What's expected from an initial visit?

During the initial visit, I want to meet the family (at least one parent) first. It’s very important for me to get a full picture of what’s going on.

The intake and assessment process typically takes 2-3 sessions so I can come up with the best possible treatment plan.

What is the fee for each session?

Each session lasts for 45 minutes, and the fee is $220 per session.

Do you offer video sessions?

Yes! We offer a secure video session, and you will use a unique link to get into the session.

You will need a smartphone, tablet, or a computer with a camera for the telehealth sessions.

How long does it take to get better?

It depends! My treatment approach is typically a 3-step process.

Step 1: Relief - this phase of treatment is all about the symptom management and improvement in daily functioning. I see my patients once a week for 10-15 sessions. I also meet with parents/caregivers periodically during the time. Some patients get better relatively quickly while others benefit from a longer treatment. 

Step 2: Root causes - this phase of treatment is about further investigating potential root cause(s) of their condition. During this phase, I meet with them for an additional 20+ sessions (typically every other week). 

Step 3: Relapse Prevention - this phase of treatment is about the maintenance and check in. I meet with patients every 4-6 weeks for 2-3 times and make sure they are on the path to ongoing recovery and improvement.

Overall, each treatment is individually tailored, ranging between 3 months to a year.

What can I expect in a session with Dr. Lee?

I am committed to provide compassion and do my best to understand your situation. I also like to include humor and fun when appropriate.

Your well-being is my priority. I expect you to show up to each treatment session with open-minded and ready to get better. That being said, I always ask you about your comfort level so I can follow your lead. 

I also believe in finding your inner voice and love helping you advocate for yourself and communicate your needs with others effectively.

Do you take an insurance?

I worked in hospital settings for many years and was in-network with insurance companies. Because of my specialty working with medically challenged patients, many insurance companies didn't pay for my service. This limited what I could do to help my patients in the best way possible.

Because of the unpredictability of insurance coverage, I've chosen to charge out of pocket.

My goal is to provide the quality service that meets individual needs.
