TheoreticalOrientation & 
Theoretical Orientation to Performance Excellence

These two theoretical orientation papers provide a clear background of the origins of my life and professional philosophy, including discussing my values, background, and the philosophical/theological underpinnings of the models that I am drawn to and specific skills that I include in my approach with clients. The first paper discusses how I integrate sport performance theory (SPT) into my chosen model of therapy, the associated challenges, the benefits, and what this will look like working with the population that I will work with on a day-to-day basis. The second paper provides a clear understanding of the origins of my Theoretical Orientation to Performance Excellence and how this shaped my Professional Philosophy. 


Self-awareness plays an integral role in effective practice, recognizing how our experiences and values influence us and guide our decision-making, and how this ultimately plays a role in our work and interactions with other people. These papers reflect the awareness of my values and intentions, including how I can utilize them most effectively to best support everyone in the field of sport and performance psychology.

Leadership Philosophy

Summaries of my leadership philosophy as it relates to sport and performance in a variety of contexts.

Professional development plan

I chose this professional development plan as one of my artifacts to illustrate the efficacy behind my plan to have my own private practice to support individuals in sport and performance psychology, as a Certified Mental Performance Consultant. My professional development plan showcases my diligence and research to go about becoming a certified professional to best support all the individuals who I am fortunate to support and work with in this field. My time at University of Western States has helped reinforce the value of effectively developing a plan to achieve our professional goals and maintain competencies to best support individuals in the field.

Ethical Case Analysis

I chose this ethical case analysis as one of my artifacts to illustrate one of the ethical models and processes that I will effectively utilize to navigate ethical issues or dilemmas, ensuring ethical practice and decision-making to best support everyone in the field. This ethical-case analysis reflects my diligence and attention to detail as I navigate ethical issues, dilemmas, or questions, ultimately coming to conclusions on how to best ethically step forward. I effectively navigate and reference ethics codes, standards of codes and ethics, and models of effective practice and ethical decision-making, resulting in ethical decisions that best support everyone involved, ultimately supporting ethical practice going forward. 

Advocacy Plan

I chose this advocacy plan as one of my artifacts to illustrate my ability to effectively develop and navigate an advocacy plan to support individuals in sport and performance. This advocacy plan illustrates my effectiveness when taking great responsibility to advocate for all of the individuals that I have a responsibility for in the field, especially in regard to ethical questions and concerns.
