What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?
"Sports are 90% Mental"
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy focuses on the link between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. You will learn how to identify faulty thinking patterns and how to challenge and reframe your thoughts to be more accurate and helpful. Along with behavioral interventions, this technique will help you feel better and reach your goals.
I bring the essential combination of a background in clinical expertise and training with a full awareness of the pressure and stressors of playing a sport at the Division 1 level. Having been exactly where today’s athletes are, combined with the added knowledge and professional experiences, I possess a unique formula for success in performance coaching and helping your program and players be the best they can be.
I have worked with professional athletes, collegiate athletes at all levels, and aspiring collegiate athletes.
"Depko Joins Gothic Family as Mental Health Coach"
I take a solution focused, goal oriented, short term approach to therapy. My goal is to help you reach your therapeutic goals as soon as possible, and for you to learn the tools you need to help make your life better so that you don't need me anymore! I use predominantly Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, while incorporating elements of DBT.
Mental Skills Groups: Learn skills to help with improving confidence, obtaining “flow” state more regularly, stress management, minimizing distractions, burnout prevention, and more!
Transition Groups: Leaving the world of competitive sport behind is tough. Having others in the same boat as you to process with helps to lighten the load.
Trouble sleeping? I'm certified to treat your insomnia! In as few as 3 sessions, with the average being 8, you could be sleeping better (or just sleeping period) before you know it!
Bring in Depko Cognitive Therapy for trainings for your team, school, or corporate organization on topics such as mindfulness, mental health, mental skills, and LGBTQ+ related issues.
