About Matija

Having been a patient of psychotherapy myself, I use a psychoanalytic approach in my work with adults and adolescents to help them experience the same benefits psychotherapy has brought me.

My Approach

In the past and as a patient, I spent many years lying on the psychoanalytic couch. Once I was able to see how the therapy helped me, I pursued my career as a therapist and became a member of a semi-opened analytic group. Within that experience, it was my exposure to the various approaches of psychotherapy that helped me take a more holistic view towards all of my clients.

I would describe my methods as eclectic psychotherapy in the sense that I draw from more than one theoretical approach, using multiple sets of techniques to help with my clients’ individual needs. I also have a strong interest in neuropsychotherapy which takes into account the dynamic interplay between the mind, body, social interaction, and the environment – coupled with the effects each has on a person’s well-being. In all of my methods, I follow the fundamental rule of psychoanalysis and encourage all of my clients to speak freely and without reservation.
It is through the exploration of memories, ideas, opinions, and fantasies where I help create a positive and lasting change in my client’s perspectives – not only on life, but on the self as well. In understanding that every person is unique, I tailor my methods to suit each and every one.

My mission is to help my clients learn how to understand and integrate the parts of themselves that they do not yet accept, as well as the parts that are unknown, into healthy aspects of their personalities.
