ABOUT

 I am a Certified Mental Performance Consultant through the Association for Applied Sport Psychology (AASP), and an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Lehman College and Bronx Community College in the exercise science program. I have been practicing and teaching sports and exercise psychology for over ten years. As a Karate athlete, a former special forces soldier, and having worked with athletes of all ages, backgrounds, and sports including Olympians and professional athletes, I understand the challenges associated with peak performance.

I help athletes build mental toughness and perform under pressure. In my work, I teach my clients to improve their mental strength and gain a quiet mindset to maximize their potential.
