Vegan Lifestyle and Emotional Well-Being Study

SURVEY NOW CLOSED (April 18, 2022)

Thank you so much to all who participated in my vegan research survey over the past year.

I’m a licensed psychologist and a certified vegan lifestyle coach and educator.  I’m passionate about helping people move toward a vegan lifestyle, for their own health and well-being, as well as caring for all sentient beings and the planet.

What is the study about?  I’m interested in understanding more about the emotional, social, and spiritual impacts of living a vegan lifestyle, as part of my research for writing a book on this topic.  This topic deeply fascinates me, from the way that plant-powered nutrition nourishes the body and brain, to the way that vegan values nourish the heart and soul.

While society often views veganism as a lifestyle of restriction and deprivation, the experience of many vegans is one of abundance and fulfillment.  Many vegans describe an inner transformation as they move into a vegan lifestyle. 

And at the same time, there can also be emotional and social challenges that come with being vegans in a non-vegan world.

My hope is that the findings from this research will support vegans to live with even more purpose and fulfillment, and will inspire pre-vegans to step forward on to this compassionate and life-affirming path.

The survey will be open through March 31 is now closed as of 4/18/22.
