“I wanted to let you know that in just a couple sessions with you, we are seeing a change in not only in our daughter, but the manner in which we handled things. I’m glad to see her starting to use skills that she once had in full force at her prior club as the “alpha dog,” if you will, but that have become dormant over the past 10 months. More importantly, I wanted you to know how much we appreciate what you are doing for our daughter.”

What Athletes and Parents Are Saying About
Soccer Mental Training with Jaki Hitzelberger, MA, MGCP
“Jaki is amazingly talented. She has a pretty cool way of guiding you to find those issues that are holding you back in your game. Through some pretty clever questions she’s been guiding me to discover the realissues behind my doubts and lack of confidence. With the tools she’s been giving me, I can say with full confidence I am on my way of signing a better professional contract.”
“Our son plays academy level soccer. Jaki taught him how to focus on mini goals for each game and practice, how to lower his expectations and understand that mistakes are necessary to grow as a player, and helped his perfectionism. We saw a noticeable difference within one month with improvement each month thereafter. He was more confident, happy, and was having fun again at soccer. The confidence has helped him off the field as well to not have to be perfect in everything that he attempts. We can’t say enough about how grateful we are for Jaki!”
~Linda Black, Soccer Parent
My son Alex recently completed a 3 month one on one Soccer Mental Training program with Jaki. I can tell you that he has improved both on field and off the field. One of the key areas is his overall confidence and positive approach before, during, and after games. Jaki was able to connect with Alex and guided him to develop plans that he continues to use and adjust today. He is focused on process goals in the short term and has developed long term goals to guide him. His stress level regardless of situation is consistently at a positive and healthy level. What he learned is something he is applying at all levels and not just soccer. Challenges have not magically disappeared, they are just not as eventful for him and he is able to tackle them more efficiently. He has told me that is the case, and I have seen the change. Thank you Jaki!
