As you learn about therapist Mateja Petje you see my experience is vast including an extensive background working with families and at-risk children and adolescents. Although now, I primarily work with adults. I have more than fifteen years of experience as a counselor in the mental health field. Others suffered from Depression, PTSD, losses, and failed relationships. With my help, they are now leading healthy and fulfilling lives. This is the power of therapy and what can happen when people receive the help they need.
Education- Training– Work Experience
In the past, I’ve worked with many prominent agencies in Miami-Dade and Broward County. Some of those include Switchboard of Miami, Department of Children and Families, Memorial Health Care Systems, Chrysalis Center, and Jewish Community Services. Back in 2008, I obtained my license in Marriage and Family Therapy. From there I went to work in the managed care industry while building my private practice in Broward County.
Trained as a Professional Life Coach
Years ago I also acquired extensive training as a Professional Life Coach at the Institute of Life Coach Training founded by Dr. Patrick Williams. This training is invaluable as it is specifically tailored to psychotherapists. As a result of this training, I am now better equipped to assist both my therapy and coaching clients. Furthermore, I was trained in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). This was by a prominent Master Trainer in NLP and Hypnosis, Dr. Yvonne Oswald. Instead of spending years in therapy, my clients receive immediate and repeatedly positive results. They are able to change their beliefs and behaviors very rapidly.
