Meet Coach Diana

Diana Lattimore, PhD, CMPC

Diana grew up playing a few sports, but gymnastics quickly became her love - she was even inducted into the TN Gymnastics Hall of Fame! After high school, she went on to compete in gymnastics at Southeast Missouri State University. During her freshman year, Diana sustained an elbow injury that sidelined her for 13 months. That was a defining event for her as she fought her way back both mentally and physically to finish a great collegiate gymnastics career.

That injury also paved the way for her career in Sport Psychology.  She has been helping athletes for over 10 years gain mental strength & confidence in order to get back and start thriving in the sports they love.

To see if working with Diana is a fit for you or your child, let's chat!

I just wanted to share this text that I just received from Taylor when I asked her how her first session with Diana Was:
"GREAT I LOVE HER!!!  She's sooooo nice and understands"
As a parent, that is the greatest gift I could hope for, so thank you!

Our daughter warmed up to Diana right away. She trusted her and looked forward to her sessions each week. We were so pleased with how Diana helped her overcome her fears and mental blocks. The exercises that Diana recommended, such as visualizing the series and her events, helped our daughter tremendously. She uses the exercises every day at practice and before she goes to bed. Diana also helped her overcome many other obstacles along the way.

Her coach commented that she is working harder now and has more confidence. It has been a true pleasure working with Diana. She will miss talking to her each week. We will be sure to ask for more sessions if they are needed, and will recommend her to other parents and/or coaches.
