Announcement icon During the COVID pandemic, I offer telehealth therapy only. (therapy21st.net)
I offer individual psychotherapy to adults. I view therapy not only as a means to reduce emotional distress, but also as an approach to personal growth. I believe that therapy should not be a way of life. I therefore emphasize the acquisition of concrete skills (communication, emotion regulation) and offer solution-focused therapy, while also recognizing that some issues require longer-term work. I view therapy as a collaborative process of exploration. I bring to this process an attitude of compassionate curiosity and non-judgment. I also draw on my own bi-cultural experience - I was born and raised in Prague, Czech Republic.
I practice emotion-focused therapy, which emphasizes the positive roles of emotions. Sometimes, however, due to stress, trauma or adverse life events, emotions can become a source of distress. Through empathic, collaborative exploration I help my clients identify their authentic emotional needs and develop strategies for reducing distressing emotions.
Therapy is my 2nd career. My PhD is in Computer Science (Artificial Intelligence) and my therapeutic work is informed by 25+ years of research in AI and cognitive & affective science. I am thus very familiar with academic environments, and draw on this knowledge when working with clients from research/technical backgrounds. Phone/video sessions available.
