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.  

The crux of our work together is in showing up.

In your healing journey, I will show up for you solidly and consistently, creating the container of trust that healing requires.  As your brain and body take in what it feels like to be held with deep care and honor, you will cultivate new qualities of presence in how you show up for yourself and your people.

Take in the nourishment of being fully seen in your wholeness.

In our culture, it can be difficult to find spaces where you feel seen and supported in your fullest expression and complexity.  I am committed to being that space for you, where you can show up as you are, in your confusion, your grief, your joy, your shame, your power, your knowing, and so much more.  

Create your own definition of what thriving looks like for you.

I practice a relationship-centered approach that takes into account social location, power dynamics, and oppression.  I am not in the business of teaching people how to fit into narrow standards that in so many ways do not fundamentally support our humanity.  Instead, I help you listen deeply and trust your own authority to create a thriving life and healthy relationships according to what those mean for you.

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.
