Although Dr. Millhouse is licensed to provide intensive psychotherapy most of his time is devoted to teaching mental skills to athletes. Athletes use the mental skills to reach higher goals, become more consistent, improve at a faster rate and more easily enter the Zone. He has worked with amateur and professional athletes in most sports including golf, tennis, football, baseball, softball, basketball, hockey, boxing, gymnastics, skating and soccer. He has been authorized to provide continuing education in mental skills for members in the Georgia Section PGA.
The same mental skills athletes can use to improve their game are also used by corporate executives to enhance their performance. Dr. Millhouse provides executive coaching services to leaders in the business world and stress reduction programs to individuals and corporations.
