Our greatest glory is not in never falling,

but in rising every time we fall.

ABOUT ME

Announcement: Due to the increased demand for therapy services,
I am not accepting any new client requests at this time. 

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 counseling. In the Czech Republic, I also worked in high school and elementary school settings as a student counselor. Further, I was involved in a clinical trial testing psychedelic substances. In my private practice, 

I offer psychological counseling for a variety of clients. I offer my services in both Czech and English language.
