Sports Performance Coaching

“Back in the Game” is designed to support athletes in the following areas: sports performance, recovery from injury, and addiction/mental health.  We accomplish this by providing individual and group coaching sessions that focus on education, prevention, and skill development. “Back in the Game” was developed by Rob Bumbaco, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and former division 1 athlete.  During his time playing competitive hockey Rob noticed a lack of services available to athletes to address these specific needs.  He is now able to speak to athletes and help them develop the tools necessary to achieve optimal performance while reducing the risk of developing mental health or addiction issues.

Back in the Game includes:

  • Online course content
  • Live video sessions
  • Peer support
  • Monthly talks from former NHL great Kevin Stevens

Career Coaching

Better Path is a virtual coaching program for professionals looking to develop a Career Action Plan that fully captures strengths, values, and expertise for lifelong career pursuits, goals, and decision making.

It’s more than One-on-One coaching with a professional coach.

Better Path includes:

  • Online course content
  • Evidence-based assessments
  • Exercises

Traditional career coaching can take months before you have a complete Action Plan. Better Path can be completed in as little as 2 weeks or 2 months. Take as little or long as you need, depending on your current scheduling demands. Individual and Group sessions are offered throughout the week, from early in the morning, lunchtime or evening.
