Pressure on people has increased with recent world & local events. This has caused excessive stress on people creating problems that are often too overwhelming to cope with alone. William Mayer, PsyD at WILLPOWER THERAPY offers child & family therapy, as well as sports psychology. He focuses on the needs of children & their families with an interest in the integration of thoughts, emotions & behaviors. Dr. Mayer is a believer in the power of thought and teaches clients to try to understand the patterns of our thinking.

The sports psychology part of Dr. Mayer’s practice focuses on improved performance. Have you ever heard an athlete or coach say that a sport is 50-90% mental? Just as you prepare for competition by practicing physical skills, you must also prepare yourself mentally. From high school to the elite athlete, performance is largely contingent upon mental preparation before and psychological strength during a performance. Dr. Mayer recognizes that athletes need the same sharp mental skills used to compete successfully in business, the arts and in the operating room.
