Today's athletes encounter more obstacles than ever before. Surrounded by pressure on and off the field, athletes are always expected to perform at the highest level. As a former collegiate athlete and coach, I know firsthand how those pressures can directly affect ones' ability, confidence and self-esteem.
My name is Ed Darrah and I am Licensed Professional Counselor and National Certified Counselor. My Sports Performance Consulting practice is geared to help athletes at all levels become the best and healthiest athlete/individual they can be. My Athlete-Centered approach draws from my clinical, athletic and coaching background. In addition, I use Sport Psychology Principles and Concepts to help athletes improve, increase and restore performance qualities.
My philosophy as a sport performance consultant is to assist athletes, teams, coaches and parents in all aspects of performance enhancement and mental wellness. Focusing on sports and life, I work from a holistic style that enables athletes to attain greater progress in their performance. Combining both a clinical perspective and sport psychology principles my athletes reach their highest potential. I also provide consultations, presentations and workshops for various athletic teams and companies on sport and performance psychology.
I firmly believe the holistic needs of student-athletes are paramount for harmonizing success during the life span for both athletic achievement and overall quality of life. I lean on the foundations of my Athlete-Centered approach that is built around congruence and authenticity, unconditional positive regard and empathy. The pillars of my Athlete-Centered approach are exemplified between the working relationships with my clients; similar to a player and coach dynamic.
