Born 1966 in Athens, Greece, raised in Togo, West Africa until 1975, I decided early to become a pediatrician.
During medschool from 1983-89 I got irritated by a state of the art medicine focused on symptoms, not the patients. The limits of this approach, along with the many side effects of the drugs used, let me search for other means of healing. I soon got fascinated with the interaction of mind and body and the potential it offers for therapeutic intervention.
Still in medschool I got engaged in acupuncture training, as well as studies of hatha yoga, tai chi, diverse forms of silent and moving meditation during extensive trips to India and Thailand.
Intending to build a solid orthodox base for a comprehensive complementary approach I decided to complete a residency in pediatrics in the US. Simultaneously , in Florida as much as in California, I pursued training in Zen-meditation and mindfulness. From 1996 onwards I engaged intensely in homeopathy, including work for the California Homeopathic Medical Society.
After my return to Munich in 2002 I was able to deepen my knowledge in homeopathy, psychosomatic medicine and naturopathy through continuing education as well as work experience in different pediatric offices and hospitals. In my own private office I further focused on acupuncture and needle free techniques like laserpuncture and patient education in acupressure.
And, by the way, I am a mother of three great grown up boys!
