Audra Lee, MS, MA, NCC
Professional Counselor Intern
I believe the strength of your mental & emotional digestion is key to balancing stress & enhancing well-being. In psychotherapy, we will work together to access the healing power of your inner wisdom to strengthen your mental & emotional digestion and process current and/or past stressors & traumas.

My theoretical orientation is a trauma-informed, integrative approach to counseling and psychotherapy that bridges both Eastern and Western approaches to mental health & well-being. I primarily integrate the theories of psychodynamic psychotherapy and Ayurvedic Psychology, as well as a thorough understanding of complex trauma and the effects of past or present interpersonal trauma, to assess and treat underlying mental and emotional imbalances that interfere with the process of digesting and integrating life experiences. I encourage a collaborative approach to increasing self- awareness, understanding and acceptance through non-judgmental exploration of all aspects of life.
I am a Registered LPC intern and a nationally certified counselor (NCC). I have two Master’s degrees, one in biology and one in Professional Mental Health Counseling. I am also a Registered Ayurvedic Psychology Consultant (RAPC) with the Association of Ayurvedic Professionals of North America (AAPNA). I am committed to a life-long process of learning, and strive to work from a place of cultural humility to increase my awareness, knowledge and skills both personally and professionally. I completed a 2.5 year counseling internship at the National College of Natural Medicine (now NUNM). My areas of specialization include individual psychodynamic psychotherapy, stress/trauma and complex trauma, Ayurvedic Psychology, and personal growth/well-being. I also have a special interest in the mental and emotional aspects of functional somatic symptoms, specifically with gastrointestinal disorders such as IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth).
