Dr. Lee joined the faculty in the Counseling Psychology Ph.D. program in Fall, 2020. She was previously at Seton Hall University between Fall 2015 and Spring 2019, during which time she mentored doctoral students in their research and conducted her own research on bicultural therapists, negotiating gender roles across bicultural contexts, resolving bicultural conflict in psychotherapy, and examining race talk in psychotherapy. She also taught classes on theories and techniques in counseling psychology, practicum, qualitative research, and race/ethnicity in multicultural counseling. She left Seton Hall in May, 2019 to pursue full-time clinical work at the Debra Simon Center for Integrative Behavioral Health & Wellness at Hackensack University Medical Center. There, she conducted individual, couple, and family therapy along with facilitating an interpersonal process group for people with chronic interpersonal difficulties. She is still a per diem psychologist at Hackensack University Medical Center, where she provides individual therapy, primarily from a psychodynamic orientation while incorporating sociocultural and systemic contexts. She also sees couples and families, integrating various couples and systems theories.

Dr. Lee completed her APA-accredited pre-doctoral internship at the Albany Psychology Consortium and completed her post-doctoral fellowship at Albany Medical Center/Albany Medical college. Dr. Lee conducts research on bicultural identity, racial/cultural factors in psychotherapy, the intersections of culture, race, and gender, and critical consciousness. She mainly uses qualitative methods situated within a constructivist or critical paradigm. As a research mentor, she believes in the importance of the holistic development of her mentees, as a person and as a psychologist in training.
