Northwest Performance Psychology

Northwest Performance Psychology PLLC was founded by Dr. Elizabeth Boyer in order to partner with and support athletes and other high performers, coaches, and teams, in their pursuit of growth, goal accomplishment, and well-being. The mission is to provide an effective psychological approach that is an important part of any comprehensive training regimen.


Northwest Performance Psychology PLLC holds the belief that the performer can't be separated from the human, and how individuals approach performance is often similar to how they approach other aspects of life. Therefore, our mission is to elevate the whole person, by using a combination of sport psychology and counseling psychology principles to enhance the performances, experiences, and mental health of those involved in athletics and other high pressure performance contexts.  


We believe when individuals are supported, and psychologically healthy & present, it is possible to achieve their best experiences in performance and in life.

Meet Dr. Elizabeth Boyer, Sport Psychologist


I am a Licensed Psychologist and a Certified Mental Performance Consultant, who is committed to helping individuals maximize their potential and enjoyment in life. I work with national team members, amateur and professional athletes of all ages, collegiate athletes, coaches, executives and entrepreneurs, and teams pursue big dreams and work through unique challenges.  I come from a values-driven, strength-based perspective, and strive to bring more focus to the present moment.

I also work within the sub-specialties of stress and wellness, injury recovery, and body disatisfaction. I strive to help all athletes and coaches use effective coping strategies and core strengths in increasing resilience, healthy self-esteem, and achievement of their goals.  

Liz has also founded With Intention LLC in order to more broadly offer tools and resources that support and facilitate development for athletes, coaches, fitness enthusiasts, and everyone looking to feel their best while striving throughout life.  Click HERE to learn more, and follow @winwithintention on Instagram.
