From Our Editors
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
My practice focuses on areas where clients may have existential distress, including aging, anxiety, relationship issues, and grief. Philosophical therapy is logical therapy; I help clients identify, repair, and overcome their emotional reasoning.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I want to use my skill set to help others flourish and become the best version of themselves. My ideal client does not need to have a background in Philosophy in order to benefit from philosophical counseling. I specialize in issues of ethics, rational decision making, and moral psychology.
What do you love most about your job?
It is rewarding to be able to help people work through personal issues and challenges by using my philosophical training. Philosophical counseling is an emerging field of counseling and serves as a complementary therapy, or as an alternative to traditional psychotherapy.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
"Her insight and ability to intuitively read subtext helped us make more progress within an hour than I had made doing months of conventional talk therapy. Not only is Dr. Schuster well-versed in philosophical concepts, she is also a highly sensitive and empathetic person who cares deeply." -Tanvi P
