Our greatest glory is not in never falling,

but in rising every time we fall.

ABOUT ME

I am a counselling psychologist working and living in Prague. I received my Master's degree in Clinical and Counseling Psychology and a Bachelor's Degree in both Psychology and Criminal Justice in the United States. I have worked with clients of various ages, social and cultural backgrounds. My previous jobs included, among others: working with victims of human trafficking in the Czech Republic and with troubled youth in a juvenile center in the US. In Belgium, I had a private practice offering individual counselling. Currently, I am working in elementary school settings as a student counselor. Further, I am involved in a clinical trial testing psychedelic substances and I have a private practice in which I offer psychological counselling for a variety of clients. I offer my services in both Czech and English language.
