I had the privilege of being interviewed by a Washington D. C. Publication ThinkProgress, on therapists ability to treat clients with race-based trauma. Here is a short preview of the article below. Check it out!

“People of color don’t feel safe to come to therapy largely because they don’t feel they can find peop...le who can relate to their experience,” Lee told ThinkProgress.

She said she would often urge those suffering from trauma to seek therapy, “but what I didn’t account for was a lot of clinicians would not be helpful … So it became more of a conversation of advocacy — advocating for yourself in the mental health field.”
