Is it burnout or depression, and how do you identify it and manage it? In this interview, I sit down with Dr. Erin Ayala (she/her), a licensed psychologist, performance consultant, and researcher, as we go in-depth on what burnout is, and how you can come out it.
Erin blends clinical and research expertise in her work with athletes from various sports backgrounds, but especially in cycling. She’s a cyclist and the owner of Skadi Sport Psychology, which is based out of Minnesota but she’s able to practice in many states across the United States. Give this episode a listen if you think you may be experiencing burnout, and want to know how to recover from it!
