“Your Story Matters”
Being human is both very beautiful, and can also be very difficult. Our bodies hold stories of great beauty, and also great shame. Often times stories of pain, shame and harm gets minimized and not tended to. As a result, these stories are held in our bodies and can lead to anxiety, depression, loss of connection, anger, sadness, self-doubt, negative self-esteem, overwhelming emotions and disorientation. If you can relate to this, you are not alone and I am here for you.
My name is Alexander Gianopulos (you can just call me Alexi). I’ll admit that trusting another person with your story, especially the vulnerable parts, requires a lot of courage. One of the most kind ways to engage our stories is in the safety of human connection. As such, I genuinely seek to provide a confidential space where you feel safe, seen, heard, supported, fully accepted andwhere your authentic self can shine through and flourish.
I have experience helping individuals who are going through a variety of challenges, including family of origin issues, anxiety, depression, trauma, life-transitions, addictions, relationships, spirituality and faith, spiritual abuse, unwanted sexual behaviors, adult children from immigrant families and Third Culture Kids. Having spent my formative years in multiple countries, I am
mindful of how culture can impact your wellbeing and healing process.
In my free time, I enjoy playing the drums, cooking, going to the beach and nature walks, and traveling.
I currently hold an M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Wheaton College. It would be a privilege and an honor to come alongside you to hear your story, collaborate, and offer support during this season in your life’s journey.
