Available CC-AASP Mentors
(updated January 2, 2014)
Below is contact information for current CC-AASP mentors who stated they are willing to provide mentorship (locally or from a distance) to interested students or applicants working towards AASP certification:
Butcher-Poffley, Lois A.
Assistant Professor, Pearson Hall 118, Department of Kinesiology, Temple University
Short Description: Students should have some sort of access to a client base (i.e., internship with a team at their school is probably the best bet) to make the mentorship more relevant and effective. They should have completed at least one sport psychology course, as well, in order for the work to make sense. It is best for them to contact me via e-mail at email@example.com. They will have a reply in under 24 hours.
Short Description: All potential mentees will be interviewed by me to see if they are a fit for my mentorship. All potential mentees will be required to have at least 2 letters of recommendation (not written to me necessarily) from former faculty members or mentors. Would also require the student has liability insurance.
Short Description: I offer a discounted rate for mentorship so I'm very selective about who I choose to mentor. We would start with an initial meeting to see if we both think it would be a good fit. For the people I work with towards their AASP certification I require some audio and video recordings for specific feedback. I'm available for business mentorship as well as consulting mentorship working towards AASP supervision. Liability insurance is also required and I can help direct you in this process if needed.
Short Description: Students must be able to come to my office in the beginning of mentorship. Potential mentee would need to carry some form of liability insurance, and understand that any mentorship would not count towards hours for licensure as a psychologist.
Short Description: Students must have to have their own clients. I work with students via phone/SKYPE if face-to-face is not feasible. Trainees need to supply consulting information according to AASP guidelines and, if possible, they must be able to provide video recordings of workshops or interview sessions for direct supervision.

I will assist with remote supervision if the student has an internship set up and does not need a placement by reviewing case notes, recordings, video tape, and by phone and e-mail to meet the supervision requirements.
Mobile: (214) 773-4813
Fee: $3,000 (for up to 24 months of supervision and up to 700 hours)
Short Description: This is a formal internship opportunity. The student contracts with Dr. Neff to complete the required mentorship hours. If the student is in the Dallas Metroplex, MTI can provide clients. Long distance students (outside of the Metroplex) will need to provide some clients. Upon completion, and possibly before, there may be an employment opportunity offered to the student, depending on credentials and interest from both parties. Videotaped client sessions are a key method used in our mentorship process. Students need to be willing/able to record client sessions and then upload to a password-protected site (their own or MTI's). Mentorship hours are tracked on a shared, password-protected timesheet.
Short Description: Students must provide their own client base. Two letters of recommendation from current or former faculty or clinical supervisors are required. During an initial phone conversation we will discuss the potential mentorship arrangement and decide if it is a good fit for both parties. Our first official mentorship session will occur in person. Follow up sessions may occur via Skype/Google Hangout. I will review some sessions in person or via audio or video. Students must have liability insurance. Further, it is understood that mentorship hours do not count towards hours for licensure as a psychologist.
Short Description: A contract would need to be signed. This details liability insurance and requirements of providing examples of video/audio work, etc.
Short Description: The individual will looking for mentorship will need to find their own athlete/team. I would be happy to assist in developing a relationship with or finding a team. I am willing to work with individuals via email, Skype, or phone if face-to-face is not available. If interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information about the mentorship process.

Short Description: This is an informal internship placement. The individual seeking mentorship will need their own athletes/performers to work with, although I would be happy to help establish a relationship with a team or group.

Phone: (908) 403-8473
Short Description: Mentees will need to have access to their own clients and will be asked to sign a mentorship contract. Fees will be determined on a case by case basis reflecting both my extensive experience as a Clinical and Sport Psychologist as well as the financial realities of being a student. Mentees will be expected to adhere to AASP ethical and intervention guidelines. My preference is to meet prospective mentees face to face initially (perhaps at an AASP conference) and if appropriate remote sessions can be considered. If remote sessions are appropriate, select audio or videos of the mentees work will be needed.
