Elliott Waksman, MA

Sport Performance Consultant


As a Wildcat at the University of Arizona, Elliott Waksman, MA was first introduced to the field of sport psychology through Dr. Jean Williams, past president of the Association for Applied Sport Psychology (AASP) and top-selling author.  Connecting issues, such as confidence and mental toughness, to his personal sport experiences immediately sparked his interest.  

Born and raised in Portland, Oregon, Waksman was a recognized Portland Interscholastic League three-sport athlete.  He often incorporates both his personal sport experiences and sense of humor in his mental training sessions.

Having earned his M.A. in Sport Psychology, Elliott Waksman will help you learn to focus better, improve your confidence level, and increase your motivation.  His weekly mental training sessions consist of role playing exercises, handouts, power point slides, and hands-on activities. These sessions cover the following areas within the field of sport psychology: peak performance, motivation, mental toughness, focus, goal setting, and imagery. As a member of the Association for Applied Sport Psychology (AASP) and having consulted with collegiate programs and hundreds of individual athletes, Waksman’s educational guidance can take your game to a higher level.
