You set the agenda in Philosophical Counseling – your questions, concerns, curiosities.  I help you explore these issues - suggesting ways to frame, formulate, clarify, deepen, lighten, resolve or reevaluate these issues – and sometimes ways to move beyond them or set them aside.   

Examples of topics to explore:

  • Meaning and purpose

  • Values and virtues

  • Conflict and compromise

  • Pleasure and happiness

  • Aspirations and regret

  • Change and loss

  • Suffering and mortality

  • Freedom and power

  • Wealth and generosity

  • Responsibility and justice

For individual counseling, we can meet in-person in Washington, DC or online (via Skype or Zoom).

The cost for a one-hour session is $100.  A three-session package is $275, and a five-session package is $400.

Not sure if Philosophical Counseling is for you?  I offer a free, no-obligation 15-minute telephone consultation to discuss your interests, what I can offer, and how we might work together.  

“Let no one who is young put off engaging in philosophy, nor anyone who is old weary of it.  For no one is either too young or too old to attend to the health of the soul. To say either that it is not yet the time to engage in philosophy or that the time has passed is like saying that it is either not the time or no longer the time for happiness.” 


 Epicurus, “Letter to Menoeceus” (circa 310-270 BC)
