My philosophy is that “everything starts on a mental level before it manifests itself as physical results.”
With that said, my approach is rooted in Athletic Counseling (my foundational pillar of Sport & Performance Psychology) and considers how all factors of life (i.e. mental, physical, technical, social, emotional, financial) contribute to how we behave in any given moment – or how we perform on any given day if we are athletes/soldiers. My background is working with Army Special Operation Forces, and spending 4-years as a civilian contractor at Ft. Bragg, NC as a Mental Performance Specialist before transitioning away to work remotely.
To simply put what I do, I help you recognize how your current mental approach to life is helping/hurting your progress towards your desired outcome. I work with ANY individual that is willing to identify & accept how they have built their mental, or social, structure to naturally protect themselves. However, given the design of this structure, you are either facilitating, or sabotaging your own ability to grow through life’s challenges, struggles, and events.
My goal is to assist you along your journey in hopes to help you discover the best tools & strategies to aid your progress towards a desired sense of Self.

Throughout my years as a student, athlete, competitor, and employee I have always been fascinated by the mind and the role that it plays in humans ability to perform. My curiosity for understanding human performance has lead me down a path of earning a post graduate degree in sport + performance psychology, become certified in different forms of mindfulness training, become a CrossFit Level 1 coach, achieving my Precision Nutrition Level 1 certification, and continually working to understand how to coach and collaborate with others on how to define and reach success in a variety of domains.
I have been fortunate enough to work with a variety of populations over my years as a human performance coach. Athletes ranging from youth who are just starting out up to elite collegiate and amateur level athletes in a number of sports. I have worked with the military and served as a Performance Expert with the 82nd Airborne Division at Fort Bragg in North Carolina. Whether it's volleyball, swimming, baseball, soccer, basketball, CrossFit, triathlons, weightlifting, or preparing for deployment what I have come to learn is that every individual is unique and different. There is no one size fits all approach to mental training. My passion is for helping people perform the way they know can, and doing it more consistently.
I love working with individuals and groups to identify areas to grow and systematically attacking those areas to see progress!

I am passionate about human performance and the endless possibility of where the mind can take the body. Born and raised in Upstate New York, I have always been fascinated with the essence of strength and competition. Being the youngest of three, I had ‘bigger’ and ‘better’ to constantly compete with on a daily basis. I attended Limestone College, where I studied Strength and Conditioning and Physical Education and played four years of lacrosse. Appearing in four NCAA final four tournaments, and being a national champion runner up, I was awestruck by the process of reaching goals.
During my time at Limestone, I interned with the University of Iowa and EXOS (formerly known as Athletes Performance) where I worked with high school, amateur, professional, and military athletes. After completing my masters in Human Performance at Ithaca College, I was hired on as the first Coordinator of Strength and Conditioning, overseeing 27 NCAA intercollegiate teams – working directly with football, men’s & women’s basketball, men’s & women’s lacrosse, women’s soccer, women’s tennis, and women’s golf.
I currently live in Boulder, CO, coaching within corporate wellness and youth athletics.
