“The earlier we can learn these skills and tools, the more beneficial it will be for us as individuals as well as a part of society, so why not start teaching our kids as early as possible!?” - Danielle

Danielle, a former DI ice hockey player and professional athlete, hails from Southern CA, where her love for the sport blossomed. Introduced to skating at the tender age of 4 and hockey at 5, she quickly found her passion. While pursuing a BA in Sociology at Providence College on a full athletic scholarship for ice hockey, Danielle led her team as captain during her senior year. Her professional career led her to the NWHL, where she served as assistant captain for the Oakville Ice for two years before playing professionally in Lugano, Switzerland, for HC Lugano. Alongside her athletic pursuits, Danielle earned an MA in Sport & Exercise Psychology, paving her way into mental skills coaching. As the CEO of Peak Performance Training LLC since 2010, Danielle has been dedicated to empowering athletes, coaches, and parents, focusing on the mental aspect of performance. Notably, she serves as the Official Mental Skills Coach for the USA Hockey National Development Camp.
Danielle is also celebrated as the author of the best-selling book, "The Empowered Athlete—Self-Confidence, Self-Acceptance, and Self-Worth: An Athlete’s Guide to Excellence".
Key Points:
1. Danielle is a mental skills coach specializing in developing coping strategies and skills in youth athletes.
2. She emphasizes the importance of addressing mental barriers faced by athletes, such as perfectionism, fear of failure, and coping with adversity.
3. There has been a shift in the sports industry towards acknowledging and addressing mental health challenges, although more progress is needed.
4. Her programs cater to athletes aged 11 to 20, focusing on teaching skills like diaphragmatic breathing and providing support for athletes and their families.
5. McDonough's ultimate goal is to empower athletes and families to navigate the challenges of sports and life successfully.
