About Dr. Lee
Dr. Crystal Lee is a licensed psychologist in Los Angeles, California (PSY 26527). Her life’s passion is to help others grow through life, achieve their goals, and become the best version of themselves. For nearly 15 years, Dr. Lee has worked with individuals across the lifespan— she has helped children flourish, adolescents find their way, young adults launch, and adults thrive.
Dr. Lee’s success with such diverse clients stems directly from her ability to deeply understand her clients’ perspectives and needs. From there, she precisely personalizes evidence-based approaches to their specific situations; Dr. Lee recognizes that each client’s unique situation calls for a different therapeutic approach. No matter the client’s goals, Dr. Lee always joins them in a compassionate, non-judgmental partnership to help her clients achieve their goals and move forward in their lives. Sessions are a blend of exploration, reflection, problem-solving, and action.
Dr. Lee’s Professional Journey
Dr. Lee earned her Bachelor’s degrees in Psychology, Sociology, and Education at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). After working at UCLA’s acclaimed Lynda and Stewart Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital for numerous years, she obtained her doctorate in clinical psychology from Baylor University, widely considered one of the best Psy.D. programs in the United States.
After graduating, Dr. Lee directed and developed programs for adolescents and emerging adults struggling with “failure to launch”, many of whom had neurodevelopmental disorders (e.g., Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, Learning Disorder). While serving as a Residential Director, Dr. Lee gained a deep appreciation for parents’ struggles, as she supported teens and emerging adults’ journeys towards independence while they lived in her care. Though Dr. Lee was a successful administrator, she desired to work directly with individuals to help them grow and thrive and left to open LA Concierge Psychologist.
A respected leader in the mental health community, Dr. Lee is currently a board member of the Los Angeles County Psychological Association (LACPA). She has presented at several professional conferences as well as has written and been quoted on various topics, such as helping emerging adults successfully transition to adulthood, working with adolescents and young adults on the Autism Spectrum, and finding work-life balance as a busy professional. Most recently, she co-authored a chapter on helping young adults with language-based learning disabilities successfully transition to college.
As a passion project, Dr. Lee developed a psychological services department that provides affordable high-quality assessment and therapy services. Through that project, she supervises post-doctoral psychology fellows. Dr. Lee also mentors several undergraduate students through UCLA’s alumni mentorship program.
