The fine line between excellence and error lies in the individual’s ability to maintain focus, manage anxiety, concentrate under pressure and execute plans. When the competition or challenge is tough, who wins or loses depends more on errors and the lack of consistency. Having an “off day” is a psychological matter that results in failure.
I can help you systematically acquire and develop the mental skills and emotional control necessary to be at your best with greater consistency. If your performance is suffering from various distractions, lack of confidence, dimming motivation, burnout, or simply misdirected plans, I can help you get on track.
Excellence is achieved through cultivating oneself in a holistic way. Regardless of whether it is in career, relationships, sports or performing arts, these all require one to balance his or her life and social roles to be effective. What is vital to actualizing one’s potential is that we take aim at positive health and wellness with a focus on solutions rather than only on ameliorating problems. Certainly, there are strategies to help one overcome problems like “choking at clutch times,” performance anxiety (e.g., stage-fright), self-punishing, and self-doubt. By attending to mental, physical, social and emotional issues collectively, we can get you performing better than ever and finding more self-fulfillment in the process.
I specialize in stress and anxiety management, resiliency, and interpersonal skills. As a veteran public safety professional, my work in law enforcement, fire, and emergency pre-hospital care taught me and tested me how to perform under pressure. As a life-long athlete and fitness expert, I have competed in team sports such as soccer, ice hockey, basketball, volleyball and baseball. I have also raced bicycles, competed as a powerlifter, and fought as martial artist in both sport and full-contact competitions. I am also a performing artist with a background in percussion, brass and some voice, as well as, some experience in theater. My professional background and education in psychology give me the knowledge, skills and abilities to assist you in stretching yourself toward your potential.
