Associate Psychologist or Psychotherapist

The mission of The Design Your Life Centre is to help people fulfill their life’s purpose, which we believe, is to be their authentic selves.  To do this, we help people understand early life patterns that no longer serve them so that they can consciously create new ones that do. This is what it means to Design Your Life. 

The Design Your Life Centre was founded by Dr. Stacy Thomas, Clinical Psychologist, who has over 20 years of experience, whose private practice has grown over the past four years from being a single-practitioner business to a multidisciplinary clinic that is revolutionizing the way mental health care is talked about and delivered.  

The Design Your Life Centre eagerly welcomes people who understand how important the customer experience is to our success. We’re looking for people who are driven to serve others, have deep passion for what they do and are involved in activities outside of work that serve their health, personal growth, and community. They aspire to become one of the best in the industry and always strive to exceed clients’ expectations.
