Dr. Silby and Associates offers one-on-one, small training groups, team, parent and coach mental fitness sessions both in-person and via Zoom.
Dr. Caroline Silby is a nationally renowned Sports Psychology Consultant, published author and faculty member at American University. Dr. Silby has worked on an individual basis with two Olympic Gold Medallists, twelve Olympians, three World Champions, eleven National Champions and over fifty National Competitors, including her role as Sports Psychology Consultant for the US Figure Skating Team at the Beijing 2022 and PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games.
She is qualified to help meet the needs of athletes not only because of her years of academic training through which she earned a Ph.D. in sports psychology but because of the fourteen years she spent training to make the National Figure Skating Team. Her skating career culminated in competing in the 1984 Olympic Trials. While she did not make the Olympic Team, Dr. Silby did find a way to combine her passion for sports with her interest in psychology and the mental aspects influencing performance.
