I am a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist and School Wellness Counselor with over 20 years of clinical experience. My work as a therapist is centered on providing a safe place for my clients to openly express their thoughts and feelings. I see therapy as a journey of self-empowerment. As a therapist, my responsibility is to support my clients as they go on this very personal, emotional journey. I am committed to providing my clients with the tools they need in order to better navigate their lives and enhance their relationships.
I am a graduate of California State University, Sacramento. I hold a B.S. in Criminal Justice and an M.S. in Counseling Psychology. In addition, I am an active member of CAMFT (California Association of Marriage Family Therapists). I have worked in many aspects of mental health including hospitals, clinics, treatment centers, and school settings. I have a passion for working with others to help them achieve their fullest potential. I am always humbled to hear that the passion I express for my work makes me a favorite among my students, parents, peers, and clients. I look forward to being able to travel with you on this journey.

I was in a bad place before my visits with Chyrissee. She has really given me the perspective I needed for the tough things I'm going through. I look forward to every session with her and leave feeling heard and understood.

Chyrissee Lee is a very empathic and educated therapist. She hears me out, responds with empathy and understanding and helps me see from a different perspective or encourages me on the track I’m on if she knows it’s a healthy view. Her expertise in narcissism has really helped me understand what I am dealing with more and has helped me cope as I grieve that I won’t be getting the familial relationship that I wanted. It’s been great having her as a therapist and I would highly recommend her.
