Mental Training Expert & Certified Positive Performance Coach

Amy's Philosophy

Everyone has the potential to do great things. The problem is that not everyone has the tools to unlock this potential and make it a reality.  My passion lies in giving athletes the mental tools that will allow them to compete at the highest level possible and achieve their dreams. I believe that by focusing on the process, the outcome will take care of itself.  While working with your athlete, we will discuss various ways of breaking through their mental barriers that include visualization, self talk, breathing and mindset training among others.

"Coach Amy provides exceptional value to the lives of our athletes each and everyday. She has a unique ability to assess situations quickly and offer concrete tools to help one be successful. She is extremely encouraging, personable and trustworthy. I feel very fortunate to have her as a part of my daughters life."

"Coach Amy understands the importance of mindfulness in any athletic arena. Her saying, "The body won't go where the mind won't allow it" has become something we say in our house before every swim meet. She has really inspired her swimmers to look at how the mind effects the body. In her calm and steady manner, she challenges young athletes to push themselves beyond their mental and physical limits, allowing them to do things they didn't think were possible. Coach Amy truly cares about the development of each and every athlete, she knows how to motivate athletes to push themselves past their limits, she stresses the importance of the mind-body connection, and she is incredibly dedicated to the young people she is coaching."
