"Owning our STORY and loving OURSELVES through that process is the BRAVEST thing that we will ever do."
The most familiar type of therapy, individual therapy occurs on a one-on-one, face-to-face basis. Individual sessions provide a safe space and confidential relationship to explore concerns as well as create opportunities for personal growth. Athlete Insight offers both traditional "talk" therapy as well as EMDR services.
Sport Psychology/Performance Enhancement
Similar to more traditional therapy, sport psychology work occurs on a one-on-one, face-to-face basis. Individual sessions focus on building skills that allow individuals to thrive in sport and life. Athlete Insight, PC takes a person-first approach: Valuing each athlete as a person first, performer second. Sport psychology skill-building is designed to create a "toolbox" of skills for athletes to utilize when pressure is high and performance matters most.
Group therapy is less familiar to most individuals; however, it is equally as powerful as individual therapy. Group therapy provides an opportunity to receive support as well as reflect on interpersonal dynamics that may interfere with relationships and overall life satisfaction.
