While the majority of my training has focused on theoretical philosophy, Empowerment Through Thought is my first major project in applied philosophy. This organization is premised on the idea that many folks fail to flourish as a result of problematic thinking. Philosophical coaching is a one-on-one service where I use my training to help everyday folks work through their own problematic thinking. More broadly, Empowerment Through Thought seeks to help clients develop their own philosophical abilities so that when they face problematic thinking in the future, they have the means needed to sort through the issues themselves.
In order to make this transition to launching a major applied philosophy project, I have sought additional training. As of June 11, 2020 I regularly volunteer as a Crisis Counselor for the Crisis Text Line. As of July 20, 2020 I have Level 1 Certification in Philosophical Counseling from the American Philosophical Practitioners Association.
