The Mental Approach was created to help athletes, coaches, and business professionals close the gap between their potential performance and their actual performance. TMA utilizes the teaching of mental skills to help people in their performance realms to be more successful and develop lifelong skills to improve their overall ability to deal with cognitive/mental challenges that sports and life may present to them.
Some of the skills that are utilized to teach clients include: self-awareness training, proper goal-setting techniques, habit tracking, mindfulness, imagery/visualization, attention and concentration control, breathing techniques, dealing with distractions internal/external, and many more.

“Eric did tremendous work for our players and teams. Most of our players had little to no experience with the mental side of the game of baseball until they started working with Eric. You could see a switch in their growth and steady improvement going forward.
Our players learned to deal with success and how to deal with failure in the game of baseball. They also learned how and when to use their new mental skills to compliment their physical tools.
If you want to take your game to the next level, or want your players to take the next steps with their mental game, then Eric is the right person to help them gain that edge on their competition and in their training.”
