Presenter: Rachel Lee, MS, LMFT

Rachel Lee currently practices as a child and adolescent family therapist at Rogers Behavioral Health Partial Hospitalization (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient (IOP) programs. As a Taiwanese immigrant, she uses a culturally sensitive approach to provide evidence-based CBT/DBT interventions to families in crisis. Her role is largely empowering parents to lift accommodations and practice effective modeling to refrain from perpetuating unhealthy relational patterns which further constrain their child’s age-appropriate functioning. As a systemic clinician, she works with a collaborative team of psychiatrists, behavioral specialists, dieticians, nurses, and education specialists to serve families and children spanning ages 6 through 18. Her current work focuses on self-harm, suicide ideation, obsessive compulsive disorder, anxiety, depression, and family conflict.

Prior to Rogers Behavioral Health, Rachel received her training at The Family Institute at Northwestern University and dabbled in outpatient private practice.

This event is offered in coordination with Rogers Behavioral Health.
