Phone/Skype Consults

I did several phone sport psychology sessions with Ryan while I was in Korea training for the Olympics in short track speedskating. Despite the 14 hour time difference and my heavy training schedule, we were able to talk consistently thanks to his flexibility and willingness to adjust. Following our sessions, I was able to employ the strategies he taught me, making me noticeably calmer during races and leading to significantly better results. I was also able to think through strategies and adopt new ones much quicker than before, which increased my focus and confidence. I learned much more than I anticipated and I'm confident the skills I gained will be retained over time because they're effective and I'm motivated to keep practicing them. I highly recommend Ryan to any athlete looking to increase their mental game skills.

Often times, athletes are not able to make it to my office due to their schedule or being out-of-state or out-of-the country. I can provide an effective mental game plan to change an athlete’s approach via phone or skype. Sessions are 50 minutes and include typed notes and suggested homework in between sessions.

To see the types of issues that are addressed during sessions, please select: “Mental Game Coaching,” underneath “Sports Psychology” on the home page.
