Lee is very helpful. She listens very well and challenges me with thought provoking questions. She talks to me on my level which I appreciate. I never feel any judgement from Lee, even when I’m judging myself. She is very encouraging.

Lee is not only a great therapist but she’s a wonder and a delight to work with. We only just began but the woman is an angel, talking to her is easy and delightful and she is so down to earth. I don’t feel like I’m at therapy with her I feel like I’m with an old friend just one who’s very good at unraveling the enigma that is my brain!

Lee has been a great match for me this year. I appreciate her sense of humor and realism, and have been getting a lot out of our conversations, from validation and reassurance, to critical thinking and concrete suggestions for deeper inner work.

I look forward to our next session and I’m coming up on 2 months with better help.

I found Lee's guidance to be extremely helpful. I reached out to BetterHelp for support dealing with anxiety. Lee provided me with tools to work through the anxiety and better deal with the issue. Definitely recomend!

Lee is very experienced and offers supportive, thoughtful advice and feedback in our sessions. I was amazed by how quickly Lee came to understand my primary concerns and goals with counseling. With brief 30 minute sessions conducted over the phone, one would think that really feeling heard and understood would be impossible, but I knew Lee was a great match for me within the first few minutes of our first session. I especially appreciate her willingness to suggest various modalities and methods of therapy, depending on the individual and their beliefs or tendencies.

Lee is spectacular very great active listening and a comfortable 70-30 conversation. And the short amount of sessions I've had I feel like we're reaching to great things and I'm looking forward to continuing my conversations with Lee.
