... in mental skills training took hold as a 15 year old competitive swimmer. Having already gone through ten years of early morning practice and chlorinated skin, the mental and emotional obstacles of training caused me to seek help from a sport psychologist.
During our sessions I felt in awe that someone's entire profession could consist of connecting with, teaching and motivating clients as both people and budding athletic warriors. I found myself thinking ...
I want to do THIS when I grow up!
Now almost two decades later, it brings me incredible joy each time I have the opportunity to pay forward the support, dedication and training I've received over the years.
Therefore at [Mental] Gear Closet...
I work from a passion to connect with people honestly and authentically, channeling my years of experience as a competitive athlete and musician, student of sport psychology and licensed therapist to provide YOU-centered sessions ... Your story. Your goals. Your success.
