Mental Health Therapy for Athletes in Eastchester, NY

Sports Psychology Therapist

I help athletes stress less and improve their sports performance.

Do you ever:

  • Question your ability to be successful as an athlete?

  • Have negative thoughts that affect how you play?

  • Struggle with panic attacks that are effecting your performance?

  • Feel tense and tight in your body and can't relax when you play?

  • Feel depressed and miss when playing sports used to be fun?​

I've been there.  I played football for ___ years so I totally get the specific stressors that athletes go through.  It's a different world and a different way of thinking.  Everyone always talks about the mind body connection, and the same applies in the world of sports.

  • Learn tools specifically for athletes to stress levels that impact performance

  • Learn how to relieve tension and tightness that impacts physical performance

  • Improve their focus and concentration and manage distractions

  • Get rid of panic attacks 

Some of the approaches I take that are proven effective in sports psychology are:
