iPerformance Consultants offers sports psychology services from its office in Denver, Colorado. While athletic coaches typically focus on the physical side of the sport, iPerformance aims to help athletes achieve their goals — both on and off the field.
iPerformance Consultant’s sports psychologist and sports performance coach is Dr. Steve Portenga (aka Dr. Steve). Throughout his career, Dr. Steve has dedicated himself to understanding all aspects of performance psychology. He combines the theories of human performance, neuroscience, technology, and behavior change in his practice and applies them hands-on to deliver results.
Dr. Steve certainly has a passion for sports psychology and an impressive resume. Here are a few noteworthy inclusions:
Director of Sports Psychology for USA Track and Field at the London 2012 Olympic Games
Wrote the American Psychological Association’s definition of Performance Psychology
Founder member of APA’s Coalition for the Psychology of High Performance
Member of the National Association for Gifted Children’s Presidential Task Force on the Whole Gifted Child
One unique aspect of iPerformance Consultants is its focus on young athletes. Although many other sports psychology clinics say their services are meant for all ages, their websites tend to focus more on those who are older and have established a career in their sport. iPerformance appears to be a bit more young athlete friendly. The company offers a few team consulting and workshops that focus on growing and learning as a team. The company also speaks to parents about helping their children be successful in their sport and life.
However, athletes of all ages and competitive levels are welcome at iPerformance Consultants. In fact, the company’s sports psychologist has worked with professional athletes and Olympians.
While most sports psychology clinics don’t disclose their pricing information upfront, iPerformance gives its clients a general pricing range. While several factors will determine the final cost, the clinic states that it charges between $100 to $300 per hour (depending on the service). While this isn’t an exact quote, it at least gives new customers an idea of how much they’ll be paying for iPerformance’s services.
Unfortunately, iPerformance is out-of-network with insurance companies — meaning that iPerformance doesn’t have any contracts with insurance companies. However, clients are encouraged to call their insurance provider to find out if there are any reimbursements provided for out-of-network services.
