About Our Practitioners



Dr. Colleen Holland

As a child, I knew I would become a healer.  I entered college in 1992 and decided that my goal was medical school.  Throughout my undergraduate education, I began to develop my own philosophy of health which did not match the allopathic version I was facing. I stayed convinced that healing was still my calling.  


In 1996 I entered graduate school and earned a degree in Medical Humanities.  It was during those two years that I began to see where my philosophy of health and healing could fit into the continuum of healthcare.  I had one of those experiences common to all humans when we study and question everything for quite some time and then mercifully find some clarity.  That clarity dropped me on the doorstep of Sherman College of Chiropractic in 1998. 

Four years later, I found myself on a doorstep in another state-Colorado!  (It was supposed to be a temporary move.)  Even though I was an East-Coaster I immediately felt at home in Colorado.  Then, I fell in love and that pretty much sealed the deal! My husband Carl (a CO native from Salida), our daughter Amelia, and I make our home in Loveland.

I founded Womb For Growth in 2002. I am board certified in prenatal and pediatric chiropractic care and a certified practitioner of the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy. Additionally, I am in the process of becoming a Certified Women's Herbal Educator under the tutelage of Dr. Aviva Romm.

I will always be a lifelong learner and delight in helping women achieve better periods, healthy cycles, conception, comfortable pregnancies, and the best birth possible.  I burst at the seams with joy for what I get to do everyday! 

When I'm not in my office, I enjoy reading, bicycling, gardening, sewing, beekeeping, and making potions (herbal remedies).  Most of the time, I share these experiences with my daughter and husband.






Emma Goulart, LAc

I was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area by one parent as a primary care physician and the other as an acupuncturist and nurse practitioner. Because of the health benefits I received from this integral balance, I learned from an early age that these two forms of medicine have their own important role depending on our needs as individuals.

For a long time, I knew I wanted to provide health care to others families because of my desire to give and my own personal experience in healing specific illness. I chose acupuncture because it allows me to alleviate one's symptoms immediately as well as sending them home with empowering ways they can heal themselves.  


In addition to Chinese Medicine, I have expanded what I offer by providing services as a Doula.  A Doula is someone who gives emotional support and physical guidance during the pregnancy, birth, and postpartum period.  The relationship between Chinese medicine and Doula are very much complementary in supporting the mom and her partner/family.
