Existential Concerns

Stack of Books

Common Existential Topics:

  • Death

  • Isolation

  • Identity

  • Freedom

  • Meaning and Purpose

So many of life's bestselling books, greatest talks, and deepest philosophical musings have to do with human nature and our basic desire for meaning. We want to feel like our life has meaning, purpose, and that we are living up to our full potential. But what many of us struggle with is finding that meaning and fulfillment in life. When we have feelings of hopelessness, loneliness, when we question the meaning of existence, when we question our core beliefs, when we don't know who we are or what we really want out of life, when we've been diagnosed with a terminal illness, when we experience loss, or have a fear of death or the unknown. We often find ourselves pushed out of our normal routines and uncertain of how to move forward. The goal in existential therapy is to slow down and use the process of discovery to help you identify your authentic life goals, develop a clearer understanding of your lived experiences, and to become better able to pursue that which is meaningful.
