I have a flair for helping people effect positive change in their lives. My offices are comfortable safe spaces to talk about difficult things and make tough decisions. The road to emotional wellness can be painful and challenging, so I try very hard to be encouraging and supportive while change is occurring. Hurt, pain and anger do not define who we are; it opens our emotional pathways to inform us of the need and time for change. Depression is usually an indication of the depth of personal disruption, so when it’s appropriate, I offer advice to validate feelings, encourage healing and to dismantle irrational thinking.

Perceptive, patient, full tool box after years of working in tough places. I don’t like talking to much of anyone and I don’t like talking about the tough stuff. I like talking about the tough stuff with Dr Lee. I feel lucky I found her.

I recently started therapy with Dr. Lee. She is very professional and a good listener. I love that she is educated yet very down to earth and able to relate. Dr. Gay feedback was very helpful. She is caring. compassionate and I would definitely recommended her.

She is determined to get to the bottom of things, to see the root cause of issues and address them. She offers a new and refreshing perspective. She listens and shares some of her personal experience making her very relatable. patients/clients are truly fortunate to be able to work with her and I am glad to count myself among them.
