Hello! My name is Vivian Lee...

I’m currently pursuing 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 also 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 work as the billing manager for Deep Eddy Psychotherapy (a private psychotherapy practice serving the Greater Austin area) and a Behavioral Health Counselor for Eating Recovery Center. I also conduct research at the Institute for Mental Health Research, the Aitheros Research Association, and through my own avenues as part of my thesis. I am passionate about two main areas of research: eating disorders and college mental health (especially for nontraditional students). I also run an ANAD-affiliated eating disorders support group.

In my spare time, I enjoy attending dance classes, Pilates, gaming, and playing with my two feline furballs, Mynerva and Freya. Fun fact: I have an asteroid (24318 Vivianlee) named after me!
