About

Hey there, most of my patients just call me "Doc" to keep it simple. My specialty areas include anxiety, relationship issues for couples, PTSD, & gastric bypass evaluations. Listen, life does not have to hurt ALL the time, & it is way too short to STAY unhappy & overwhelmed. You have the power to take back control of your life, job, family, & future. Rome, as great a city as it was in its prime, was not built in a day; it took time & a "plan". Together, we can develop a "plan" to get to the greatness inside you. Success is achievable; you just need the right coach. Call or email today & let me help you.
Are you ready to live your BEST life? What does that look like for you? I have been through "hell and back", as they say. All that means is that I made it through some of the darkest, most challenging times in my life. So, I can assure you, as long as you are breathing, there is hope for you, too. Call or email me today & let's get you to better days.
Throughout my life, I have walked through so many areas: addiction, anxiety, depression, esteem issues, grief and loss, gender identity, infidelity in relationships, self-doubt and self-sabotage. It was not easy, but I did the work...one day at a time. So can you. Call or email me today so you can get the support you need to walk through this space.

Dr. D Lee McGahey's Groups

Bariatric Evaluations & Surgery Support Groups

Thinking about having bariatric surgery? Need support before & after your surgery? I can help walk you through the process every step of the way. The surgery is not a solution, but a tool. Getting to where you want to be is doable if you put in the work. What works & what doesn't work? People DO change in life, so YOU CAN learn to let go... of old habits & relationships with food, people and stress. Learn your TRIGGERS & how to best manage them. Wanna know how I know all this? I have been there. For I am one of you!
