Customized Treatment

Each athlete, each sport, every competition situation is different. We provide customized intervention programs based on your goals and situations. Dr. Temple uses scientifically rigorous methods of sport psychology to carefully assess each athlete and match interventions to each athlete’s particular profile, rather than using a “one size fits all” approach to performance enhancement.

Qualified Advice

Dr. Temple earned a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Alabama at Birmingham.  He completed a clinical internship at the Medical University of South Carolina, and a postdoctoral fellowship at Brown Medical School. Dr. Rich is one of a very few psychologists in Texas (and the country, for that matter) to complete this rigorous training under the mentorship of renowned sport psychologist Dr. Roland Carlstedt.

Proven Success

Proven Success with athletes in many sports including golf, swimming, track and field, cycling, tennis, soccer, bowling, baseball, softball, volleyball, rowing, and football.

Treatment Plans

We work with individual athletes, parents, and coaches. Clients can engage in short term or long term programs of work depending on individual needs and requirements.

Our sessions are in person with a combination of time spent based on needs of client. Each client will receive an in-office assessment using Biofeedback to create an individualized Athlete Profile.

What is Biofeedback?

Biofeedback is the electronic monitoring of automatic body functions (e.g., heart rate, muscle tension, skin temperature) to gain voluntary control of that function.  Biofeedback is an advanced mental technique that can help you gain control over reactions to stress that can limit your performance during critical moments in competition.

After profiling, interventions and monitoring options vary based on results and requirements. Day and weekend consultancy is available in your athletic environment. Yearly and competitive season sports psychology programs also available
