Ping-Tzu Lee, PhD, MSW, LCSW

Staff Social Worker

I am a clinical social worker and completed my MSW and PhD at the  School of Social Work at Colorado State University. I completed my clinical training at Colorado State University Health Network Counseling Services. Prior to arriving in the US, I was a mental health provider in Taiwan. I am interested in helping clients work on variety of issues, including traumas, sexual orientation and cultural identities, depression, and anxiety. Because of my cultural backgrounds and identities, I am committed to providing treatment for individuals with marginalized identities. 

In the therapy room, I am particularly interested in self-relations psychotherapy and interpersonal process therapy. I believe the relationship between a person and their own self is crucial to mental health, and the relationship between a client and a therapist is essential to change. I enjoy having deep conversations with college students and seeing their desire to figure out relationships between themselves and others. I help students reconnect to their mind and body, and believes this mindful practice is the basic foundation for mental health.

Outside of the traditional therapy room, I enjoy conducting research in the area of equine-assisted psychotherapy and learning this emerging approach.
