Mental Performance Coaching

WHO IS THIS FOR?

The Work is the Reward

High performance and well-being do not have to be mutually exclusive. I help high performers find fulfillment in their accomplishments, life satisfaction, and cultivate an optimal relationship with passion and motivation.

Mental skills and performance coaching is for athletes, executives, and professionals looking to improve their performance, confidence, happiness, and focus.

With my unique background as a world champion endurance mountain biker, my Master’s in Applied Positive Psychology (graduating Summer 2024) from an Ivy League university and founder of the field (Marty Seligman), my graduate-level training from Vanderbilt, studying with a leading psychologist in integrative professional coaching, and over a decade of experience in mindfulness and performance psychology research, I’ve helped people find their best and have major breakthroughs in their life and performance.

Healthy striving is about playing at the intersection of high performance, health, and well-being.

My personal experience with setting process-based goals, and managing pressure and expectations at the top of the world’s stage has given me a front-row seat to how to train the mind and what it means to be in the arena, not just read about it in studies and books.

Area of Focus:

  • Healthy Striving
  • Character Strengths
  • Sustainable Motivation
  • Mindfulness
  • Resilience and Mental Toughness
  • Confidence and Impostor Syndrome
  • Career Changes
  • Flow and Goal Setting
  • Optimal Routines

I also offer my mindset academy online course that is geared toward cyclists. It teaches the core mental skills needed to thrive in sports and offers a self-paced workbook so you can work through your personal challenges on your own.
