Sport Psychology

Individuals participate in sport for many different reasons. What all athletes, regardless of participation level, have in common is that their sport is important to them, it enhances their life, and athletes are committed to being the best they can be. Sport Psychology and counseling can assist athletes, coaches, and family members in addressing psychological factors that impact participation and performance in sport.

Sport psychology can help to enhance the performance, personal growth, and overall well-being of athletes regardless of age or competition/participation level. Whether one is an elite, student, competitive recreational, or recreational athlete, developing mental and emotional skills to deal with issues of performance, adjustment, transitions, and relationships can maximize potential and improve overall emotional well-being.

Some issues encountered by athletes that can benefit from counseling include:

  • Motivation
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Injury recovery
  • Anger management
  • Adjustment difficulties (interpersonal, competitive level, student athletes, etc.)
  • Performance enhancement
  • Career transitions
  • Substance abuse
  • Time management
  • Athletic burnout
