ABOUT THE POND

We want you to find calmness and peace from the noise from daily life at The Pond.

The Pond Team

Dr. Vanessa Li founded The Pond in 2020 after over 10 years of working as a dedicated therapist in New York City. Her expertise in psychology and human relationships and her belief that therapy comes in multiple forms, Dr. Li looked outside herself to find other professionals who are specialized in music therapy, art therapy, and more to create a multi-faceted practice under one roof.

With a diverse group of backgrounds and specialties, The Pond has worked hard to make sure every therapist has the same heart-filled and genuine dedication to their clients and all are working towards an inclusive, welcoming and diverse environment for everyone they work with.

Welcome to The Pond

In nature, a pond is a small body of water that is calm enough to let sunlight shine through to its depths, illuminating things one may not otherwise see. The ripples of a pond teach us about interconnectivity and how one small movement creates countless others.

 

Our name is representative of who we are as a practice; our collective of professional psychotherapists will support and guide every individual’s commitment to personal growth through illumination and self-discovery. The Pond is a place we hope clients can gain a deeper sense of self-awareness, achieve calmness in the busy world- all to help them live their lives to the fullest potential. We seek to help clients create ripples with their own therapeutic work so clients can thrive in all aspects of life- relationships, health, work, and with themselves.
