I provide guidance to those who desire greater mental freedom, stronger cultural access and richer relationships. I approach suffering and alienation as a problem of culture rather than psychology. I work to facilitate the individual's ability to think freely and truthfully, to solve problems creatively, and to follow inner desire without succumbing to anxiety.
As a consulting anthropologist, I have found that many people benefit from human science as a powerful method of self-realization. Every human being has a basic instinct to lifelong cultural development. From bodily communication to mathematical reason, culture is a complex object that you have to acquire for yourself. Lack of cultural acquisition can imply trauma or neglect, and it may also mean a person has never had access to the experience necessary for realizing an important part of human potential. Paradoxically, we cannot know what we are missing until we experience what we had missed. My job is to help you become more conscious of the causal relations that have conditioned your development, recognize what techniques and skills will help you live a more satisfying life, and act as an instructor in the arts of virtue.
Clients have come to me to work through many sources of suffering including loneliness, nihilism, melancholy, social anxiety, jealousy, obsessions, arousal/hookup/porn addiction, career issues and workaholism, relationship problems, intimacy problems, identity crises, sexual orientation and gender questions or conflicts, and political/ religious conflicts. I am not a licensed psychotherapist and I do not give medical advice or make medical diagnoses.See more
