With extensive training in Sports and Performance Psychology, as well as experience as an athlete herself, Amy is uniquely equipped to help individuals more easily navigate high standards and perform in front of audiences, as well as develop and maintain a public “face” or identity when needed. Amy helps individuals develop the skills necessary to strengthen their focus and precision, as well as their enjoyment and love of the process.
Like all of us, athletes experience highs and lows, as do non-athletes who are musicians, dancers, actors, public speakers, executives and others in performance or competitive roles. During the lows, we may feel uncoordinated, tongue-tied, panicked and lacking confidence, while during the highs, our thought process, energy and speech seem effortless, as though they just flow. Amy helps clients learn effective psychological techniques to help them spend more of their time in this experience of flow, with a strengthened sense of well-being and confidence.
