Dr. Christine Lee earned her PhD in clinical psychology from the University of Kentucky, specializing in children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and their peer problems. Her residency in pediatric psychology was completed at Geisinger and her fellowship in consultation-liaison work was completed at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. Additionally, she has experience working in higher levels of care, such as crisis services, the Emergency Department, and Intensive Outpatient Programs. Her current interests focus on collaborating with children, adolescents, families, and young adults with ADHD and comorbid disorders, particularly in racial/ethnic minority populations. She uses a behavioral parent training approach for treatment as well as cognitive behavior therapy and dialectical behavior therapy influences.
