Dr. Podolin has worked with high school, college, and professional athletes to enhance their performance and enjoyment. Dr. Podolin has worked with athletes involved in both individual and team sport. Following an individual assessment of the athlete, Dr. Podolin and the athlete define specific treatment goals. Dr. Podolin communicates with the athlete outside of the office by phone, email and text message to obtain performance feedback and to offer immediate suggestions toward treatment goals. Although every athlete is different, frequent areas of focus include reducing arousal, improving attentional focus, and enhancing intrinsic motivation. Dr. Podolin frequently uses stress profiling and heart rate variability training as a biofeedback modality for athletes to reduce the effects of excess arousal.
