“I have learned first hand how your thoughts and fears can negatively impact your performance from my years competing in track and field. What I have learned and teach others I also practice myself because of the value that I believe it holds. I believe that through mental training anyone can improve their mental game if they trust the training, are committed to the sessions, and continue to practice the skills they are taught. Contact me today and I will be thrilled to chat with you about how mental training can make a positive impact on you!” – Jenna Halvorson
