WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

Professional Football Player in the CFL

“Lisa has been a big help to me over the last few years on and off the field.  Off the field she has helped me understand that anger is an emotion that is natural.  It’s not that we aren’t supposed to feel it we just have to learn how to react properly when it does.  On the field she has helped me be calmer when adversity hits.  I used to be a guy once one bad thing happens I would spiral.  Now I’m not perfect but I have gotten better because of the tools that Lisa has given me to exercise.”

Ellen Ebbers 
Saint Mary’s College 
Softball Player 

“With Lisa’s support, my confidence in myself has grown so much. I also have learned to appreciate the little things my sport has given me. She has really helped me slow down and be where my feet are, rather than plan everything before it happens. The trust I have in my emotions has grown as well. I feel a lot more consistent when I hit the field now thanks to our work together!”

Parent of a collegiate softball player

“As a parent of a student athlete, Lisa has been a godsend. My daughter was always a hard worker and a skilled athlete, but her mental game and confidence grew leaps and bounds working with Lisa. In addition, she helped her build skills to cope with the stresses of being a student athlete and life in general.”

Interim Head Athletic Trainer

Mental Health Coordinator

“Having AthMindSet be a part of our support staff has been an instrumental part of our athletes care. Lisa and her team have provided our student athletes additional resources to help with both on field mental performance and off field mental health. Working with Lisa has been a wonderful experience and she has been so adaptable to our needs as well as our student athletes needs.''

Sonja Garnett

Saint Mary’s College

Head Softball Coach

“AthMindset has become a part of our team and is helping our athletes navigate the challenges they face on and off the field. Our athletes who have been able to work one on one with mental performance consultants and mental health clinicians, not only provide great feedback,  but their progress shows up daily. I feel as a team and staff we are better equipped to support our athletes and provide the tools they need to master the mental side of the game."

Vanessa Austin

Professional Basketball Player

Bembibre, Spain

"Before meeting with Lisa I kind of lost myself as a basketball player. I didn’t really know why I was playing anymore, I lost all confidence in myself, and I didn’t trust myself. Basketball felt foreign to me, I was at an all time low. But as I continued to see her I gained new skills that helped me find the love for the game again and I started to gain my confidence back and have a nice free flowing feel for the game. I haven’t felt like this since I started playing basketball and I gotta say it feels really good! As I continue on this journey with her I hope that I can build a solid foundation of trust, confidence, and assurance in myself."
