Philip Starkman

Registered Psychotherapist, MSW, RSW
In my practice, I offer tailored support for athletes at different stages of their careers—those striving for peak performance and those transitioning into retirement. For competitive athletes, my approach integrates Mindfulness, the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Role-Playing, Imagery and Visualization, Goal Setting, and Resilience Training. This multifaceted strategy is designed to enhance focus, manage stress, refine mental rehearsal techniques, establish clear objectives, and build mental toughness. By employing these tools, I aim to assist athletes in reaching their highest potential, overcoming performance anxiety, and achieving both their short-term and long-term sporting goals. On the other hand, for athletes facing the end of their competitive careers, I provide support through Transition Coaching, alongside the continued use of Mindfulness, EFT, IFS, and CBT. This phase focuses on navigating the emotional and identity challenges that come with retirement from sports. We work on finding new purpose, adjusting to life beyond competition, and maintaining an active and fulfilling lifestyle. The goal is to ensure a smooth transition, helping retired athletes to redefine their sense of self and discover new passions and interests outside of their athletic identities. In both cases, my role is to guide and support athletes through these critical phases, offering the insights and strategies necessary for mental and emotional well-being. Whether aiming for the pinnacle of athletic achievement or embracing the next chapter after sports, I am here to facilitate a journey of growth, resilience, and fulfillment.

Ilah Brock - Central Valley Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapist, C.Ht
The heading is Sports Psychology - But, what I really think it should say is Sports Performance - That's my specific scope in this category - You have a fear of jumping too high? running too fast? getting that shot off without that little tic at the end of your swing? Lining up your iron sites and just can't seem to relax at the trigger pull? So many other areas of sports performance and confidence that you can achieve your desired sports goal. Any sport! Some conditions may warrant a medical or menthal health awareness referral.
