About Me

My name is Teresa M. Lee and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of North Carolina, and a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) in Washington, DC. I received my Bachelors in Family and Community Services, Masters in Adult Education from East Carolina University and a Masters of Social Work from North Carolina State University. I have worked in mental health and substance abuse field since 2005. I enjoy working with individuals including adults, adolescents and children.

My clinical focus is centered around those that have concerns with anxiety, depression, sexual aggression and substance use. My therapeutic orientation is psychodynamic which includes aspects of Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral, Solution Focused and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I tailor to the needs of each individual client.

I strive to incorporate my knowledge and clinical practice experience into my work with clients. My belief is that our experiences early in life shape how we learn to manage challenges and can often impact our lives well into adulthood. My goal is to provide a safe and comfortable environment for my clients. I look forward to working with you.

Teresa is extremely attentive and always gives me a productive way to view what troubles me. I’ve been consistently empowered after our sessions and I am able to more effectively manage my depression and anxiety.

I really appreciate the support Teresa has provided in our sessions together. I love how personalized the experience is - I really feel heard and cared about. Each session we pick up where we left off as if no time has passed and we have a really great rapport.
