Originally from Santa Monica, CA, Lee holds a master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University and has extensive experience as a therapist, coach and leader. Before joining the HG team, for nine years, she counseled adults and children in a wide variety of settings and formats, including families, couples, groups and individuals. Within that context, Lee also led local community programs for emotionally and behaviorally disturbed youth and served as a mental health consultant to the Department of Social Services. She has been coaching with the Handel Group since 2007 and became a Senior Coach in 2009.
Lee credits the goal-oriented, hands-on approach of The Handel Method® as what led her to supplement her therapy background and train as a Handel Group Life Coach. “I love how efficient and effective The Handel Method® is. The results are tangible and show up fast.” While she points out that the methods are quite different and she does not act as therapist in her work as an HG Coach, she does use some of the same skill set. Lee brings to her work an insightful, thoughtful, straightforward and genuine approach, and facilitates remarkable and lasting change in her clients.
Lee loves working with people and is touched and honored by those who are willing to share their lives with her. She currently lives in Ojai, California with her husband, son and daughter.
