I became Jungian Analyst in 1989, graduating from the C.G.Jung Institute in Zurich, Switzerland. I was born in Zagreb, Croatia. My education led me to move and live in four different countries. After graduating from Medical University in Zagreb 1973, I moved to Germany where I specialized in Internal Medicine. During my work as physician I was intrigued by psychosomatic diseases, and the relationship between mind and body. This interest stirred my curiosity in the depth psychology and led me to study at the C.G. Jung Institute in Zurich. After 8 years in Zurich I graduated in 1989 and moved to Calgary. I settled here and maintained private analytic practice. In 1991 I was one of the founding members of the Calgary Jung Society.
In addition to individual therapy, I give seminars and hold workshops on dreams, symbols, myths, fairytales, as well as I teach theory of Jungian psychology.
I am an avid skier, bicyclist, photographer and gardner. I practice zen mediation and yoga. I am passionate about cooking and healthy nutrition.
