'I do not intend to tiptoe through life, to arrive safely at death"
I'm Vanessa, Founder and Principal Psychologist at The Well Lived Life Co.,
I am passionate about helping the members of our community thrive. Funny thing is, I never wanted to be a psychologist, I thought they were a stuffy bunch of people who didn't have a clue... long story short, here I am, a registered psychologist, and part of a wonderful community of psychologists who are miles away from being stuffy. To put it simply, we just want to help you live your best life.
I tell you this so that you know I get why you might be hesitant and unsure of talking to someone about your life, your hopes and your dreams - and - I know what it's like to see people at the other end of that, who have made the commitment to themselves that they are worth the investment so that they can start living their best lives.
I truly care for all of my clients, and work with them to find the answers they seek. Since 2012 I have worked as a psychologist with an array of clients all with different backgrounds, issues, relationships, you name it, but all with the same goal, to live a better life, away from the struggles that they have been experiencing.
After having my first baby in 2016 I found a natural pull towards helping parents adjust to life after a baby (because, man it's hard!) and have worked with many parents or soon to be parents since.
I would love to work with you to help build your best life!
