About Me:

Dr. Lee is a licensed psychologist in California, with more than 20 years of clinical experience, in a variety of settings, including the Student Counseling center at UC San Diego, prior to joining the staff at UC Davis. She recently relocated to the Davis/Sacramento area. Most of her experience has been in San Diego, CA specializing in multicultural populations, at community mental health agencies, non-profit organizations and private practice. Dr. Lee has taught multicultural counseling at CSPP in San Diego for several years as an adjunct professor. She has a special interest in working with immigrants and refugees and provides psychological evaluations and expert testimony for immigration court. Having worked closely with attorneys on these cases and understanding their challenges and needs for good self-care, made the position of psychologist at the School of Law Satellite particularly appealing to her.
