“My favorite thing about being a therapist is being in the room with clients experiencing emotions and telling parts of their story that have been ‘off limits.' As Mister Rogers said, ‘anything mentionable is manageable.’”
Lee received his Bachelor’s degree from the University of Tennessee with a double major in History and Philosophy. He received his Master’s degree from the University of Chicago in Clinical Social Work with a concentration in Contextual Behaviorism. Lee completed his clinical internship at the Cook County Hospital working with patients with HIV/AIDs. Post-grad, Lee has worked for The Renfrew Centers of Chicago and Nashville in various roles treating eating disorders and co-occurring disorders. We are thrilled to have Lee working part-time for True North Counseling in addition to his role as Team Lead at The Renfrew Center of Nashville, where he is responsible for program oversight and the clinical supervision of therapists.
Lee works with clients 18+. He has extensive training and a passion for treating those in the LGBTQ+ community, particularly young adults exploring their identities. Lee also treats those going through life transitions, relationship struggles, eating disorders/disordered eating, depression, and anxiety.
In his free time, you’ll find Lee hiking, camping, and exploring greenways with his dog. If he wasn’t a therapist, Lee says he’d probably be a zookeeper!
