Sports-Performance Counselling: Youth

"It takes more strength to stand-up to a slump, than to lift up a trophy"
-Bobby Clampett

Since 2003, Dr. Schuler has provided sports-performance counselling to young elite athletes from a variety of athletic disciplines, inclusive of competitive rock climbing, hockey (GTHL/OHL), baseball, competitive swimming, cross country and track, and tennis. In his clinical work with young elite athletes, Dr. Schuler is particularly interested in post-concussion/post-injury mental health recovery with boys and young men (ages 12-21), and the effects of competitive sports and elite training on young athletes and their psycho-social development.

Since ‎2003, Dr. Schuler has been a clinical consultant to Canada's National Ballet School (NBS). There, he regularly provides individual and group clinical consultation to elite student-dancers and staff training/support.

“I had some experience in dealing with people who have mental illness and depression, but I didn’t see the signs in myself. I couldn’t ask for help because I didn’t know I needed help.”
