About Dr. Marshall Mintz
Psychological health isn’t just about mental well-being; it also affects physical wellness and performance. Dr. Marshall Mintz has committed his career to helping individuals, teams, and organizations optimize both: sound mind, sound body.
“My consultation work is directed toward increasing personal effectiveness and resilience to adversity. As a result, reducing anxiety, depression, confusion, and the many unnecessary battles with the world is achieved. My work with athletes and human performance effectiveness can be exclusively devoted to sport behaviors, but includes an understanding of the whole athlete as a person in context. Whether focusing on an individual, couple, family, organization or team, my training and experience enables a careful and thorough assessment of a problem in its context. This leads to exciting discoveries and changes for those seeking greater quality, effectiveness, joy and productivity in their personal, athletic or work lives.”
