Jungeun Lee, Ph.D. is a licensed clinical psychologist practicing in South Korea. She was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea and has lived in several cities throughout Canada and the United States for her higher education in her twenties.


For the past 10 years, she has worked with clients who have emotion regulation difficulties coming from anxiety, depression, stress, relationship difficulties, substance abuse and personality disorders. She is also an external instructor at Kwangwoon University and Chung-ang University Graduate School where she teaches basic and advanced psychology classes and gender studies.

Therapy Approach

My primary therapy approach is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). I assume that a lot of psychological suffering comes from one’s difficulty managing negative emotions. The focus of my session is to understand causes of suffering, functions of different emotions, and learn skills to regulate unbearable emotions followed by applying skills to clients’ environments. Life can be very harsh and cruel, from time to time—full of waves. At the same time, you can learn how to surf them effectively and move with the flow. I would love to guide you along on that path.

Fun Facts

I love reading and taking a walk. Traveling different parts of the world with my husband has been such a joy and adventure in my life! I also have an ambivalent (love and hate) relationship with exercising.
