“Say More About That” Show Notes: Episode #20 – Let's get philosophical

Jeff Guenther, MS, LPC on Jul 14, 2019 in Say More About That

Jeff and Danielle LaSusa, a philosopher, talk about philosophical counseling and what exactly that is. They discuss how Danielle became a philosopher and whether or not she thinks it's okay to call comedians "modern day philosophers." Danielle describes an unbelievable story about her break from reality after she had a baby and how she was determined to get better and be a stable mom for her daughter. She takes some digs at Jeff because she doesn't respect his favorite philosopher. Jeff can't seem to let go of whether or not a tree falling in the forest makes a sound if nobody is around to hear it. And they both do a decent job at solving most of life's mysteries. 

Learn more about Danielle and her philosophical counseling practice at her website. Check out her podcast, Think Hard.

This episode covers:

  • How Danielle became a philosopher.
  • How she started her philosophical counseling practice and what exactly that looks like.
  • The difference between mental health counseling and philosophical counseling. 
  • Her scary break from reality after she gave birth to her daughter and what she did in order to get grounded again. 
  • How Jeff decided to cheat his way through one of his philosophy classes and learned his lesson the hard way.
