Helping you get unstuck and move in valued directions.
What is an Action Potential?
The term "Action Potential" describes the proper balance of electrical charges within a neuron (brain cell) that causes it to fire. Dr. MacIntire, chose to use this term to describe clinical, sport, and health-coaching services because it fits with her views of change and healing. Specifically, many people seek help when they are not feeling their best or just want to get going in the right direction. Perhaps you have faced some circumstances that have left you feeling a bit off-- as a person or an athlete. Maybe you feel disconnected with yourself or you know that you're not performing at your best. Talking with someone could help you to identify what needs to change so that you can get back in touch with your action potential.
Sport Psychology involves the application of psychological skills and team-building to enhance performance. Sport Psychology is for anyone who wants to perform at their best-- it's not just for elite athletes. In fact, many of the skills learned during Sport Psychology training are transferable to other areas of life, including academics and career.
An array of consultation and research services are available. Need a better understanding of your employees? Need to clarify your team or organizational values? Is your team culture healthy or toxic?

Program evaluation services are available to better understand how programs and services meet the needs of the people you serve, how your employees are doing, and express the values of the organization.
Are you struggling to set goals related to health behavior changes, like diet and exercise? Health coaching is a non-clinical service offered to those who do not need traditional psychotherapy. If a physician, nutritionist or dietitian has recommended a specific diet for you OR you have chosen one for yourself, but you are struggling to stick with it, health coaching may be for you.
