Dr. Penny Werthner - Performance Psychologist

Brianne calls Penny ‘the solver of all my problems.’ Penny responds, “They are not problems…they’re simply mental blocks!” An Olympian herself, she has spent more than 30 years in sport and psychology. Having done everything from consult multiple Olympic teams to publish peer-reviewed papers, she is the most influential name in Canadian sports psychology. She’s taught Brianne that feeling scared, embarrassed, and frustrated is normal, and that accepting and letting those emotions out can help. So if you see Brianne throwing a fit at practice, Penny said she could do it.
