Dr. Lee will do a thorough evaluation of your chronic pain and fatigue to uncover the underlying root causes. In his practice, Dr. Lee emphasizes natural healing and spiritual modalities to promote physical and mental well being. The diagnoses and solutions Dr. Lee emphasizes will be primarily explained and treated from an energetic and spiritual perspective. He believes that the body already has a tendency to integrate and regenerate itself when given the right energy. Dr. Lee may use medications for immediate psychiatric stabilization, but create a long term plan of tapering off medications and optimizing natural healing therapies.
Pain is your body's normal reaction to an injury or illness, a signal that something is wrong. As your body heals, you usually stop hurting.
However, for many people, pain continues long after its cause is gone. When it lasts for 3 to 6 months or more, it’s called chronic pain. When you hurt day after day, it can take a toll on your emotional and physical health.
About 25% of people with chronic pain will go on to have a condition called chronic pain syndrome (CPS). That’s when people have symptoms beyond pain alone, like depression and anxiety, which interfere with their daily lives.
CPS can be hard to treat, but it's not impossible. A mix of treatments like counseling, physical therapy, and relaxation techniques can help relieve your pain and the other symptoms that come with it.

I work directly with patients in my Los Angeles based private practice.
Prior to our first visit, we can connect on the phone for a brief 5-10 minute conversation to ensure that we are a good fit to work together. You may also fill out an initial intake form and send it back to me so we can save time for our actual visit, and I can have an idea of your medical history prior to meeting
During our first visit, I will strive to be completely present with you. This means, I will not be typing and you will have my undivided attention and care.
We may utilize breath work to arrive in a relaxed and present state of being.
We will then proceed to engage in open and honest dialogue and everything we speak about will remain confidential.
We will explore your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health and examine areas of strength, and areas that we may want to bring into balance. We will discuss symptoms, without placing you into a box of a diagnosis. When we feel there is a mutual understanding of the desired outcome of treatment we will formulate a realistic, specific treatment plan geared towards eradicating symptoms by addressing the root cause. We will ensure that you have the adequate knowledge, tools, medication (if necessary), supplements, and support to make progress towards your goal of becoming the best version of yourself.
