“As a professional tennis player, the mental side of the game is everything. Amy helped me to let go of what was not within my control, get back to feeling confident playing my game and learn to refocus my mind on what’s important. I am actually loving tennis again and excited to compete. I would highly recommend working with Amy. She is professional, kind and I feel like she really cares about helping me achieve my tennis goals. She has helped me realize my strengths and showed me how to use them to focus better on court and become stronger mentally. She has also greatly helped me in being more accepting of things that happen on and off the court that are not in my favor. This was something I greatly struggled with. I would highly recommend Amy to other athletes. She is easy to talk to, has experience and definitely knows what she is talking about. I look forward to more sessions with her!”*
-E.R., WTA Professional Tennis Player
“She won a Level 2 this weekend, after reaching two other finals in the last month. So she seems to be getting the hang of match play and her Tennis and consistency is improving too. Her happiness with achieving the goals is so nice to see. Thank you again for all the support. Her semifinal match this weekend was quite stressful and she used techniques you taught her to preserve and overcome.”*

“I wanted to let you know I recently got my acceptance letter to George Mason! I wanted to say thank you because you were such a great help. The breathing techniques and confidence boost really helped a lot.”*

“As a former world top-ten tennis player and now a coach of high-performance players, there is no question that getting a player (and his or her parents) in a good mindset is the single most important element in achieving greatness. It is also the most difficult. Amy Tardio will help driven young athletes make clear their emerging goals, help them learn to develop their passion for hard work and negotiate the roadblocks that are inherent in becoming one’s best. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.”*
-Tim Mayotte: High Performance coach, former #7 World ranked Player, Olympic Silver medalist, USA.
“Amy is very knowledgeable and her background makes her uniquely qualified to work with young tennis players on the mental aspects of the game. Amy helped him realize why he kept having negative thoughts during matches. The effect on his game has been tremendous. Since working with Amy, he plays with much more confidence and is able to come off the court satisfied with the effort. I would recommend Amy to any parents who suffer through watching their young tennis players tank during matches, over and over again.”*
-Jennifer, Tennis Mom
“Amy is one of the most positive, grounded and thoughtful people you could meet: her passion for an active, energetic life, along with her drive to impart the wisdom she’s gained from studying the science of positive psychology, will make her a wonderful guide and life coach for anyone interested in improving their outlook and their circumstances in the future.”*
-Lucy Danziger: Editor-in-Chief of SELF magazine
“I had a really tough time trusting my shot I practiced for hours and hours. Amy helped me trust in all of the shots and I saw immediate results. She helped me develop a ton of confidence. I also competed better and stopped getting annoyed at things that I could not control. She also helped me focus better on court. I definitely recommend Amy to other players and parents. My mental game has greatly improved which has allowed me to win a lot of close matches or matches. Today, I am a better competitor and I trust in myself a lot more.”*
“Amy’s positive energy and sense of fun is alive in her coaching. Her approach, while rooted in the science of positive psychology, is both intuitive and nonjudgmental. Amy’s clients feel both cared for and understood. Amy is someone you can trust will be with you every step of the way.”*
