A Thinker's Guide To…
The Beginning: The Heartbreak
You may not know this, but I only moonlight as a podcaster. I’m a psychotherapist by day, or, when I’m feeling particularly cheesy: a professional heartbreaker. We all keep so much buried and defended against, that it’s hard to get to our most beautiful pieces without breaking ourselves open. I’m often pointing out, for myself and for others, where the pieces have landed so we can begin together how to fit them back together like a puzzle.
Today I want to tell you a story about a complicated man named Oliver, a fictive (aka not real) therapy client of mine. It starts with a phone call to feel each other out, and leads to years of therapy together. Join with me, as we follow the winding path of therapy and relationship.
How do you make sense of your own complexity and the complexity of the world? I genuinely want to know. Head to @therapyforthinkers on Instagram to fill me in.

More about A Thinker's Guide To…
A Thinker’s Guide To… is a podcast for thoughtful, curious observers, who have been collecting systems of meaning for years in a never-ending quest to understand what goes on in your inner world. You feel compelled to not only see what’s in your heart, but to savor the depth and complexity of your life.
I get it. Like you, I’m an endlessly curious soul who delights in thinking about things in unusual ways and asking questions that get under your skin. This is a space for us to discover the profound in the profane.
Join me each week as we tell stories and dig deep to extract their meaning, leaving you with key questions to ponder. Think of each episode as an existential sermon specifically designed for the secular thinkers. Together, we’ll think deeply so we can act boldly in a world undergoing profound transformation.
