Your Journey, Our Guidance

At Elite Psychology and Wellness in Scottsdale Arizona, we work with athletes to develop their confidence in themselves and their performance. We work to support the athlete both in and out of their sport so that the athlete can succeed in all areas of their life.

Sure, we know you have confidence after winning the big game, but we want to give you the confidence to succeed before, during, and after the game!

What Is Athlete Identity? Why Does It Matter?

Athlete identity is a very real concept and for most athletes their whole identity wrapped up in their sport. When sport becomes everything to the athlete, there is a lot to lose, there are a lot of pressures and the performance in the sport and the sport itself becomes everything.

Certain fears and stress-related pressures to succeed can cause athletes to underperform or lose focus and concentration while performing. In these situations, athletes can sometimes second guess themselves. They find themselves having more performance anxiety.

Why Choose Elite Psychology And Wellness?

At Elite Psychology and Wellness, our sports performance providers will work with you to learn the coping strategies you need to reduce performance anxiety, reduce the stressors in your mind so that you can manage and succeed as an athlete. We will explore your athlete identity and help support the development of it and the development of other areas of your life too.

At Elite Psychology and Wellness, we know what athlete identity is. We know what makes up an athlete. How the dedication, passion and drive are part of your success and how sometimes those very things can take a toll on the athlete and cause increased feelings of perfectionism and isolation. At Elite Psychology and Wellness, we support athletes in the Scottsdale and the Phoenix metro area. We don’t just treat the person. We treat the athlete because we understand the athlete. We understand the unique nature and characteristics that make you the athlete you are.

Let us help you gain the performance skills you need to succeed!
