What is the difference between Sports Psychiatry and Sports Psychology?

Sports psychiatrists help with life issues and the treatment of disorders, in addition to the psychological aspects of sports competition and training.  Sports psychiatrists specialize in athletes who are facing medical and/or emotional disorders along with addressing the emotional blocks affecting performance.  They can more easily coordinate with other medical care providers given their background and training.

Sports psychologists are educators who teach techniques to help athletes better handle competitive situations. Typically, sports psychologists work on the emotional blocks that athletes face, including facing their fears and overcoming negative thinking.

What Dr. Konzer’s Patients are Saying…

Finding Dr. Konzer in 2020 was the highlight to a year that was more challenging than any of us were prepared for in January. I love how she treats the whole person. We came to her due to sports anxiety, but I never knew how everything around my son, including me, impacted who he is and who he is becoming. She is supportive, while challenging. When my son desires to talk to her and seeing the results is worth more than anything I could have asked for. At one time, I felt like what was I doing wrong because he couldn’t talk to me, but now I’m thankful that we have given him this village around him with Dr. Konzer being our glue to bring it all together. – Parent of a Football Player – High School/Rising College
