Paul Prescott, PhD in East Syracuse
I am a professional ethicist and professor of philosophy who serves clients as a philosophical counselor. As a philosophical counselor, I serve those in need of a different kind of guidance than that provided by mental health counselors. Many problems in life are not psychological, or problems of mental health. Rather, they are ethical, intellectual, professional, or even spiritual. I provide a safe, supportive environment in which clients can explore issues of concern to them.
I also serve to support the work of mental health counselors. Anxiety, depression, grief, loss, major life transitions, and psychological trauma often confront people with complex ethical and intellectual challenges, which can interfere with therapeutic progress.
Clients include people from all walks of life. Veterans, survivors of sexual violence, social workers, and clergy of every faith are welcome. Philosophical counseling is not eligible for insurance coverage. Rates are on a sliding scale. Clients experiencing mental disorders are required to be in treatment with a licensed professional.
