My focus as a psychotherapist is to help each individual achieve their full potential. Whether there is a current challenge or a broader goal to create change, the biggest indicator of success in therapy is the rapport one has with their therapist. I provide a safe environment in my office, one of support, honesty, trust and free of judgment. This is essential to the therapeutic process and in the client's ability to feel safe and understood. I assist and help guide my clients in life transformations, to gain insight and to live a better, more meaningful life.

Staying or being connected to others---Isn't that what we all desire? To have meaningful and healthy relationships with our spouses, children, friends and co-workers. It is our relationships that determine our fulfillment in life. Do you experience depression, anxiety or stress that complicate how you relate with others? Do you find it difficult to get others to take you seriously or listen to what you have to say? Come and explore these issues and more in a professional and caring environment.

Life is full of challenges. Most of the time, we are able to handle these challenges. But, occasionally, life provides a challenge that goes beyond our problem solving skills, and we need to talk with someone who can help provide new options to these situations. Dr. Yee listens and suggests different ways to handle the most demanding of challenges. Dr. Yee works with both adults, dealing with issues related to depression, anxiety, and relationships, and adolescents, dealing with issues related to their emotional and social development.
If you are struggling with low self-esteem, confusion, anxiety, or depression, I will be a compassionate guide. If you have self-defeating beliefs and patterns, together we can create a new mindset. If your relationships are disappointing, I will help you confront the roadblocks. If your marriage is stagnant, I can assist you to intentionally create the "WOW in your VOW". If you are reeling from betrayal, broken relationships, family conflict, parenting or step-parenting issues, I can assist you in developing a strategy that will work for you. If you are grieving, I will walk beside you.
When you are suffering, personally, within your family or in a relationship, I offer therapy that goes beyond just talking about the past. I use an educational and directive Mind/Body/Spirit approach that assesses your current life situation, formulates new goals and gives you tools to use every day. I make therapy comfortable, positive and aim to get results as quickly as possible. I see myself as an active facilitator in a joint process, not an expert-patient relationship. I believe that everyone intrinsically knows what they need, it's my job to assist you on that journey.
I offer a FREE confidential phone consultation. Do you feel depressed, anxious, stuck, powerless, lonely, angry, overwhelmed, or find youself in difficult relationships? You don't have to feel this way, there is hope! I would be privileged to help you find your way. In the course of living, we accumulate experiences, traumas, resentments, illnesses and HABITS that weigh us down. We may carry this pain with us every day until we learn new healthy ways of coping and begin to face our true selves and work through our hurts, vices, hidden secrets, and brokenness.

Hello, I am a fully licensed and Board Certified psychotherapist. My clients have described me as genuine, thoughtful, warm, compassionate, and easy to talk with.

Are you concerned about your teenager's excessive stress, argumentative behavior at home, or declining grades? Adolescence is a stressful period as the developmental changes that occur during this time affect almost every area of a teenager's functioning (e.g. relationships with others, risk-taking behavior, sense of identity). However, these changes often lead to great distress on the teenager and their families. Psychotherapy can be a great tool for your child to work through his or her conflicts as they make the difficult transition into adulthood.
I understand - and appreciate - how difficult the process of choosing a therapist can be. When trying to make this decision there is something in life that is painful. We hurt, feel vulnerable, and finding the right "fit" is essential. I believe that therapy is a powerful opportunity to exam what is, or is not, working in our lives and that everyone has the capacity to meet the challenges and struggles life will inevitably bring. If you are seeking a compassionate listener who will non-judgmentally assist you in making sense of life, I am the therapist you are looking for.
I provide several types of psychological, employment-related, psychoeducational, forensic, and neuropsychological evaluations. State-of-the-art methods including TOVA and interactive iPad-based tests for efficient and accurate services. I am insurance-contracted and work with wide-ranging populations and testing purposes. If you are recommended, requested, or ordered to undergo assessment, please reach out. You will receive a high-quality, scientifically informed evaluation, with a comprehensive report, feedback, and recommendations. I am a practicing clinical and professorial member of the International Neuropsychological Society.
Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being. As a solution-focused therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. Together, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
