  • I have very flexible office hours to accommodate the busy lives of my clients. Let's discuss your needs.

If you are an elite athlete or entrepreneur seeking a powerful performance edge, or if you suffer from anxiety and trauma, I welcome you to experience powerful tools to generate consistently high performance, relaxation and satisfaction.

The methods are deep, and at times the process is emotionally and mentally difficult, but the results can be  profound.

Dino Paris has helped athletes, artists,  and entrepreneurs achieve peak performance for over a decade.  In his clinical practice, he has helped patients release themselves from the devastating impact of  anxiety and trauma for over 20 years as a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist.  

Dino employs the most effective, evidence based methods as well as esoteric practices he has learned through study with spiritual masters and international, indigenous healers.  Dino Paris describes himself as an empiricist, meaning:  his  goal is simply to be effective.  The empiricist's basic rule:  "If a method works, continue."

These methods help clients find their natural flow, "in the zone," feeling great satisfaction and outstanding  performance in sports, creativity and business. Experiencing higher and higher achievement while enjoying the simple pleasures of life.

Relief from Anxiety & Trauma

If you suffer from anxiety or trauma you know how painful, terrifying, and disruptive it  feels.  Perhaps you have tried therapy before, and even understand the source of your struggles, but how valuable is insight if you still don't feel calm?

Thankfully, relief from anxiety and trauma is now available.  The latest neuroscience, and psychiatric research demonstrates that  specific interventions can help you re-claim your sense of calm, well being, and contentment.  (The Body Keeps the Score, Bessel Van Der Kolk)

I welcome you to experience these effective interventions with me, and my colleagues.  and finally enjoy relief and satisfaction. 

High Performance Coaching & Athletics

It's no secret that the greatest athletes need the mental and emotional advantage of cutting edge sports psychology to consistently surpass greater heights of performance in world class competition.

The process of achieving unprecedented performance is deep, and at times mentally and emotionally profound, but the psychic work is worth it.

I welcome you to experience the psychological power tools that raise your performance to new heights, while helping you feel calmer and happier in the game and in your life.
