Dr. Lee joined the Seton Hall faculty in Fall, 2015. She has experience supervising and training master’s students in mental health counseling, doctoral students in counseling psychology, medical students, and psychiatry residents. Dr. Lee has experience in various therapy modalities, including group therapy, couples therapy, and trauma-focused therapy. Her primary theoretical orientation is relationally-oriented psychodynamic therapy; however, she also integrates emotion-focused, gestalt, and systems theory into her clinical work, while incorporating a social justice lens.
Dr. Lee has conducted research in multicultural training, self-awareness training, training of medical students, and the influence of imperialism on bicultural identity negotiation. Her main research interests are in bicultural identity, racism, social justice, and therapy process-outcome. She utilizes various methodologies but is particularly interested in qualitative and critical methods. Her research projects will include examining the experiences of bicultural therapists and bicultural therapy clients, conducting therapy process research with bicultural clients, examining the relations among critical consciousness, perceived racism, bicultural identity integration, and health outcomes.
In clinical supervision, Dr. Lee’s supervisory style is to be process- and relationally-oriented, while attending to the developmental needs of her supervisees. Her research mentoring style is to support students in developing their research ideas, collaboratively working with her advisees in establishing goals and helping them to achieve the competencies necessary to become independent researchers.
