My Philosophical Counseling Practice
Many of us are confronted with moral and existential dilemmas that call for exploration and inquiry. My aim is to provide an alternative method of exploring how best to solve the specific moral or existential dilemma you may encounter. Sometimes it's very difficult to turn to family or friends about specific dilemmas we encounter for a variety of reasons; many of these reasons are avoided when discussing them with a philosophical counselor.
Some of us are curious about what the purpose of life is, how should we seek meaning in our lives, work, and how we should navigate our inter-personal relationships. My aim is to provide an opportunity to delve into this curiosity using my extensive philosophical background.
Lastly, we often look for new and fresh approaches to solve complex problems. As a trained philosopher I am positioned well to offer different avenues to tackle life's problems.
Our first consultation we will discuss your goals for our work together. Your questions, insights, and queries (about yourself or your life) dictate our conversations. My job is to be a guide and a partner, helping you explore these issues through philosophical insights that let us clarify, deepen, resolve or reevaluate them so that we can move on with or without them. Through our conversations, hopefully, we will discover what your beliefs and values are, essentially what ‘your philosophy’ is, and figure out, how we can best make it work for you. To reiterate, I’m not here to impose a way of thinking on you, but rather to help you inquire into yourself, as a key to understanding yourself. Our sessions are tailored to your needs and interest, which may include:
> Interpersonal relationships
> Finding meaning and purpose in your career
> Anger management
> Conflict, compromise, and resolution in the public and private
> Pleasure, happiness, and ‘balance’ in work and life
> Aspirations, decisions, and regret in your life
> Compassion Fatigue at home and at work
