Complete Performance Coaching is a team of highly skilled Performance Coaches.

We each specialize in different sports, and offer unique strengths that will allow you or your child to reach peak performance + maximum enjoyment.


We believe that examining the stories we tell ourselves, and taking a look from different angles, can change everything.

Maybe you’re a gymnast with a fear of going backwards.  A swimmer who can’t seem to go any faster.  Or a parent who is clueless about how to help your child succeed.  

We can help.  

Most of our clients start to see amazing results after just a few sessions.  Many feel more confident and less anxious after just the first phone call.

Rebecca Smith, MA

The Founder and Director of Complete Performance Coaching, Rebecca has a Masters Degree in Sport Psychology, and she has been helping high achievers thrive under pressure for over 15 years.

“I specialize in work with athletes age 8-18 on overcoming fear and anxiety.  As a perfectionist gymnast, I struggled with my own demons.  Then I coached gymnastics, and still couldn’t figure out how to get kids through the mental blocks.  Now, I’m passionate about the science of the mind-body connection.  

I’ve come up with a step-by-step way to help young athletes break through fear and anxiety, build confidence, and find their flow, fast.”  

I work with individuals and teams from all over the US and the world via Skype or FaceTime.  I also meet clients face-to-face in Northern California.

Diana Lattimore, PhD, CMPC

Diana is passionate about helping athletes find their confidence and inner strength in order to play and compete at their very best. Although Diana participated in three sports as a young girl, she put her basketball uniform and track shoes away in middle school to focus solely on gymnastics. Diana went on to compete at a Division I university, and despite a major injury her freshman year that sidelined her for over 13 months, she was able to come back to finish a great collegiate gymnastics career.

That injury paved the way to her career in Sport Psychology where she has been helping athletes for the past 10 years gain mental strength to not only get back in the sports they love, but also thrive in them.

Diana works with individual athletes as well as teams, specializing in working with injured athletes and those athletes who have lost their confidence along the way. She is a certified mental performance coach, an associate professor, National-rated gymnastics judge, and still an athlete at heart. Diana holds an undergraduate degree in Psychology, a master’s degree in Exercise & Sport Science with a specialization in Sport Psychology, and a PhD in Exercise Science.
