Therapy for NY
I understand the unique challenges that athletes face both on and off the field, and I am here to provide a safe and supportive environment for you to explore these challenges and develop strategies to manage them.
As an athlete, you may be facing a range of physical and emotional stressors that can impact your mental health and well-being. Some of the issues that may come up in therapy include:
Performance anxiety: Athletes often experience performance anxiety, which can lead to stress, self-doubt, and negative thought patterns. We will work on developing strategies to manage performance anxiety and improve your mental toughness.
Injury recovery: Injuries are a common part of an athlete's life, and the recovery process can be emotionally challenging. We will work on developing coping mechanisms to manage the emotional impact of injuries and develop strategies to support your physical recovery.
Relationship issues: Athletes may also face challenges related to maintaining relationships, both on and off the field. We will work on developing healthy communication skills and exploring any underlying emotional issues that may be impacting your relationships.
Self-esteem and self-worth: Athletes often have a strong identity tied to their sport, which can lead to challenges related to self-esteem and self-worth when faced with setbacks or injuries. We will work on exploring your personal identity and values, while also addressing any challenges related to self-esteem and self-worth.
Transitioning out of sports: For professional athletes, retirement or transitioning out of sports can be a significant life change that can lead to emotional challenges. We will work on developing strategies to navigate this transition and explore new personal and professional goals.
In therapy, we will use a range of approaches that are tailored to your specific needs and goals. Some of the approaches we may use include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), which can help you identify and challenge negative thought patterns, and mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), which can help you manage stress and improve your mental resilience.
I am committed to providing a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental environment for you to explore your thoughts, feelings, and experiences. I understand that being an athlete can be a challenging and overwhelming experience, and I want to help you navigate these challenges while prioritizing your mental health and well-being.

Remember, seeking help is a sign of strength, and you deserve to prioritize your mental health and well-being.
