She is very passionate about Psychology and writes monthly articles for Theravive.com, where she discusses a variety of contemporary topics.Hilda specializes in working with youth, adults and families that have been impacted by trauma. She believes that we all can experience trauma in many ways. It can be the neglect and abuse we suffered from, as well as exposure to different types of crime. No matter the form, trauma always has a significant and complex impact on our well-being. This impact can often be seen in development of different symptoms, which may escalate to a point of a mood, anxiety, conduct, or even a personality disorder. Given the nature of trauma and the turmoil these arising symptoms can cause, trauma can be very difficult to face and cope with appropriately. To facilitate this healing process, in her work, Hilda uses an integrative approach tailored to suit her client’s unique values, needs, experiences, and circumstances. She finds this kind of approach important because it promotes healing through a non-judgemental, interpersonal, supportive, and cooperative therapeutic relationship. A therapeutic relationship that is open to the use of various elements of specific therapies.Hilda also provides services in Croatian, Serbian, Bosnian, and Montenegrin.

When we are in a crisis or feel overwhelmed by problems we are also most open to a new solution. People often avoid psychological help because they are afraid that problems mean there is something wrong with them. In fact, “problems” usually consist of solutions that are no longer working.Psychological assessment, treatment or consultation can help you find a new perspective and a more effective approach. Instead of looking for “badness” or “brokenness” we help identify the underlying wounds that result in life’s problems. Our experienced psychologists use a healing perspective to provide a broad range of professional services. We assist children, adults, couples and families. We treat a wide range of mental health difficulties including depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship conflicts, and challanges in coping with school or work environments.
