About Maja

*** I am also available to see clients online.***

Many years of psychoanalytic education and personal analysis have taught me that each problem or symptom could be the way to discover one’s unique emotional treasure. In my clinical practice I help clients to embrace their inner truth, bear painful experiences and uncover hidden strengths in order to accept and love themselves and their own uniqueness. I’m trained to help in unfolding, containing and holding the process of mourning after a deep loss of significant other, as well as after break-up of a dysfunctional relationship.

One often behaves, relates to others, or even runs their whole life completely opposite to their own intentions, aims, and strivings. Sometimes we are totally desperate and truly unhappy with no apparent reason. By using the psychoanalytic approach, in a safe and confident setting, I accompany my clients on the journey of change. Together we discover possible meanings of their dreams, fantasies, hopes, strivings and uncover the whole realm of their inner life that suffers beneath their problems or dysfunctional behavioral patterns.

In long-term individual treatment, I work with clients on problems related to depression, anxiety, trauma, loss, identity issues, as well as life crises or transitional periods.

As a group analyst, I’m particularly specialized in relationships and attachment issues. In my work with couples and groups, I do my best to bring the relationship itself into the focus. Once some dysfunctional or toxic patterns are revealed “here and now”, they can be analyzed and interpreted. I assist my clients in exploring and discovering long-lasting dysfunctional patterns which, on the one hand, intend to protect their life, but, on the other, create various kinds of impasses.
