Reach greater heights

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 and performance psychologist can uncover strategies to clear the barriers to optimal experience!

Headshot of Luke Patrick PhD Sport Psychologist

Welcome to my practice!


My passion for sport psychology was sparked as an NCAA Division I track athlete at Drake University. My career pursuits then led me to a master’s degree in sport and exercise science at Kansas State University, and on to a doctoral degree in counseling psychology at the University of Iowa.   

I work with athletes at levels from college prospect to professional. My clients have included competitors from events as varied as fencing, equestrian sports, and international open water swimming. I have supported pro athletes in the NBA, NWSL, NFL, MLB, MLS, NHLUFC, 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. I'm proud to serve NCAA D1 scholar-athletes through the University of Portland Athletics Mental Health and Wellness Program.

One of the things I value most about my own sports experience, is getting to know people of widely varying backgrounds and identities. Appreciation of factors like ethnicity, spirituality, economic status, sexuality, gender identity, and sports culture, is essential to helping people thrive.


Sports are at their best when they empower us ALL to be our best!

As a licensed counseling psychologist, Dr. Patrick provides individual psychological therapy for adults dealing with a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, relationship struggles, and life transition. He works 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 often be covered through insurance. A list of insurance network participation can be found at the bottom of this page.

Cost to client varies with insurance plan.
