Over thousands of years, philosophers have developed powerful tools to explore the good life—what makes life meaningful, joyful, and fulfilling. You can learn to use these tools, and to live with greater depth, purpose, and confidence.
Hi, I'm Dr. Danielle LaSusa. I have studied, taught, and coached philosophy for nearly two decades.
Philosophy, which simply means "love of wisdom," is about purpose, identity, and seeing the world clearly. In our sessions, I offer friendly and accessible conversation, compassionate listening, and a healthy dose of humor to help you think through the practical concerns of everyday life.
I talk with clients all over the country, both remotely by phone and video chat, and in-person in Portland, Oregon, and I specialize in serving new mothers.
I love helping people discover new perspectives and ways of thinking, and I have seen these shifts transform lives. I want to help you transform yours. Let's awaken your inner philosopher.
What Does It Mean to Make a Person?
What could be more philosophically confounding than creating a human being? How do you wrap your brain around the huge transitions in identity, values, responsibility, relationships that comes with motherhood? What if being a mom isn't all what you thought it would be?
Get help sorting through these changes and claim your own identity as a mother that feels powerful, centered, and whole.
