The Podium Awaits
I help athletes make sense of what's going on in their heads, cut through the noise, and unleash their inner tiger.
Increasing emotional intelligence helps you build a toolkit to show up with courage and confidence when it matters most.
For this to happen, we must do heart work. Why? Because that's where the truth is, and the truth will set you free. The truth is, Mental Toughness is NOT about getting rid of our negative feelings. Mental Toughness is about managing ALL thoughts, feelings and emotions. They are called feelings because we are supposed to feel them. What a concept!
Building a toolkit helps manage what's going on in your head AND heart. It equips you to face and handle the storms that inevitably arise in the pursuit of your goals and dreams.
I work with athletes of all ages and sports, from novices to experts. And because it takes a village, I also work with parents, coaches, and leaders.

Because winning matters in sport and business, I'm a corporate coach, leadership coach, life coach, and motivational speaker.
