She shared, “There were definitely some times when it was worse than others. For example, in my injuries, when I missed the Sochi Olympics in 2014, it was back-to-back ACL reconstructions, you know, almost two years of recovering from those injuries and it was a really tough time.
Still, she picked herself up and I think my love for skiing is really what got me through those times, and my support system from my family and friends, my physiotherapist. So I’m in a good position now but, you know, I’ve certainly had some difficulties in my career.
After winning four overall World Cup championships, she announced her retirement from skiing in 2019 following multiple knee injuries.

“During this first year of retirement, I went through all the stages of grief – denial, pain, anger, negotiation, depression, rebuilding, acceptance,” she wrote.
“In a way, though, it felt right, because it felt like a part of me had died. I needed to completely grieve the chapter that was ending before I could embrace what was to follow,” he said. added the Minnesota-born sportswoman.
She explained: “I desperately missed the mental cycle in which athletes exist – preparation, hard work, feedback, performance. You win or lose, then you get up and do it again. Without this singular focus, I felt aimless.

Eventually, she met a psychologist called Dr. Armando Gonzalez who introduced her to a technique called “brainspotting” which she says worked for her.
“In practical terms, this means that you sit down and actively focus on your stored traumas, sometimes for hours at a time. It can be very, very tough and emotionally intense,’ she shared.
“Some days I felt so mentally drained that I needed to sleep immediately, but it really works.” On the other hand, I found it allowed me to fully process and move past some of those stored narratives.
