Why do I need team empowerment coaching?

The daily pressures scholar and professional athletes experience can result in an exorbitant amount of emotional distress. Time demands, commitment to perfecting their skills, and performance anxiety or frustration can also contribute to increased stress and discord in other areas of their lives. 

Helping players to develop in all areas of their lives: emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually is paramount to mental wellness and performance enhancement. Colleges, universities, and major league athletic programs will benefit from the support of Empowerment Coach and Licensed Couple, Marriage & Family Therapist Dr. Lauren Pitts. Dr. Pitts’ services will provide dual assistance designed to improve athletic performance and mental wellness through an integrative, holistic, strength-based, and systemic approach.

Why do I need individual and/or relationship coaching?

Simple everyday stressors can strain any relationship or family. Major sources of stress may threaten the stability of relationships. The added pressure scholar & professional athletes and their families endure can leave families and their members deeply fractured. Most relationship problems are manageable but when challenges are left unaddressed, tension mounts, poor habits develop or resurface, and the health and longevity of the relationship(s) are in jeopardy the result can be relationships ending and families left in ruins.
