Katherine Blackwell

Blackwell Mental Performance was founded on a passion for helping others. Since 2014, I've worked with active-duty military which inspired me to go into the field of sport psychology and pursue working with high performers and high-risk occupations. Dealing with my own sports injuries fueled my desire to work with others who've been injured. As a USMC spouse, athlete, and business owner, I understand the strain these lifestyles create, and I know the stigma associated with reaching out for help.


My goal is not only to help with symptom reduction but to address the root of the problem and then help you work towards optimal performance. I take a solution-focused holistic approach when working with individuals, recognizing the importance of the mind-body connection. I am straightforward and take an active role in helping you achieve your goals so be prepared to do the work!
