Meet Ivan

My name is Dr. Ivan Guajardo (a.k.a. “Dr. G”). I am a philosopher, teacher, and philosophical counselor.

I am certified in Logic-Based Therapy (LBT), a philosophical form of therapy designed to help people with their life struggles by exposing irrational beliefs and replacing them with philosophies that foster well-being.

I have extensive experience teaching students of different backgrounds how to use philosophical ideas and methods to identify what matters most to them, define and achieve important goals, and make better moral decisions.

I am a professor of philosophy at Virginia Western Community College, and have published on free will, some negative impacts social media has on critical thinking, and the nature of self-love.

I enjoy good food, exercising, reading, traveling, playing with my dogs, and talking about philosophy and current affairs with family and friends.
