Each Thursday in January, NXT has been teaming up with Greenepsych to deliver talks on topics that relate to mental health and well-being as well as achieving performance related goals. To join us on this journey, we are extremely fortunate to have Mitch Greene, PhD, and Lauren Ruhl, LPC.
Dr. Mitch Greene is a licensed clinical and sport psychologist, with an expertise in generating tailor-made solutions to his clients’ problems. Dr. Greene works primarily with athletes pursuing high-performance goals, as well as coaches and athletic departments looking to educate their student-athletes on mental health and performance enhancement strategies. Dr. Greene has spoken nationally and internationally on topics related to building confidence, managing doubts, sports parenting, and building an elite performance culture. Dr. Greene received his Ph.D. from Temple University and is the owner of Greenepsych Clinical & Sport Psychology, located in Haverford, PA.
Lauren Ruhl, LPC, CSCS is a licensed professional counselor and sports psychology consultant. A former college athlete, Lauren found her career path in helping others after suffering a season-ending injury in college. Lauren works primarily with athletes around issues such as recovering from injury, perfectionism, performance anxiety, generalized anxiety, depression, burnout, academic stress, and enhancing confidence. She provides individual and small group training for athletes, sport parents, teams, coaches, and health-care professionals (i.e., physical therapists, athletic trainers, etc) as well as working individually with clients, from elementary age to post-college age. Lauren supports athletes in learning not only the skills needed to be successful in sport, but also in life.
Below is a brief description of each topic as well as the recording of the actual session. This section will be updated throughout the Winter Wellness Series until all sessions are completed and all videos are posted.

This past year has been anything but normal. Losing your sport season and the uncertainty of your schedules can be emotionally exhausting and extremely frustrating. In this session, Mitch and Lauren discuss how to make the best of your time and develop creative ways to stay committed to your goals.
