Joseph F. Hartel, Ph.D., Ph.L., M.A.
Certified in Philosophical Counseling and in Logic-Based Therapy,
Philosophy Teacher for over 30 years at the University level
Providing Philosophical Counseling and Logic-Based Therapy for Adults.
Philosophical counseling and Logic-Based Therapy help clients deal with many kinds of problems that people confront in the course of everyday life. Often, these problems can be addressed by helping the counselee examine and reassess their reasoning and/or worldview. Such problems include but are not limited to: midlife crises, career changes, moral issues, and loss of meaning. Summing up: philosophical counseling involves a study of your ideas and how they affect your life – and how improving your ideas can change your life for the better. Philosophical counselors/consultants do not address mental disorders. They refer such matters to licensed, mental health professionals.
The first session of philosophical counseling is complimentary unless the individual and counselor both agree to proceed with counseling/consulting. When both agree to continue with the counseling relationship, the client will pay a fee for the first session based on the counselor’s sliding scale. No insurance.
Dr. Hartel is a member of the American Philosophical Practitioners Association, the National Philosophical Counseling Association, and The American Philosophical Association. He is a registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance (500 hour) and has training in Past Life Regression Therapy from Dr. Brian Weiss. He is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Divine Word College in Epworth, Iowa.
