About Dr. Kris Eiring
I was introduced to sport psychology when I was competing for the University of Wisconsin-Madison Women’s Track and Field Teams. I believe that it was the combination of my physical training along with some mental training that helped me to compete at the Division I level and be part of an amazing team that won multiple Big 10 championships.
Today, I am a licensed psychologist in the state of Wisconsin and I work with athletes of all levels to help them achieve their goals. There is more to the mental side of training and competing than simply being mentally tough. You also need to be mentally smart. My work is no substitute for a sound physical training program but it is an important element in giving athletes the edge they might need to excel and reach their potential.
