Professional Interests

Lee has worked professionally in collegiate mental health and views emerging adulthood as a specialty area. So much changes during our time at college including identity development, values exploration, changing relationship dynamics. Lee recognizes that for many this is the first time they have had the opportunity to access mental health care. Lee also specializes in identity-based work supporting gender, sexual, and romantic minority (GSRM) communities. 

Lee believes in an integrated care approach that emphasizes holistic wellness in an effort to improve mental health. Lee believes in a feminist approach to therapy that examines the larger systems that affect us as individuals and uses the relationship he creates with his clients as a mechanism for success. Other areas of clinical interest include healthy masculinity, sex, kink, polyamory, and ethical non-monogamy. 

*while sex addiction and porn addiction are listed as areas of specialty, Lee approaches these issues in alignment with AASECT and their position can be reviewed further here: https://www.aasect.org/position-sex-addiction

Lee enjoys cycling, spending time with friends and family, finding a good movie to watch, trying new restaurants here in Tucson, gaming, and receiving cuddles from his cat Olive.
