Resolving issues from your past that block your future
Sports Psychology/Peak Performance

sportsAthletes, performers, business people, and many others have had the experience of suddenly no longer being able to perform at their expected or normal levels. Perhaps they suffered an accident. Perhaps extreme, or not so extreme, pressure has been placed on them. Perhaps a trauma from the past is making life difficult today. We have all seen pro athletes suddenly, and it seems inexplicably, unable to throw or hit a ball, a gymnast unable to perform her routine, a writer with writer’s block, a professional who falls apart every time it is the moment to present why a promotion is a reasonable choice.

For many people, once those fears set in their careers are over. But there is help. I have studied with some of the top peak performance experts who shared ways to help people not only get past their blocks, but to soar to a higher level. I have been using a most amazing and profound therapy called EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) since 2000. Sports psychology can help you to achieve the goals for which you are striving. I am also in the process of getting my certification in Sports Psychology from AASP; this certification is considered one of the most highly regarded in the Sports Psychology field. I have had the honor to watch so many of my clients heal. I am now excited to help athletes, performers, writers and so many others take their craft and skill to an even higher level.

There is hope. There is a way to change and heal. Do not give up!

Sep 20 - Communicate!
There is a myth out there, encouraged by Hollywood and romance novels, that if my partner really loved me he or she would know exactly what I want and need to be happy. And of course, the reverse to that is, since I love my partner, I know what he or she wants or needs. We know all of this without asking. Simply by loving, we can somehow acquire this knowledge.

Sep 6 - Life Continues On
As I am sitting at my desk, I am looking at the notice that someone I knew distantly has died. I just got off the phone with a nephew that is starting a new chapter in his life. These two items juxtaposed, one on top of the other, so makes clear how life continues on. Right now, as I type this, there is someone crying because a loved one has died. Right now, as I type these words, someone is crying because they are holding their newborn baby for the first time.
