Welcome to my site!
I am excited to share my knowledge about achieving optimal performance using mind-based tools right here on the site with my performance psychology podcast and through private sessions and workshops. I specialize in helping musicians, and I also consult with individuals who are striving for excellence in the performing arts, sports, business, and general public speaking.
With years of training as both a professional musician and a licensed psychologist, I have developed strategies to enhance practice effectiveness and time management, boost concentration, conquer performance anxiety and create an optimal performance profile.
On this site you will have access to some samples of performance-enhancing strategies that have worked for high-level athletes and musicians. You can also find out more about my personal background in music and in performance/sport psychology. I am adding a new podcast episode every week or two, so please check back frequently or subscribe to my podcast.
Thank you for visiting,
Christine Vitale, EdD
