In sports and other areas of life, performance demands can be exhilarating, rewarding, challenging, and heart breaking, sometimes all at once. Even at elite levels of achievement, being human means facing hurdles between ourselves and our greatest aspirations. In times like this, consultation with a well-qualified sport psychologist can uncover tools and strategies to clear the barriers to optimal experience!

I developed a passion for sport psychology as an NCAA Division I track athlete at Drake University. After college, my pursuits led me to a master’s degree in kinesiology at Kansas State University, and then to a doctoral degree in counseling psychology at the University of Iowa.   

I have worked with teams and individual athletes at the high school, collegiate, Olympic, and professional levels. My ever-growing range of clientele has included competitors from events as varied as fencing, competitive dance, equestrian, and international open water swimming, as well as professional athletes from the NBA, MLS, UFC, and USA Track and Field.

 

I am listed in the NFL Players' Association Clinician Directory, and the Mental Health Registry for the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee. Since 2018 I've been pleased to serve as the Team Psychologist for the Portland Trail Blazers.

As a licensed counseling psychologist, I provide individual psychological therapy for adults dealing with a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, relationship struggles, and life transition. I work with adolescents (age 14 to 18) on a limited basis, usually in the context of sport performance.  Sports- and performance-related issues often affect social and occupational functioning, and therefore treatment can be covered through insurance. A list of my insurance network participation can be found at the bottom of this page.

Cost to client varies with insurance plan.
