Mateja’s passion is helping people heal from abuse, trauma, depression, anxiety, PTSD, and challenging relationships. She also helps her clients to get rid of stress in a matter of a few session or even minutes.
What distinguishes her from other more traditional psychotherapists and coaches is that in her sessions she utilizes different healing modalities that are the integration of Western and Eastern approaches that she had been studying over 20 years including clinical hypnosis and guided meditation, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and energy medicine.
Mateja has always been an avid reader. She is also the author of “My Journey to Self-Discovery, A Memoir of my Slovenian Roots and Growth in America”, as well as “Dare to Be Authentic”, a compilation of 25 authors sharing their stories of overcoming challenges on the way to being authentic and doing their passion work. Mateja believes in a holistic approach which embraces healing on all levels: emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual.
