What is Mental Performance Coaching?

Maximize the Mind coaches train clients to be mentally prepared so that when something doesn’t go as planned, they can respond not react!

We’ve revolutionized how to thrive in high pressure situations. We believe in teaching scientific strategies that are thoroughly researched & proven to get results.

This is not therapy & it doesn’t mean something is wrong with you when you seek mental skills training. It’s all about learning coping skills so you can handle tough situations.

Transform how you manage your emotions so that you achieve your goals!

We’ve worked with every ability level & sport you can imagine & thoroughly enjoy serving youth through professionals.

Developing strong mental skills is often the difference between an average athlete & an elite athlete. Athletes spend so much time training physically, but are rarely taught how to respond to difficult situations. 

You don’t have to be born with it. You can become the competitor you envy. Mental game is something you develop.

A lot of athletes become easily frustrated, second guess themselves, worry about judgment, have had a tough injury, fear messing up, or have a hard time just calming their nerves. They’re all talented, but they need to learn strategies to have fun again & get over mistakes quicker, so they don’t get burned out. We reach our performance potential, not by talent alone, but by training the mind to manage our emotions.

Have you worked so hard to perfect your talent & yet you still struggle to consistently compete at your best? You need these tools & coaching!

Mental Performance Coaching is teaching sport psychology concepts to athletes & performers. 

It’s more than positive self talk; it’s understanding how the brain holds onto memories, rewiring the brain’s thought patterns, & learning how to get your subconscious to work for you. It is possible to change how you think to change how you compete!

Common Problems We Help Solve

Results our clients are raving about

"Ashley has helped me find my voice and happiness in life again!" - R.R.

“My daughter has seen amazing benefits. Her mental toughness in gymnastics has improved significantly, and her impressive ability to focus mentally is something she has gained with Ashley’s assistance. Ashley provided my daughter with the ability to overcome mental blocks and to maintain a positive attitude through each event. Taking my daughter to Ashley was one of the best decisions we ever made for her gymnastics career!”

– Michelle 

“Ashley has given me effective tools to overcome anxiety, my fear of being judged, and really help eliminate my excessive worry. She is welcoming and easy to talk to. It became immediately evident that she deeply cares about her clients and because of her experience in doing this for many years, she manages to deliver results. I always leave every session motivated!” – B.T.

What do I want athletes to know? I think it's hard to ask for help sometimes, I think it's hard to get to know someone new, I think it's hard to trust someone you don't know... I've created an environment of trust, connection, rapport, energy, & authenticity #SportsPsychology

I use a lot of the same teaching methods in my group work as well as 1:1 sessions. I have found a way to personalize my workshops & group trainings through my framework because I know how important connection & accountability are!
