Hello there! My name is Vivian Lee, and I’m currently pursuing my M.A. in Counseling (Clinical Mental Health concentration) at Texas State University. In a past life, 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 with the Stice Lab, the Institute for Mental Health Research, and the Aitheros Research Association. I am passionate about two main areas of research: eating disorders (particularly amongst athletes and performing artists) and college mental health. 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!
