"Over thousands of years, philosophers have developed tools to explore the good life--what makes life meaningful, joyful, and fulfilling. As a professional philosopher, I draw upon those tools to empower you think clearly, live purposefully, and choose confidently. In our sessions, I offer friendly and accessible conversation, compassionate listening, and a healthy dose of humor. Together, we investigate your deepest assumptions about what is true and important so we can challenge what is not working, develop what is, and find greater order, harmony, and power in your thoughts and actions. We awaken and cultivate your inner philosopher."

"I believe that the ability to grow is one that all humans naturally possess but that we need help to bravely enact the changes we desire. Our experience of life is shaped by the way we process the world. Sometimes we were heard and sometimes we felt invisible. Sometimes we knew what to do; often we did not. Counseling can help to restructure thinking patterns and shift responses. For me, counseling is a collaborative process where I'm able to help clients find awareness and compassion for themselves and others."
