About me

Lying on a couch as a patient, I came in contact first-hand with a deep and powerful transformative effect of psychoanalysis. It was during those first years of my process that I decided to set up the course of my studies and post-graduate training to become a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, allowing me to accompany others on their own transformative journeys.

I completed my psychology studies in Berlin and I'm continuing my formation as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

My practice spaces are located in Ljubljana and Celje, Slovenia. I also offer my services online.

My approach

The basis of my approach is exploring different aspects of oneself as a unique individual and one’s life as a whole. This includes your distinct history and development and an attempt to better understand how that might have influenced your present way of being and living.

At times, we may be unaware of the beliefs and fears influencing how we see and live in the world, they may be unconscious and become deeply ingrained and automatic. This lack of awareness can lead to repeating harmful behaviours, feeling trapped in unhappy relationships, and impeding our emotional, creative, and professional growth.

I provide psychotherapy to individuals experiencing a variety of different symptoms or difficulties, including going through major life transitions, existential problems including death anxiety, problems of freedom and search for meaning, relationship issues, the experience of trauma, depression, worrying and anxiety, stress and burnout.

Each psychotherapeutic and counselling process differs in content, frequency of sessions, and duration. After a few initial meetings, we decide together whether and how to continue our work together, including the goals of the treatment, the frequency of sessions, and the duration of the process.

I work with(in) the LGBTQIA+ community.
