Associate Psychotherapist & Consultant
MA, MA, BFA
I am a Korean-American art therapist and art educator with an extensive background in working with people of all ages and abilities. As an art therapist, I enjoy operating from the lenses of Relational Cultural Theory and Narrative Therapy as both frameworks seek to examine dominant ideologies while providing opportunities for dismantling systemic barriers and for recontextualizing issues by examining how these norms shape self-concepts and realities, especially for those who do not identify with dominant cultures. As a disabled and neurodivergent 1.5 generation immigrant who has worked with others with disabilities for most of my career, I understand the unique realities of existing in spaces where you may not feel truly understood and work from a strengths-based perspective to empower clients and help them better understand themselves within the context of the world around them.
I received my BFA in Art Education and her MA in Art Education with an Emphasis in Special Populations from Moore College of Art & Design. After teaching art for six years, she pivoted her career and graduated from Drexel University with an MA in Art Therapy and Counseling. As a graduate student at Drexel, Lee founded a group for students of color who continue to advocate for anti-oppressive curricula and culturally responsive mental health supports for BIPOC clients and clinicians. I am an adjunct professor at Moore and serve as Director of Research at the Asian Americans with Disabilities Initiative to provide investigative research, advocacy, and resources for and about Asian Americans with disabilities.
