About me

I’m a philosopher and integrative psychotherapist. Studying philosophy has given me a broad insight into relationship between the individual and society and provided a route to exploration of the fascinating world of psychoanalysis. My curiosity has led me to study of psychotherapy and encouraged my desire to untangle mysteries of our internal world and relationships among us. I have chosen psychotherapy to be my adventure and my mission.

I was an external co-worker of Association Drogart (a Non-Profit Volunteer Organisation for Drug Prevention), where I was practicing individual and couples therapy. I also cooperated with Daytime centre ŠENT (Mental Healt Association) in Kranj, where I conducted psychoeducational workshops and conversational groups. I was also volunteering in Slovene Hearing Voices Movement. Couple of years ago I decided it’s time for independent career path, so I opened private psychotherapy practice in Škofja Loka.

Successful psychotherapeutic work is based on constant personal and professional growth, which is brought about by personal therapy, supervision and dedicated acquirement of knowledge on seminars and workshops.

I studied at the Institute for Integrative Psychotherapy and Counseling IPSA, that is affiliated member of European Association of Integrative Psychotherapy EAIP and operates underthe auspices of the International Integrative Psychotherapy Association IIPA. I’m a member of Slovenian Association of Integrative Psychotherapy and Transactional Analysis SINTA, which is a member of Slovenian Union Association for Psychotherapy SKZP.

In my spare time I enjoy long conversations about secrets inside and outside us, movies that make me think and running through peaceful forest. I love traveling, gourmet experiments and books that are impossible to put down. In life I give the greatest significance to relationships – private and therapeutic. I believe in change, freedom, authenticity and presence.
