I cannot express how grateful I am to have met Giancarlo and worked with him. As someone who is really trying to grow into my own skin a bit more, and accept and understand parts of my identity, I couldn't have found a better person or professional to help.

I found he is very thoughtful and working on exactly what my needs are. His listening skills are brilliant, and ability to bring aspects that provoke thought are very good for me. It’s been a great experience.

Mr. Pia is a great listener, and seemed to understand me pretty much off the bat. He's currently offering me a ton of ways to help myself slow down and shut off the world for a while, which is something i desperately need and suck at lol. Our talks never feel like a full session, time flies by so fast. I get everything I need, we're able to just chat, and I trust him completely.
