Dr. Lee Keyes

Psychologist

About Me

Hello! I am Dr. Lee Keyes, a licensed psychologist in the State of Alabama. I received my PhD in Counseling Psychology from Texas A&M University in 1991 and was licensed that same year. Since then I have worked as a psychologist in higher education, private practice, and an inpatient psychiatric hospital. I have also served in leadership roles in state and international organizations, have provided 42 conference presentations, and published 30 professional articles and one book. I currently also am a consultant and provide educational development services to mental health professionals, administrators, health service entities, and anyone else interested in developing sound mental health programs.

My psychotherapy orientation includes interpersonal and dynamic approaches, though I am not a strict adherent to any particular school of thought. I work in a collaborative, problem-solving manner, and make adjustments depending on client feedback and evidence of progress. A fundamental belief of mine is that people generally think, feel, and do things for good reasons, and the first step involves understanding those reasons which then forms the basis of choices about what needs to change. I work to help clients understand themselves, and to live congruently with self, others, and the world around them. In this regard I have the most experience with stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family dynamics, communication skills, career development, and living assertively.

I look forward to working with you in the pursuit of congruence and satisfaction with life.*

Dr Keyes has been highly effective in helping me navigate my personal relationships while providing sound advice and guidance. He listens extremely well and has been influential in helping me understand the root cause of certain things in my life. I feel extremely fortunate that BetterHelp paired me with Dr Keyes.

Amazingly helpful

Dr Keyes is a wonderful human being. He is so experienced in what he does that he manages to recognize one's individuality, while simultaneously making the person get back in touch with themselves and recognize their own humanity. He is quick to identify what might be the core of an issue, able to assertively guide and keep even the most strayed of minds on track, keeping one accountable with one's own boundaries in how one treats/talks to themselves, while somehow leaving it open-ended for the participant to explore and learn more about themselves. A great soundboard and life coach, able to help shift the perspective on the inner light within.. helping kindle the inner flame in that it may illuminate enough shadows of the dark it does not touch in order to not be so afraid to just be, by work of shedding some of his own.

Dr. Keyes offers both thoughtful rationality and compassionate understanding and is very knowledgeable about evidence-based practices that are demonstrated to work. I could not recommend him more highly for anyone attempting to get insight or make systematic lifestyle changes.

I have only talked to him once on the phone and we message here and there but so far he seems like a nice man he is very helpful and a good listener and he makes you feel comfortable when talking to him.

I can’t imagine not having Dr. Keyes for guidance and wisdom through my hard times.

Written on Apr 01, 2020 after therapy with Lee for 2 days on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and coping with life changes

Dr. Keyes asked all of the right questions; many that my psychiatrist failed to mention. He was also a great listener and heard me out instead of interrupting. He was very personable and very understanding. I highly recommend him to anyone that is in need of a counselor/therapist/psychologist. Looking forward to my next meeting with him!
