Providing Tools & Techniques in Enhancing A Growth Mindset


Acknowledgement to Tim Herzog for the group format. 

Group mentorship toward CMPC Certification and/or general professional development for mental performance consultants.

Professional isolation, particularly in smaller communities and in relation to a specialty practice domain, presents real challenges to the ethical practitioner (Wood, at al., 2005). Mental performance coaches need mentorship, not just to check a box for achieving certification, but also for:

  • Identifying goals and action plans for advancing professionally
  • Obtaining mentorship hours toward certification in a manner that is both enjoyable and more cost-effective
  • Developing or honing your own theory of optimal performance
  • Engaging personal and professional growth
  • Feeling grounded while growing
  • Addressing practical aspects of delivering mental performance consulting in varied settings/situations
  • Understanding complex cases, and how to navigate conceptualization and intervention ethically and pragmatically
  • Connecting with a group of trusted peers with a facilitator to ensure productive dialogue
  • I am now doing both group and individual mentorship work and some of this work is related to assisting Tim Herzog, who was doing this also, as he takes on new challenges.

I am in the process of assembling a group, likely beginning in March, 2024, and meeting virtually 10 times through the course of the next year (time will be selected using a Doodle poll). 

If we can assemble a good group of 5-7 people (recent graduates from masters or doctoral programs, and more seasoned providers, including both licensed and unlicensed practitioners), who will meet monthly (virtually) for 10 months, I will move this forward. Fee will be $600 for all 10 meetings.

If interested, please email me at complete this contact form (asking any questions you might have in the process). And please share with friends!

Look forward to connecting!!

My Background for Those Interested:

I have been in private practice for over 20 years, and am a licensed psychologist in the state of Wisconsin. I am also part of PSYPACT. I have been CMPC since 2016 and am on the USOPC Sport Psychology Registry and Mental Health Registry.

I have been providing mental health and sport psychology services for the University of Wisconsin – Madison Athletic Department (UWAD) in some capacity since 2003. I helped to create an onsite program and was the first Director of Clinical and Sport Psychology at the UWAD. I was faculty at the University of Wisconsin – Madison for many years, often teaching courses in the Master’s in the Program for the Department of Rehabilitation Psychology.

I continue to work with athletes at high school, college and pro or national levels. I also work with high professionals in highly competitive environments, such as those in medical, legal and business roles. I really enjoy working with high performers in these diverse realms.
