.

Performance Anxiety

Feeling anxious before a competition is a normal reaction, but it can sometimes feel like it takes over and stops you from performing as you do in practice. Peak performance therapy can help you use strategies to calm your body and your mind. See my Anxiety Therapy page for more information.

Frequently asked


  • How do I know if I have anxiety?
    Everyone has anxiety from time to time. However, an anxiety-related diagnosis generally involves a lot of worry that impacts your life. While you don’t need a formal anxiety disorder to benefit from anxiety therapy, we can work on identifying a formal diagnosis if this is helpful for you.
  • What is the difference between stress and anxiety?
    It can be hard to know the difference between stress and anxiety. Stress is often isolated to a particular trigger and does not last as long, while anxiety can be focused on many things and be longer-lasting. However, there can be a negative impact from both stress and anxiety when experienced long-term. Regardless of whether you are experiencing stress or anxiety, anxiety therapy can help!
  • How often will we meet?
    We can meet every week or every other week. During our first session, we will discuss a schedule that works best for you. As you find relief from your anxiety, we can reduce session frequency as needed.
  • What will we do in session?
    Every session is focused on what will be most helpful for you. I strive to make conversations casual and connecting. We may discuss how things have been since our last meeting, situations in which you felt anxious, or strategies to manage your anxiety.
  • Will anxiety therapy involve medication?
    While medication may be recommended in some cases, anxiety therapy primarily focuses on non-medication-based approaches. I will work with you to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that may include therapy techniques, lifestyle modifications, and, if necessary, collaboration with a psychiatric medication provider for medication management.
  • How do we get started?
    You’ll start by filling out my Introduction Form. Then, we can have a free 15-minute meeting to make sure it is a good fit if you would like. From there, we will have our first session, which lasts 75 minutes so we can get to know each other and develop a plan to help you meet your goals.
