About Me

Here, there is Hope and Tranquility. My philosophy of counseling is that 'serene tranquility' coupled with 'bringing in balance' is cornerstone to the rejuvenation of Hope. It's the road to recovery; for restoration of faith from doubt/grief/loss; for personal growth and development; for understanding self and functioning in relationships with others; and, with building self-confidence and -esteem geared towards recognizing inherent personal qualities of worth, value, and validation. CBT helps to understand the functional roles of emotions, both positive and negative, and behaviors. It is one of warmth, that is Results-Oriented.
As a Licensed Professional Counselor specializing in my chosen theoretical orientation of Cognitive Behavior Therapy, I join in collaboration with my clients demonstrating warmth, empathy, and genuineness--fundamental to the development of a therapeutic relationship. CBT is designed to bring in balance with use of tools and resources based on functioning. I serve with fidelity; and am here to assist you in meeting your goals and counseling needs.

I can’t explain the relationship I feel Ms. Lee & I have created. I truly love her and thank her for giving me the help I know I needed. She’s an amazing therapist who is truly born with this kind of expertise.

I love that she gives lessons to learn more about me. She communicates and understands when i forget i have a session. I’m not usually comfortable with strangers but she has a way of easing your nerves.

Rastonya is the perfect ear. It’s the perfect balance of a safe space but also work/growth. Since our first session I knew that I could let my walls down in her presence and be vulnerable. She is wonderful.

Rastonya is a personable expert in her field who does a great job at practicing while remaining relatable. She listens and helps to clarify what I struggle to articulate. She also provides exercises to help me navigate through my challenges and reach my goals.

Addresses my concerns in a direct way and gives me much to think about.

I came to therapy when getting out of bed was getting harder and harder, when some depression started interfering with my daily life, and all of the self care that had kept me afloat over a lifetime stopped working.

Ms. Lee was a lifeline.

Her counseling style is very goals-oriented. She said that I was the pilot of my own life and that she was my navigator - so true in our sessions. She helped me identify where I wanted to go, and helped me find all the things were standing in my way. Every time I went into negative or unproductive mindsets, she pulled me back towards those goals, and those obstacles.

She is a keen listener, and is often a mirror that helps me see things from a different, more productive perspective. She helps me re-focus on what’s really important when I’m sidetracked, and redirects me back to my goals. She noticed unhealthy habits about myself I had never noticed, and helps me figure out how to break them - all without judgment.

Ms. Lee is easy to talk to and always seems to understand the bigger pictures issues that affect me. I feel safe when talking to her, and always feel seen and heard.

I could not have asked for a better counselor.

Ms. Lee is phenomenal. She is very qualified for what she does and her approach is so homey and personable to you. I would 1,000% recommend Ms. Lee. If you have been connected to her look no further. You’re in the right place! Especially for intuitives, empaths and introverts.

I was skeptical about joining therapy but once I was matched my concerns were easily melted away by how easy it was to talk to my counselor and they advised she gave. She made me feel non-judged, safe and like my concerns were being heard. I give her a 5 out of 5!
