Additional Services for Athletes,
Family Members and Friends
An athlete can have it all. Stamina, endurance, skills, and a work ethic during play and out of play. However you will find that athletes can have physical, and emotional limits. It is important that athletes pre-play, play and after play obtain the support they need from loved ones. If they are close friends or a family member it is important to be involved in watching games and than when retirement sets in, it is even more important to be present and supportive as this is a huge transition and change. Players of all ages need as much support as they can get.
Often times family members and friends struggle with understanding what a player is going through, why there are changes in mood, or behavior, why the person might be getting angry or unable to focus or self regulate. I can help family members and friends through therapeutic services, provide support and guide on how to assist through difficult times.
