As a Performance Enhancement Coach, my focus is to create sport specific mental training programs for teams, athletes, and coaches that are individualized to each of my clients' and their sports. I fully believe that for mental skills programs to be effective, they must provide coaches and athletes with functional tools that will be used and easily applied to the work they do in their sport while playing or competing. Over the last 25 years I have been working with teams and athletes helping them find ways to create thriving performances. I am a Certified Mental Performance Consultant of The Association for Applied Sport Psychology (CMPC). I also have a Master’s Degree in Sport Psychology, a USSF ‘A’ License, and am a member of The Association for Applied Sport Psychology (AASP).

Hence, a large portion of my work is spent with athletes, whole teams, and coaches in soccer. After 20 years of coaching college soccer I have worked to diligently construct a soccer specific mental training program based on applied sport psychology techniques and practices.

My goal is to teach athletes how to effectively prepare for, and successfully navigate, competitive challenges on a day to day basis. Having worked effectively with hundreds of collegiate student-athletes, high school athletes, club sport athletes, pro players, and other elite athletes over the years, I know this approach works. My clients include Division 1 college teams across a variety of sports, PDL soccer teams, current professional soccer players, high school and club teams.

Thrive's mental training programs are solidly based on theory and have been distilled down to practical applications for athletes and coaches. I feel that my unique skill in the field of performance enhancement stems from spending 20 years on the sidelines as a collegiate soccer coach learning what tools athletes needed most in the heat of battle. Thrive's forte is providing proven, sport specific, field tested mental skills programs to athletes by creating practical and effective applications that work for coaches and athletes on their level.
