Find Your Dr. Zoom; Unleash Your Inner Hero!

When Dr. Zoom puts on the cape and mask, he is transformed into a confident, passionate racer who pushes through the walls of fear and doubt to achieve at the highest level. We all want to do our best and performance counseling can help!

Nicole will show you how to find your inner hero, so you can race with more passion, confidence, and spirit. After facilitating a clinical assessment of the nine mental skills of successful athletes, together you will create a treatment plan to address weaknesses. Nicole will help you increase motivation, master your fears, reduce anxiety, overall walls, and push beyond your limits using biofeedback for emotional self-regulation and stress management and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) performance enhancement protocol.
