Dr. Blakely Low-Scott
Licensed Counseling & Sport Psychologist
Welcome! In my years of work as a sport psychologist, I have found athletes perform at their best when they have a rich understanding of who they are, both as a person and as a performer. Elite performers also feel capable to manage challenges that occur during the course of competition. To perform at their best, an athlete needs a space to work where they feel truly seen and heard as a whole person. My style as a sport psychologist is warm and engaging, while also being direct. I work to build a strong connection with you, and I commit to telling you what you need to know! We will work together to increase self-awareness, remove obstacles, and enhance your experience of competing in your sport.
Blakely lives in her hometown of San Antonio, TX and serves clients through her private practice. She currently holds active licenses in Pennsylvania and Texas. She provides sport psychology services to elite athletes, and she collaborates with athletics organizations to help teams perform at their fullest potential. Because Blakely is a licensed psychologist, she has the expertise to help with the full range of a performer's needs.

Counseling Psychology Services
Performers are people first. Sometimes the services we need most do not center on sport.
Softball is a sport with an increasingly high rate of failure, so having access to someone as skilled and talented as Blakely was a huge asset for our program. Her ability to almost instantaneously create a safe and comfortable space helped set the stage for tremendous growth. Blakely met our athletes and coaches where they were, while cultivating deeply meaningful and trustworthy relationships. She provided personalized solutions that helped our athletes cope with the many pressures that come from being an elite level student-athlete as well as overcome mistakes and failures that are inevitably part of the sport. Having competed at a high level herself in combination with her easy nature, our athletes were drawn to her and quickly bought in to the exercises she would take them through ultimately providing them with increased confidence, mental toughness, the ability to work through stress and anxiety, and also transferring successful training into competition. When we lost Blakely to another position we never lost the relationship that she built, which is a huge statement to her commitment to the success of the athletes, coaches and programs that are so lucky to work with her.
