As a sports counselor and former athlete, I specialize in working with athletes as they work through issues related to sport and how they are connected to the hardships of life. You might be facing the unique trials of an Olympian or professional athlete, balancing life as a collegiate or high school student athlete, or navigating the difficulties of youth sport. I’m here to help process your story while working with you through the many challenges that life and athletics has in store.
Whether you are facing a mental health concern, could use some extra support, or seek meaningful growth, I want to be a part of helping you strive towards pursuing mental/emotional health and well-being, achieving your goals, and overcoming tough circumstances both on and off the field. Adversity in sport can impact every area of daily functioning just as adversity in life can seriously impact the ability to perform well in sport. I would be honored to walk with you through these challenges.
Following my experiences as an athlete, I sought to learn what makes athletes unique and to support athletes in their efforts to excel in sport and life. While we spend most of our time training for the physical aspects of sport, mental health is so often the key that allows us to unlock our potential. Whether navigating sports at the youth or professional level, it is my goal to support each athlete through the unique stressors they may face in sport and life.
Your goals may be to experience growth or address sport-specific stress, general anxiety and/or mood, or other mental health concerns. I strive to provide services, supported by research, to address the mental health goals of each athlete. Together, we can navigate mental health concerns so that you can thrive in and out of competition.
