Welcomes You

We only become what we are by the radical and deep-seated refusal of that which others have made of us. 

- Jean-Paul Sartre

About Me


I have been working as a psychologist-psychotherapist since 2005, providing individual and group psychotherapy and counselling services.

I was trained in Systemic Therapy and Counseling at the Systemic Institute of Thessaloniki and I completed my training in Trauma therapy with EMDR in 2013.

I collaborated for many years with non-governmental organizations and institutions in Greece, where I organized and coordinated programs and actions to support idividuals on their journey toward rehabilitation for addictions and other socially vulnerable groups. In addition, I provided interventions and programs of prevention and Health Education for parents and teaching staff. During this time,  I was also working as a psychologist in private practice for individuals, couples and families who presented with a wide and vast range of challenges in the area of mental health and personal growth.

My husband and I moved with our child to Toowoomba at the end of 2016. Since being in Australia, I have worked with Lives Lived Well before moving into part-time private practice in 2021 at Magnolia House Psychology & Therapy until the end of 2022


In 2023 I started to practice as a sole practitioner at Downs Specialist Centre. 

I graduated with a Master Of Clinical Psychology from the University of Southern Queensland. I am an AHPRA-approved psychologist and Clinical Registrar, a member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS), a Clinical member of the Australian Association of Family Therapy (AAFT) and a member of the EMDR Association of Australia (EMDRAA).
