Becoming a therapist and coach has been one of my greatest homecomings.


I find such deep joy and satisfaction in reflecting your worthiness back to you so that you feel it deep in your bones.  In watching you step into your wild power and your aliveness.  In witnessing your healing and empowerment ripple out into your ecosystem of relationships, your contributions to your world.

I know how much vulnerability it takes to engage with the process of therapy, so I bring the same courage, authenticity, and willingness

to find light in the darkness that I ask of you.  

Healing through collaborative relationship

Part of the healing power of therapy lies not only in the practical tools and skills we can support you in developing, but also in the way we go about the process.  There is such potent medicine in being seen and held, and in feeling like all parts are welcome at the table.  My intention is always to build the kind of trust with my clients where they can ask to go slower or faster, where they can be fully honest about feeling frustrated with me or the process, where they can voice the true impact that our work is having.


Orienting towards integration of paradox

I believe that so much of healing and personal growth is about integrating opposites: taking care of Self and taking care of Others; accepting ourselves as we are and reaching for more of what we want in Life; giving ourselves the structure and accountability we need and having flexibility to meet ourselves where we are; as a therapist, I am professional and I am fully human.  Personally and professionally, I get tremendous satisfaction from weaving these polarities together in creative ways so that new realities can emerge.  


Another paradox: therapy is both an art and a science

Throughout my career, I have compiled a diverse array of evidence-based psychological and somatic tools to help others move toward regulation, wholeness and thriving.  Simultaneously, I am always listening deeply for the unique song of the soul that is wanting to find expression through the person in front of me.  I love finding the just-right balance between structure and fluidity that feels most supportive to each of my clients.

Soul Threads

My favorite way to get to know people is through the organic, emergent, spoken-word process of developing connection together.  In the meantime, here are some of the threads that are woven into my story so far: 

  • I am endlessly enthralled with the process of human relationship.  I am deeply committed to the process of learning to relate to myself, to others, and to the natural world in ways that foster empowerment, nourishment, and a sense of "enough" for everyone.  

  • I was born in the Czech Republic, and immigrated to the United States when I was a young child.  It has been a challenging, beautiful journey to integrate two lands and cultures into my life.  I draw much strength from my connection with my family, ancestors, and our Czech homeland, where I still visit at least once a year.  Today, I spend most of my time in the original homeland of the Núu-agha-tʉvʉ-pʉ (Ute), Tsistsistas (Cheyenne), and Hinono'ei (Arapaho) peoples, known by most English speakers today as Boulder, Colorado, where I am learning how to be an honorable guest.  

  • In addition to English, I am professionally fluent in Spanish and Czech, as well as conversational in French and Swedish.  I have always been fascinated by linguistics, and delight in the power of language to express our inner truth and to find new paths toward connection, freedom and empowerment.

  • I come from a family of storytellers.  When I was little, I loved listening to my grandfather's stories about mountains and justice and adversity and honor and love.  One of my favorite aspects of my work is that I get to hear so many stories from my clients—and that our explorations together have the power to impact how those stories go.

  • I am fascinated by pregnancy, birth, and postpartum: love, intensity, becoming, paradox, relationship, anatomy, all within the same organic process. Years ago, after binge-listening to birth story podcasts for many months, I finally took the plunge and became a birth doula.  Attending birth and welcoming new humans to Earth for the first time has been one of the greatest honors of my life.

  • One of my favorite ways to connect  to my own wildness is through spending time above treeline as a guest in the original homeland of the Núu-agha-tʉvʉ-pʉ (Ute), known by most English speakers today as the high Colorado Rocky Mountains.  My soul feels particularly connected with the red, golden, and purple colors during autumn, or at sunset or sunrise.  Being in the high country gives me a sense of freedom and  perspective, and I always feel deep awe at the majesty of the peaks. 

  • I am committed to the process of dismantling the oppressive forces of colonialism, patriarchy, and white supremacy, and instead creating culture rooted in process, owning and connecting with our lineage history, quality over quantity, complexity, and "many right ways."  I make it a practice to embrace discomfort and tension, to honor relationships and the spoken word, and to tend deeply to interdependence.

  • I go for a LOT of walks.  Long walks, short walks, walks alone, walks with family and friends.  I enjoy evening walks in particular.  In the summer, at dusk, when the air is hovering right at skin temperature, I can sometimes feel micro-patches of warmth and coolness as I move through the air.  In the winter, here in Colorado where the air is very clear, the silver starlight reflects off the hard, icy ground, and there is a stark, ringing silence that brings me a deep and quiet clarity.  

  • Themes of connection, loneliness, belonging, and home have been powerful and recurring threads throughout my life story.  It has been a long journey to accepting the continual process of getting lost and coming home to my body, my people, and this world.
