meet Dr. Kasey N Philyaw

The Doctor behind KNP Performance.

Dr. Kasey Philyaw has her PhD in Sport & Exercise Psychology, is a Professor of Psychology, a retired athlete with overseas experience, a researcher, consultant and your personal mental performance coach.

I have a passion for everything sport and psychology.  Two passions and professions I could never choose between, so I did both.  I've competed and trained at the highest levels on the court and in the classroom and lab.  My passion for the game and for studying psychology have coalesced in the work I do now... in bringing a listening and understanding ear to athletes, helping athletes out of slumps and navigate mental barriers, and most importantly guiding athletes towards learning and consistently maintaining their most confident and optimal selves.

Helping you unlock your power from within is my passion now.

Dr. Philyaw is the best in the business because she cares so much about the people she works with. A perfect combination of science and relationship, she balances the triumphs and struggles of athletics seamlessly.

Counseling with Dr. Philyaw will give you the mental edge you need to compete at the highest level. I wouldn’t be the athlete I am today without her guidance.
