Presentations & Workshops

Gold Medal Mind, LLC has a range of professionals to provide presentations and workshops. I will list the services I provide in this area. Should you be interested in alternative topics that are outside of my scope of practice, I can connect you with a professional who can meet your needs.

I draw from a multi-disciplinary foundation given the depth and breath of my experiences and training. You can expect that I will make reference to the empirical studies, theory, anecdotal evidence and personal experience. My presentations and workshops draw not only upon the literature in psychology, but philosophy, religion, sociology, neuroscience, exercise physiology, medicine, and history. In the past, I have provided presentations for some of the following organizations: U.S. Olympic Committee – the Psyched at Noon Series, collegiate & high school athletic departments, parent groups, athletes at all skill levels, alcohol/drug treatment centers, psychology & music departments in colleges/university, church groups, and more.

Workshops are something that I will be offering on a semi-regular basis upon completion of several writing projects. Workshops offer the opportunity for the participants to explore their experience with the specific area in depth. The objective is for the participants to have the opportunity to make significant changes in his/her life. Workshops are not group therapy, but are meant to be therapeutic in nature.
