Dr. Chee is a native of Queens, New York, but has been in Texas for over 20 years. He earned his Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) at Alliant International University where his research focused on the school-to-prison comparisons between urban and rural youths (especially in rural Appalachia). He completed his predoctoral internship in Kentucky's Appalachian region, where he was the chief psychological provider at The Kentucky Department of Corrections, Southeast State Correctional Complex. There, he treated inmates for a variety of conditions ranging from depression and anxiety to pervasive personality disorders. He gained ample experience working with the prison's transgender population and continues to work with the trans community (as well as the LGBTQIA+ community) in his local private practice. Dr. Chee remains on the clinical staff of the Kentucky Department of Corrections.
In addition to his doctoral degree, Dr. Chee also holds a Master of Arts (M.A.) in Psychology from Medaille College in New York, and a Bachelor's Degree in Health and Human Services from the University of North Texas, where he graduated magna cum laude (high honors). He also studied Substance Abuse Counseling at Eastfield College (a licensure-based program). He graduated with both an Associate of Applied Sciences (A.A.S.) in Substance Abuse Counseling and a certificate in Mental Health & Substance Abuse Prevention -- both with high honors. He is most passionate about counseling psychology, community outreach, and clinical psychology within the framework of the public school system (especially as it relates to at-risk youth).
Dr. Chee works with adult patients on occasion but dedicates a large portion of his supervised practice to working with adolescents and young adults. Though his primary practice is Counseling Psychology, he does occasionally offer psychological testing and consults on the evaluation of other patients within the clinical team setting.
As for forensic practice, Dr. Chee is a Texas-court-appointed mediator, having completed training pursuant to Chapter 154.052 (a) Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code and the standards of the Texas Mediation Trainers Roundtable. He is also a contracted visitation supervisor with the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS), as well as a court-appointed visitation supervisor.
