About me

In my work with couples, I found that difficulties arise out of challenges in communication. Sometimes, couples sound as if they are having two different conversations. In couples therapy, romantic partners learn to align their relationship with their stated goals. I do not make decisions for couples. I teach them to have difficult conversations about hard choices so they can resolve their conflict, gain insight into one another, and find consensus in their relationship life.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Gay Lee. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Regain might be different.

Dr. Lee has been attentive, an active listener, provides well-considered and thoughtfully-delivered validation as well as challenges aspects of our situation which need greater attention. She does so in ways which are motivating and aspirational and which are not condescending, no critical, and not demeaning. I am looking forward to a long, productive relationship with Dr. Lee.

Dr. Lee was alway professional and patient . She understood both of our needs and wants . And her first priority was to make sure we worked hard to stay together.

Dr. Gay Lee is a spectacular therapist and an even more INCREDIBLE person overall!

Here level of honest transparency and ability to guide couples toward identifying their "why" along with root causes to problem, as opposed to their symptoms, is an extraordinary skill that she possesses. Me and my partner are most grateful to have experienced her practice and I would highly recommend her services to anyone willing to do the real work of self-analysis, healing, and adaptation.

We’ve only had a few sessions with Gay, but she’s been wonderful at making us feel heard individually and as a couple and in helping us prioritize our relationship. We look forward to our next session!

Gay Lee is a counsellor that dives straight to the heart of the problem. She listenes to what is said and what is unsaid and doesn't leave a problem to be solved another day. Gay is compassionate, patient, had a great sense of humour to help in sticky conversations. Gay shares her knowledge through her years of practice and gives practical task to ensure that you are still putting in the work before your next session. I would highly recommend Gay to any couple who want to get straight to the heart of the matter and rebuild their relationship one session at a time.

Gay is amazing! She’s really helping me and my husband to work through issues we’ve never been able to tackle and she gives us tangible tools to be able to communicate on a more positive and deeper level.

Work with me!
