Hello! My name is Vivian Lee...

I earned my M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Texas State University. In my previous career(s), I worked in management consulting, public relations, and business administration. I hold a B.S. in Economics & Management Science from MIT. Inspired by my own lived experiences with mental health and the academic environments in which I grew up, I am now in the midst of a career change to become a therapist.

Presently, I am a Behavioral Health Counselor at Eating Recovery Center and a Residential Care Staff Austin Recovery. I also conduct research with several universities and via my own independent projects. I am passionate about two main areas of research: eating disorders and college mental health (especially for nontraditional students).

In my spare time, I practice ballet, play the recorder (don’t hate it ‘til you’ve heard it!), work on my quest to a taekwondo black belt, and hang out with my two feline furballs, Mynerva and Freya. Fun fact: I have an asteroid (24318 Vivianlee) named after me!
