Sport Psychology Services

Iowa State University’s Sport Psychology Services, provided through the Student Counseling Service, are committed to offering quality and comprehensive psychological services to ISU student-athletes. We believe that athletes are able to achieve optimal performance (both on and off the field/court/pitch/mat) when they are a “whole healthy athlete.” Consistent with this belief, we aim to help student-athletes navigate and address a wide range of issues including, but not limited to: adjusting to college, enhancing athletic performance, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, disordered eating and body image concerns, academic challenges, increasing confidence, and goal-setting. Our staff aspires to provide these services while recognizing the unique challenges and values associated with elite level athletics in order help student-athletes’ reach their goals and promote holistic well-being.
