Existential Listening

Existential listening is a private, confidential conversation where you can share life’s challenges with a willing listener. I offer human connection and a listening ear. My goal is to listen, connect, understand, ask questions, and offer a space where you can ponder your own approach to life’s challenges. I believe that connecting with another human in private conversation is sacred.

I do not give advice, but instead, I seek to help you clarify your own thinking. I assist you in listening to your own voice and finding your own way. I believe that the solutions to life’s problems must come from within.

When I listen, I seek to support you, ask questions, and give you space to reflect on life’s problems. I seek to help you listen to your own voice. I believe you have answers to your life’s problems.

“We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak.” – Epictetus

Philosophical Approach

I take an existential-philosophical approach when listening to another person. This means that I try to understand where you are coming from. I ask questions to gain clarity about your values and what makes sense for your life. I do not impose my views on you, but rather seek to understand your views and values.

Judgement Free

Every person is different. I will never judge you based on the values you choose to live by. I seek to understand your values in the context of your life as a whole.

Stigma Free

I do not diagnose or categorize people. Each person is unique. I view each person as having unique circumstances, values and reasons for how they live. I seek to listen and understand you as an individual.

Confidential

All conversations are 100% confidential. No exceptions.
