Sports Psychology to Harness the Zone
At the forefront of fitness and performance.
Think of an Olympic diver on the edge of the diving board; a golfer poised to make the winning shot; a professional athlete tuning out the cheers and jeers of the crowd.
These are moments when athletic prowess and mental focus align for peak performance.
Mental Game Coaching teaches you to access the zone on command.
You want every minute to count. You want concrete, immediate results. Who doesn’t, right? Wins are on the line.
Whether you are a professional athlete (or an entire team) getting ready for the next big game, a high school athlete looking to garner attention from recruiters and scouts or a competitor aiming to achieve your personal best, Mental Game Coaching with a licensed Sports Psychologist can give you the edge you need to succeed.

Together we’ll look at conquering any big detractors and attack the more nuanced things that interfere with performance. As a clinical psychologist and a competitive athlete I help you cut to the chase, set priorities, visualize and achieve your goals.
You’re strong. You’ve trained. You're skilled. Here’s how to go from great to extraordinary.
You are used to training. We’ll add another layer with specific techniques for centering, visualization and tools to cope with anxiety and build self-confidence. We will break down and reframe past events so you are empowered, confident and prepared for your next approach.
Mental Game Coaching is tailored to the individual. That’s why we start with a personal assessment. Maybe you are distracted or experience self-doubt. Or it’s the “p’s”…perfectionism, procrastination or performing under pressure. We’ll uncover whatever is stopping you and work with you to overcome these and other critical performance issues.
How Mental Game Coaching Can Help with Youth Sports

Jiu Jitsu Competitor
“As an active competitive Jiu Jitsu player, I spend a lot of time preparing for competition through strength and conditioning and Jiu Jitsu training. The one area that I was not spending much time was on mental preparation.
After a few sessions with Dr. Steingraber, I could already see improvement in my confidence and my approach to mental preparation. I was able to step onto the mat at major Jiu Jitsu competitions feeling relaxed, focused and ready to win.
I would highly recommend Dr. Steingraber to athletes looking to get an edge over their competition.”
Your investment in you.
How many sessions will you need? Optimal results are personal. People typically invest in 6 to 12 sessions, coming in weekly or bi-weekly, to work on a specific outcome or event and build a strategy. Anyone can learn to ride a bike. But if you want to compete in the Tour de France you need a long-term strategy.
