Gian Paolo Girardi, MA, MS, University of Healing Arts Founder.
Gian Paolo was born in 1955 to an Italian/Spanish family in Chile. From early childhood he felt great interest in science and later for the humanities, especially Spiritual Psychology. At age 24, he graduated in engineering from the most prestigious University in Chile. After marrying Viviana their spiritual interests brought them to the US, where Gian Paolo completed a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology and obtained a California State License to practice psychotherapy. He has accumulated extensive experience from seventeen years of working with clients.
Eventually Gian Paolo renounced his license as a statement of personal independence from the tradition-laden mainstream, with its inherent limitations and over-regulations. He is presently devoted to his vision for the University of Healing Arts.
