Therapist – St. George Center
Lee was introduced to and deeply inspired by the concepts behind family therapy while he was an undergraduate student at Utah Valley University. After completing his degree in family studies at UVU, Lee earned a master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and a certificate of advanced study in trauma informed practice from Syracuse University. A major component of his training at SU was in working with ethnic and cultural diversity, and with the LGBTQ+ community, receiving specific training in transgender issues. Lee received further trauma certification in trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy through The Medical University of South Carolina. As an intern, Lee worked for a Child Advocacy Center where he was able to use his training in trauma to work with abused and neglected children and their family’s. After graduation, Lee worked in a child and adolescent clinic doing couple and family therapy prior to moving home to Utah. Lee enjoys working with individuals, couples, and families through a systemic lens to help them develop coping and communication skills, process trauma, create congruence, make meaning, set healthy boundaries, heal attachment injuries, gain personal insight, and modify behaviors using a variety of family therapy techniques.
