1:1 Sessions

In Office or Virtual Sessions

You choose a coach you want to work with & schedule an appointment through our online scheduler. The first session is around 70-90 minutes & existing client sessions are 50 minutes. Ashley’s rate for the initial session is $195 & existing client sessions (all follow ups) are $175.00 per session. Christa’s rate for the initial session is $180 & existing client sessions (all follow ups) are $160. Aja’s rate for the initial session is $180 & existing client sessions (all follow ups) are $165. You enter a CC number to make the appointment, this provides no show protection & protects us from bots. That card does not get charged unless you fail to meet cancellation requirements. Payment is due upon the completion of each session.

We ask that you understand mental skills training is not a quick fix, but a process to train your brain to think differently to improve performance & handle high pressure situations better. Creating proper mental game takes multiple sessions to grasp concepts & learn strategies that build upon one another, so you should expect more than 1-2 appointments to be guided through change.

We create a detailed individualized plan after our initial session based on what you want to solve. We want you to have the opportunity to learn enough material to see an impact!

We think a common misconception is that sport psychology is just for elite athletes, but the truth is, developing coping skills & having the right mindset helps athletes in school, their careers, & how they interact with others. We spend so much time training the physical aspect, then when it comes time to compete, we haven’t practiced how to avoid hesitating, or calming our nerves, or how to work through difficult situations. When athletes are so worried about things going wrong or playing the “what if this happens” game, they can’t unleash their physical potential.

We wholeheartedly believe in teaching actual tools to build mental strength without relying on just a positive thinking mentality. We pride ourselves in teaching strategies athletes actually want to implement & absolutely love watching athlete’s experience the ‘ah-ha’ moments after they’ve learned how to manage their emotions. The wins they have continued to share over the years is why we do what we do!

Parenting Performers Program

Curious what Ashley is like? Want to learn a few strategies to help your athlete before you invest in another program? 

On Demand Course $47

If you’re a COACH OR A PARENT – ask yourself this:

Are you jeopardizing your athlete’s success by your “helpful” comments?

Stop reacting & start being intentional with how you give feedback & motivate your athlete.

This mini course is a private podcast feed for parents or coaches to learn how to communicate with their athlete more effectively. Private feed just means you have to purcahse to have access to it, but the recordings & transcripts are yours for life. There’s no parenting manual, you’re just supposed to figure it out & hope you don’t screw up your kids along the way.

If you’re a parent or a coach who has struggled with athletes that: pick fights, can’t recover from a mistake, don’t like facing discomfort, can’t receive criticism, freeze when making decisions, struggles with mental blocks, or maybe is just underachieving based on their beliefs, like: “I’m not smart enough, I’m not athletic enough, I’m not fast enough, I’m not strong enough, I’m not flexible enough,” YOU NEED THESE TIPS!

After years of presenting parent workshops, I’ve finally created an easy to consume, on-the-go resource for those with a schedule “where there’s never enough time.” After you check out, you get an email that sends you a private link, then you can listen instantly on your favorite app – 10 episodes with 5-8 tangible tips in each episode. I promise it’s not just theory!

Once you utilize behavior psychology to your advantage, you become a source of support not a source of pressure for your athlete.

RESHAPE how you parent or how you coach with this program & GAIN TANGIBLE TIPS!


  • What to say after a tough practice

  • How to have conversations without constant arguments

  • How to get your kids to actually listen to you

  • How to help them reset or calm down

  • How to redirect them when all they say is “I suck”

  • How to teach them to have fun

  • How to give feedback so they actually want to implement it

  • What you should & shouldn’t share with your athlete

  • How to know when it’s time to retire or push them

  • When to give reminders on what they “need” to be doing

  • How to teach forgiveness

Have a better relationship with your kids & avoid them getting burned out! 

You never meant to put pressure on your athlete, but they sure feel it. All you ever wanted was for them to have fun. You’re giving corrections based on what you know they “need” but if you learn how to deliver it differently, their brain can actually process it better & then apply it.

See how they are resistant to your feedback? What if you learned a way to “allow them to hear you” & be more open to what you have to offer? Parenting Performers teaches you how to have tough conversations so your athlete is more receptive to the information. Did you know ONLY 7 % of high school athletes go on to compete in college & less than 2% do so at a division 1 level? We like to “motivate” our kids by talking about college opportunities, how good they are, how lucky they are, how proud we are of them, & what we think they can accomplish… We expect the next level of our kids without realizing it, then we place pressure unintentionally.

Perception is more important than reality, & at the end of the day, how a kid performs is all about how they interpret a situation or your messaging. Do they like how you cheer them on? Have they ever hinted that they don’t like you to watch practice or come to games/meets/etc? In this audio only podcast course, I’ll share how to better prepare your kids to compete & how to communicate stronger.

“I never hesitate to recommend Ashley, or anything she puts out there, if you want to improve your performance. Her ability to share information is uncanny. She has a contagious personality that invites you to listen and learn.” – Mary H.

Tenacity Tactics Toolkit


This last option is a bundle of all 3. All the courses were designed for the most common concerns our clients have. Each course is unique & there is different material in each one, but they complement each other exceptionally well. This bundle contains what I feel every athlete that comes to see me NEEDS to know! Some people might only have one concern, if that’s the case, get what’s best for you. Based on years of experience, I know most have a combo of crap setting up camp in their head & this is how to tackle it!

Athletes come to my office daily expressing the need to overcome negative thinking & troublesome nerves! And, parents ask multitple times a day, “what should I say when (blank) happens” so Tenacity Tactics Toolkit was born to get you instant access to the answers. Get those systems & strategies in place for the best season yet. 

Spoiler alert: it takes less time than you think to jumpstart your mental game.

If you’re tired of practice not transferring to competition, falling short on your goals, or freezing in fear, there’s nothing wrong with you, you just need the right coping skills. It’s time to major in: composure, consistency, comebacks, clarity, confidence, & communication! With this bundle, you can binge & be ready to apply the next time you compete. This solution is even better than 1:1 coaching where you’re just hoping you remember what we talked about. You now have a resource to review as often as you’d like! 


– Easy to understand tutorials, video & slide lessons, detailed notes, how to apply, & workbooks full of exercises & examples. It all lives in a student portal that you can access anytime so you can learn what we teach in 1:1 sessions faster & more efficiently!

Have you done everything to PERFORM TO YOUR POTENTIAL? 


To the ATHLETE – Could you be better if you knew how to react differently when things went wrong? What if you could compete more relaxed? You should look forward to competing. It should be fun. The average competitor quits when it gets tough, but after you learn mental performance tools, you’ll be in control & have authority to improve your performance.

To the PARENT – What if I fast tracked your way to being a better parent? What if you were given access to parenting psychology without going through a ton of books? Make your kid’s athletic career full of incredible memories they cherish. You have ONE SHOT at being the best parent you can be. 

“I’ve listened to all the episodes in the Parenting Performers podcast multiple times because it’s just that good. Your ideas are applicapable and you suggest things that I feel like I can handle. I actually helped my son work through a decision he was making without a “mom you don’t get it” comment. Thank you so much.”                    -Elizabeth B.

“Working with you is the first time my daughter hasn’t complained about something I suggested. She is a better competitor now and I’ll never forget the response I got when I asked what she learned, ‘mind-blowing, she’s a queen, she’s so passionate’ was what I received. That speaks volumes. She was nervous to try something new and now she’s pumped.” – Kate F.

Team, Coaches, or Corporate Workshop

“I saw Ashley speak at my daughter’s gymnastics camp, so knew she was full of powerful advice and told stories that that made me really think. I decided to hire her for our yearly staff training and she had us rolling while also giving us some valuable communication tips to increase customer retention. The girl can entertain. My staff told me they paid attention the entire time.” – Sara T.
