I really enjoy talking with Tony - he leaves me space to explore my own feelings and examine them, but also reorients me and helps me see connections and patterns that I otherwise might shy away from. I'm a more joyful, balanced person because of the time I've spent with him.

Tony Lee is truly one of the most understanding and empathetic therapists I’ve ever worked with. He takes the time to allow you to express your concerns in length, all while attentively and actively listening to every word. Not only does he display compassion towards his clients but also challenges to push past their hardships. Never pushing to a place of discomfort, but as a way to help you grow and gain a deeper perspective of the problem at hand. I appreciate his dedication to his work, he truly cares for all of his clients. I would recommend anyone looking for an attentive, empathetic, and skilled therapist to reach out to Tony Lee!
