Treitler Tennis And Coaching
I have been teaching tennis and life coaching for over 25 years. I work with children and adults of all ages. I am certified by the U. S. Professional Tennis Association and I’m a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker. I am willing to travel to your area to work with you.
I come from a family of teachers. I've always enjoyed helping people in some way. Not only do I like passing on a skill they can use for the rest of their lives, I also enjoy helping them to keep in shape and stay healthy.
In addition to teaching tennis, I have a counseling and life coaching background, so I can offer these services as well. I sometimes use “Activity Therapy” which incorporates a combination of activities and therapy together.
Feel free to contact me to talk about how I might be of service. 😀 Felix, USPTA, LICSW
