Personalized Coaching to Help You Heal
during your injury, illness, or surgery recovery process
with someone who has been through it personally and
not only survived but actually thrived!
“Sport Psychology is not just for athletes anymore!”
® Sue Hasker, 2009
Why Injury Recovery Coaching?
My wish for you is that you have the best injury and/or surgery recovery possible. My signature coaching style comes from years of training in a variety of techniques, but my passion comes from years of healing from a traumatic injury and all of the confusing thoughts, emotions, and sensations that have accompanied the injury. My experiences coupled with extensive study of resources in the psychological effects of injury, mind-body connection, sport psychology, wellness coaching, grief recovery, and strategies for lasting change make me uniquely qualified to help others who are recovering from injury, surgery, or other types of life changes or loss.
Along with our personalized telephone coaching sessions which take place either once a week or every other week depending on your schedule and needs, you will be given the materials to create your own Healing Journal which includes handouts, articles, worksheets, tools, and journaling options to help you create goals and action step reminders, track your progress, make notes of questions to ask your medical team, jot down your thoughts and feelings about your experiences, and find quick reference information for your physician, pharmacy, medical history, and insurance data during your surgery preparation and/or injury recovery process.
As a PECI Certified Performing Edge® Coaching Professional, I’ll teach you proven techniques based in sport psychology to:
- Create smart goals to support a complete recovery
- Improve focus so you can work through the discomfort of physical therapy and daily tasks
- Use visualization techniques to see yourself fully recovered and getting back to your life
- Practice stress management techniques to deal with physical and emotional setbacks
- Stay motivated through challenges to keep you moving forward
I have trained directly with Dr. JoAnn Dahlkoetter, best-selling author of YOUR PERFORMING EDGE; licensed clinical psychologist; sport psychologist to Olympic athletes, physicians, and executives; former medical staff member at Stanford University Medical Center; and world-class champion athlete.
