Sports Health: Sports Psychology

Think athletic performance is all about the strength and agility of your body? Think again.

Your body and mind work together in complex and surprising ways to deliver the performance you expect. 

Our sports psychology specialist consults with athletes at all levels to understand their goals and barriers to optimal performance. Consultations may lead to psychological counseling and support for:

  • Smoking cessation
  • Behavioral weight management
  • Behavioral pain management
  • Traumatic Stress (PTSD)
  • Adjustment to Injury
  • Substance abuse
  • Visualization and performance improvement
  • Motivation and readiness to return counseling

Sports psychology isn’t only available when there’s an obvious issue that needs to be solved. Our sport psychologists can also help athletes cope with the pressures of competition, maintain a rigorous training regimen and develop mental strategies like relaxation and visualization.
