What is a Sport Psychologist?
As a Sport and Performance Psychologist, I train athletes and other performers to develop the mental toughness and competitive edge needed to excel in their chosen fields. My background as a Psychologist gives me the tools to help you unleash your greatest potential both in performing and in living. My practice is based in Massachusetts at Boston Sport & Performance Psychology, but all services are offered remotely. I work with athletes at every level and across sports, as well as non-athlete performers such as executives/businesspeople, musicians, performing artists, and speakers/actors.
