I came to PerformHappy looking to find a coach for my daughter.  We wanted someone she would feel comfortable opening up to and communicating with in order to overcome her competition nerves.  That's when we found Coach Briley!

As a result of working with Briley, our daughter was able to pinpoint her concerns and stress points, and learn new skills to manage her anxiety.  She has really enjoyed the activities and homework Coach Briley gives her - they've been very helpful.

Since working with Briley, we've noticed our daughter is very comfortable opening to up her - more than she is with her own parents.  Briley has given excellent strategies to apply, and her upbeat demeanor provided such a positive experience for our daughter to relate to.

I would absolutely recommend Briley to other athletes.  As a gymnast herself, she relates extremely well to young gymnasts and is able to develop a trusting relationship with the athletes she works with.

Our overall experience with PerformHappy and it's variety of resources has been a huge help for our daughter and us as parents, as well.
