Chimene Lee, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Santa Cruz
Welcome, and congratulations on taking the first step toward creating change. Seeking a therapist can feel like a big deal, so it's important to find one who is a good match. I am here to help you, by creating a warm and collaborative therapeutic environment that honors each client's unique intuitive wisdom. I offer a non-pathologizing and empowering understanding of human issues, assuming each person has the capacity to transform, both within themselves, and in their relationships with others.
I have helped many people who struggle with feelings of disconnection, depression, and anxiety, or who have trouble in their relationships. I've worked with children, adolescents, adults, families, and couples to assist them in gaining clarity and more happiness in their lives.
I specialize in bringing mindful presence to my clients by helping them release burdens of extreme beliefs, emotions and sensations, all of which get in the way of the inherent compassion, curiosity and creativity that lie within and create open-hearted healing.
