LPC #3884 (Expires: 2020-07-01)


Written by E.M. on Sep 25, 2019 after counseling with Lee for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

I’ve gone through therapy before, but never have I ever had a counselor who understood me the way Lee does. She is patient, calls me on my nonsense, and makes me feel heard. The whole point of therapy is to be better, and I feel like Lee is helping me get on the path to wellness.
