Our mission is to guide individuals through life’s struggles by empowering them to increase their awareness, be kind and loving to themselves, heal from trauma, overcome obstacles, discover their innate gifts and express them to the world.

Our Goal

Utilizing mindfulness, skills-based, and trauma-informed therapy, we support our clients to release their burdens and heal from the disabling effects of trauma.  We work together with our clients to empower them to become their own therapist by acquiring and internalizing the tools necessary to navigate difficult situations and care for their emotional needs.

Our Story

Center for Healing and Transformation’s program was built to include individual, couples, and group psychotherapy. Each of us has our own individual practices and facilitate Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) groups. Our trademark has always been to bring warm, loving support to our clients. The therapy is a partnership between therapist and client, where we walk together, side by side.

Over time, the practice grew, and Diana and Jeremy welcomed in Jill and Ryan Dawson.  Jill and Ryan lead the DBT program in Boulder and provide individual therapy in DBT, Somatic Experiencing, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Brainspotting and Gestalt Therapy. Soon after, Cynthia St. Clair was welcomed into the Center.  She runs our Denver office and is trained in DBT, Somatic Experiencing, and Gestalt Therapy.

Our History

In the summer of 2010, Diana and Jeremy Kalan met at an Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapy training in Asheville, North Carolina.  The IFS training, just like the therapy, was a powerful, heart-opening experience of learning to heal trauma and live life from a place of curiosity, caring and compassion.  After building their relationship long distance, Diana moved to Colorado, where Jeremy was living, and they began to create their lives together.

They quickly turned their attention to their shared passion and calling in life; helping those who are struggling. Diana and Jeremy opened the Center for Healing & Transformation in Boulder, Colorado in January 2011.  Growing the Center in Colorado for seven years, Diana and Jeremy decided to then follow their dreams and their inner guidance to open another location on the island of Oahu.  They now call Hawaii their home and have opened another Center for Healing & Transformation based in the beautiful town of Kailua on the Windward side.
