Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy. ~Dale Carnegie
Achieve your goals and reach your full potential
As athletes, as individuals, we all face our own unique obstacles and barriers. However, within each of us lies our most powerful asset; mental and emotional fortitude. In order to compete and succeed at the highest level requires more than genetic gifts and physical prowess. To achieve our utmost potential we must not only be physically prepared to compete, more importantly, we need to be psychologically ready as well. The most successful athletes and professionals have tapped into the benefits of sports psychology for decades.
As a lifelong competitive athlete and former Division 1 soccer player, I have come to understand firsthand how mental resilience can be the key to achieving our highest level of achievement. Now, as a licensed therapist (LICSW), I have been fortunate enough to gain firsthand knowledge, experience, and specialized training in unlocking the potential that lies within each and every one of my clients.

So what exactly is EMDR Peak Performance counseling?
Sandra Foster and Jennifer Lendl created a model of EMDR-Peak Performance/Performance Enhancement Psychology, after researching its usefulness in treating people in the corporate workplace who experience the traumatic effects of layoffs and competition. Subsequently it has been proven highly effective not only in helping corporate employees, but also performers who experience stage fright or audition anxiety and athletes who have difficulty recovering after poor performances or injuries. As a tool used to reprocess negative beliefs and experiences, performance improvement EMDR helps identify blocks and break through barriers that keep people from achieving their goals. It can be used to process specific negative experiences and set backs or pervasive issues such as procrastination, performance anxiety or self sabotaging beliefs. Once these negative blocking beliefs are identified and fully processed, we then begin to create and implement the tools and systems you need for long term success.
