My goal in joining this field is to help those struggling with addiction and mental illness get the life they deserve. I have watched as those in my own family have struggled with addiction and untreated mental illness. I did not know or understand the importance of these things until I had to overcome my own addictions and address my own mental health. Through my journey I have learned the importance of acceptance, asking for help and humility. I am blessed to watch clients grow and become who they were destined to be.

Meet Our Mental Health Director. Dr. Paivi Lee has her PhD in Clinical Psychology, from Adler Graduate school (2008) specializing in Somatic Psychology and Trauma work. She received her Doctorate from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology in Los Angeles, California (2015). She is also trained in Relational Somatic Psychotherapy which covers all aspects of somatic psychology from underlying neurobiological research findings through intensive clinical applications. The focus of relational somatic psychotherapy emphasizes relational and deeper transpersonal perspectives and includes much personal and interpersonal work, as well as the learning and practice of many different therapeutic interventions.
Dr. Lee has a strong clinical acumen and capacity to understand and apply relational somatic principles in her clinical practice and personally. She is a professor at a graduate school where she teaches future psychotherapists the skills she herself uses every day in her work.
Her warm, nurturing demeanor makes her very approachable by students and peers alike.
She really “gets” that, to be a good somatic practitioner, one must do one’s own inner work. She has been pursuing this avidly and does not shy away from deep personal explorations. She knows a lot about the somatic and interpersonal realms and is truly dedicated to furthering the growth and acceptance of this discipline by the larger therapeutic community

Michael was compelled to attend the University of Minnesota’s Integrated Behavioral Health master's program in 2012 after his own experiences, and those of others, revealed to him that a single approach to health does not work for all. The program at the U of M considers both substance use disorder and all other mental health disorders to be important in the recovery and improved functioning for individuals within their families and communities. Completing this degree provided Michael with dual licensure as both a substance use and mental health professional (LADC and LPCC). Michael's professional experience corroborates what research has also shown — treating both substance use disorders while at the same time addressing mental health conditions leads to better outcomes. He has worked in the field since 2014 while being a friend and ally to many in the recovery community. He enjoys helping others, fixing things, working on cars, cooking, exercising, gardening, and nature. While educated in a primarily cognitive-behavioral approach, he also strongly believes in the power of community, having a sense of purpose, spirituality and meditation, a sense of belonging in a social group, and physical health. Clinical interest and experiences include but are not limited to: substance use disorders (all types), depressive disorders, anxiety disorders, trauma and related disorders, bipolar and related disorders, psychotic disorders, behavioral disorders, personality disorders, problematic sexual behaviors, grief, loss and bereavement issues, and codependency and relationship difficulties.
Addiction Health is providing in person group therapy. We are practicing social distancing and working to ensure that our clients are safe while still able to get the services they need.
