Speaker: Jin Lee PsyD, MSCP, BCB

Dr. Jin Lee is a licensed psychologist in the state of Colorado and New Mexico. She specializes in treating children and adolescents who suffer from chronic pain and functional neurological disorder (FND) through her private practice at Your Pediatric Psychologist, where she uses evidence-based treatment. Given a high prevalence of adolescent chronic pain and FND, especially since the pandemic, Dr. Lee founded an innovative program, Teen Chronic Pain Academy, to help adolescents and their parents resolve chronic pain and FND. Dr. Lee earned a PsyD degree in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University in 2015. She also graduated from Fairleigh Dickinson University with a masters degree in Clinical Psychopharmacology and is in the process of becoming a prescribing psychologist. Dr. Lee is chair of the Colorado prescriptive authority task force and has been a central figure in championing the successful passage of the CO RxP legislative effort into law, making Colorado the sixth RxP state in the United States.
