“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.''

“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."

"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."
