"I never lose, I either win, or I learn."
I served as the Sport Psychologist for the athletic department at Oakland University (Rochester Hills, Michigan) and later as the Clinical/Sport Psychologist for the Henry Ford Health System, where I provided a range of support for athletes, teams, and coaching staff within multiple athletic departments and professional sports organizations.
While always first promoting the mental health and well-being of the person, I then join them in developing ways to improve their preparedness for the goals they desire. I have had the pleasure of supporting athletes/performers from over thirty different contexts in their quest for higher levels of satisfaction and goal attainment, whether for leisure, competition, or occupational success. My work has included athletes/teams, performing art, and business groups ranging from high school, college, professional and Olympic levels.
My approach integrates clinical and collaborative skills to understand and respect the specific sport/performance culture and context of the client's presenting concerns. I assist the client in identifying, assessing, and developing strategies and goals necessary for developing the fundamental tools to improve mental toughness, consistency, and performance restoration following periods of setbacks, injuries, or even interpersonal/relationship stress.
Additionally, I often find it a valued necessity to work with team leaders, managers, teachers, coaches, athletic trainers, team physicians, and numerous other staff. Integration with these members often provides the best analytic fuel to move the client closer to goal success. I provide in-person appointments in my office located in Rochester Hills. Online appointments are available throughout the state of Michigan.
