psychotherapist Krizkova 2  Katja Křížková
Psychologist and counselor

There are times in life that lead us to moments of confusion, where we feel stuck, at a crossroads, facing an overwhelming decision, or perhaps the loss of a home, loved one, job, or relationship. The times when we feel most alone or unable to connect, become key moments of transformation with an empathetic guide by your side.

My philosophy is that our childhood and many life experiences since then shape our behavior, thus influencing all of our world. Once we connect our emotions and behavior (what we do knowingly and unknowingly), and our physical reactions we can begin to understand how things around us are influenced, how reactions to those behaviors might be making us feel lost, confused, angry, sad, or otherwise imbalanced.
I strive to help remove barriers that prevent people from living as fully and richly as possible, increasing enjoyment of life through improved relationships, better self-care, and more satisfying overall functioning. Working to heal long standing patterns of emotional pain frees one to live more happily right now.
A client's motivation to find what is behind difficult feelings or behaviors is monumental for successful therapy, as is each person's dedication to take responsibility for deciding and guiding his/her life. A trusting relationship between therapist and client is at the heart of therapy, and through this relationship, impressive results will happen. The client and therapist each need to feel like the match is a good one, therefore an initial assessment period of a few sessions should be accounted for. I look forward to sharing this process with you.

Integrative therapy is a combined approach to psychotherapy that brings together different elements of specific therapies. Integrative therapists take the view that there is no single approach that can treat each client in all situations.
