Mateja has special interest in working with couples and women. She was able to assist many couples who did not have success with other therapists and were discouraged that therapy can help. Along with her great capacity for compassion and being genuine due to her own struggles in life, she uses "Imago" approach in working with couples. This approach is based on the work of Harville and Helen Hendricks. It is found on the premise that we attract a romantic partner who in one way or the other resembles the characteristics of our primary caregivers and in most cases we are not even aware of it. By exploring childhood issues that are many times deeply ingrained she has been able to help partners understand the pattern of ongoing and often emotionally charged conflicts and teach couples how to communicate effectively and learn effective conflict resolution skills. Some other challenges that she was able to help clients with include divorce, separation, infidelity, addictions, substance abuse, depression, anxiety, abuse, life transitions, financial issues and parenting issues. Most of all she helps client see things from a solution focused standpoint and provides them with a "tool box" to effectively deal with challenges even after therapy has been successfully completed.

For women she is focusing her work on regaining self-love and empower women to be their best self and to follow their dreams. She is conducting monthly women groups as well on topics such as healthy living, healthy relationships, spirituality and self-esteem.Over the years Mateja has put together extensive reading list that can be found on her website www.triglavlifecoaching.com. Being an avid reader, Mateja is also a published author and published her autobiography in 2010 titled "My Journey to Self-Discovery." It can be purchased by visiting ww.lulu.com or her website.

Mateja is a wonderful counselor. She really takes time to work with you to help in the best manner. Her approaches are holistic and she provides you with so many tools to use to improve yourself. I highly recommend her.
I was extremely pleased with the services that I have received by this provider. Not only that she is very knowledgeable but she is very compassionate and genuine. She listens well and responded to all my questions. My girlfriend and I had a lot of problems due to our divorce and we both had baggage from previous relationships. We also lost connection and she was able to get us back on track. Her Imago approach really works! I highly recommend her.
