Carrie Stewart, Sports Psychologist


Carrie Stewart

Carrie was born in New Mexico on June 13, 1983, but thank goodness her parents came to their senses and moved to the great state of Texas just four months later. Carrie grew up in North Richland Hills participating in a variety of sports in high school and college. She knew from an early age that she wanted to be a counselor. Thanks to her brothers for making her memorize baseball cards at the ripe age of 6, Carrie developed a love for sports and in particular baseball.

After graduating from Dallas Baptist in 2008 with her Masters in Counseling, she set out to get her LPC and have a speciality in Sports Psychology. Carrie met her mentor five years ago, who is the director of sports psychology with the Dallas Mavericks and Texas Rangers. He has guided her and taught her skills that have been invaluable and which cannot be learned in a classroom.

Carrie has worked with the Dallas Mavericks, Dallas Cowboys and Texas Rangers organizations in helping the athletes with both teams improve the mental side of their game. She enjoys speaking to collegiate and high school student athletes as well as working with individuals dealing with sports performance anxieties at her private practice. 

With the NTX Spartans, Carrie primarly works offseason clinics as well as provides private counseling.
