Sam Lee, LPC
Director of Facilitator Development, Lead Instructor
Sam Lee graduated from The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology with a Masters in Divinity in 2007 and a Masters of Arts in Counseling Psychology in 2013. Sam served in pastoral ministries for over 10 years before stepping into the counseling field. In his work with The Allender Center, Sam facilitates groups for the Training Certificate and Story Workshop. Sam currently resides in Austin, TX and engages story work through his private practice, Sam Lee Counseling. The combination of divinity and psychology allows Sam to offer a unique and integrative perspective stemming from both domains. As a second generation Chinese-American, Sam also navigates a third domain: the in-between space of
conflicting identity differentiators—between social, cultural, gender, historic dimensions. Sam has found traversing the “in-between” space to be where the therapeutic work happens.
