Meet Coach Suzanne

Suzanne Pottratz, PhD, CMPC

Suzanne grew up competing in gymnastics, dance, and cheerleading, and was a member of her college’s competitive dance team at Bellarmine University. She was first introduced to mental skills training when she was struggling with fear and anxiety in gymnastics.

That experience would eventually develop into a passion for helping other athletes overcome mental obstacles to perform their best.

In addition to mental skills consulting, Suzanne is an Assistant Professor of Sport, Exercise, and Performance Psychology (SEPP) at Barry University in Miami Shores, FL, where she enjoys teaching and mentoring future sport psychology practitioners.
