Philosophy and Approach

Female SprinterOur first performance was at birth and has continued since then as part of daily life. We encounter performance situations daily, some are more important than others.

Most individuals are born with the same fundamental resources to perform most tasks, including a significant capacity to adapt in response to life events. Some individuals have more natural ability in certain areas than others. The development of our birth resources is significantly impacted by our experiences, thus, our individual performance is a result of the relationship between natural-born resources and lived experiences.

We all have the same general physiological make-up (body, brain, etc.). The capacity for human performance ability is based on the interwoven elements of physiology or heredity, genetic variation, and development experiences. We all have different developmental experiences, learning opportunities, and self-taught strategies that influence our performance. They are tightly interwoven parameters that result in individual tendencies or aptitudes, performance and individual performance potential.

Most people do not fully understand the amazing power of their own mind. We can impact desired behavioral changes and influence skill development in a variety of ways.

In my practice, I focus on building upon existing strengths and identifying and resolving blockages that impede performance. I then help my clients acknowledge these blockages and develop realistic strategies for change and improvement.

The main techniques I use to facilitate desired changes are Cognitive Behavioral Techniques, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Hypnosis. While there are additional techniques we could use, the approach we take in achieving your desired goals will depend on you and what you need.

I encourage you to learn more about each form of therapy so you will be better informed about the work we will do together.
