Dr. Michelle Cleere
Dr. Michelles passion is unlocking the power of the mind so that elite performers can play better and happier. She coaches athletes, musicians, academicians, business leaders and other people who need to perform consistently at a high level.
Performance Psychology Ph.D.
Dr. Michelle holds a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and a M.A. in Sports Psychology. She serves on the faculty of JFK University. Her research focuses on how the mind can be trained to improve performance and endurance. Her competitive spirit as a college basketball player and amateur triathlete inspired her to explore sports psychology to improve her own performance.
Her big a-ha moment came in 1997 when coaching a team of amateur triathletes, most of whom were beginners. Simple mental skill training, perspective shifts and emotional support yielded almost magical results across the team.
People who hated running learned to power up hills with mantras. People who were terrified of swimming in open water overcame their fear with visualizations. Everyone completed their raceincluding the woman who showed up to the first practice with a snorkel mask and finsand most kept competing.
Since then, Dr. Michelle has helped hundreds of athletes who compete in sports that require a high degree of mental endurance and toughness such as tennis, golf, triathlon, marathon, cycling and beach volleyball. She has also worked with concert musicians, academics competing for tenure and business executives.
Collaborations and Publications
Dr. Michelle collaborates with Dr. Oz, the National Academy of Sports Medicine and Sharecare. She writes about elite performance and the mind-body connection for Triathlete Magazine, USA Triathlon, United States Professional Tennis Association, Professional Tennis Registry. She has authored two books: Shifting Gears: How Women Triathletes Balance Life with Sport and The Experience of Participating in a Triathlon.
I am a mother of three beautiful children, a devoted woman, a dreamer, Universal Reiki practitioner, healer, angel messenger, and I'm still a child. I began my spiritual journey at the age of 14 through writing poetry and have since been publishing, writing, mentoring, encouraging and helping as many beautiful souls I possibly can so that they too can inner stand the importance of their place and path on this earth. When I'm retreating, I'm usually sliding through the halls of our home, coloring with the kids, listening to music and dancing in the kitchen with the kids or outside in the midst of nature, enjoying the connection I share with Mother Earth.
I have many nick names such as: Mother of the Earth, Haven, Lily, Betty, and Seriana. My two favorite are Mother of the Earth and Haven. I love affirmations and encourage others to say them out loud, daily.
I AM is a powerful affirmation and brings you closer to the connection with the all - encompassing, universal wisdom.
