Making Sense of Life and Living

Overview of Service

There is a need to make sense of life and living - a need to find meaning and coherence amid all the chaotic occurrences of our lives. 

Often this may seem like trying to arrange pieces of a puzzle that do not fit together, and this can lead to frustration - and even to depression and despair.

Philosophical counseling can help.

The first step in the process of philosophical counseling involves the realization that all of our decisions and actions are imbued with philosophical content. In other words, each reflects the outworking of our own personal philosophy – however muddied or unclear this might seem to us at the time.

In short, bad decisions are made for a reason. Hurtful actions are also made for a reason. And senseless patterns are repeated for a reason.

Two important goals of philosophical counseling are

  1. Help individuals identify and examine the reasons for their actions so they can better understand the philosophical framework within which they are (often unknowingly) working. The content of this framework can then be critically evaluated for sense and coherence.                                                                                                                                                          
  2. Help individuals understand central areas of concern in life where conceptual clarity are needed. General sections on "Client Issues" as well as "Christian Concerns" (see navigation bar above) are included to provide a description of areas that are often explored.

Practical areas such as moral conflict, personal responsibility, interpersonal relationships and career decisions are also explored.

I wish you the very best, and please remember: God's posture toward you is always one of tenderness and compassion, because anything opposed to this disposition is "strange" and "alien" to His benevolent heart of love (Isaiah 28:21; 1 John. 4:8).
