Kristen Lee, Ed.D., LICSW is a recovering perfectionist, proud Mama, and an internationally recognized, award-winning author, clinician, researcher, educator, speaker, and activist with over 20 years of experience. As Lead Faculty for Behavioral Science at Northeastern University in Boston, her research and teaching interests include individual and organizational well-being and resilience, particularly for marginalized and underserved populations. She is the author of Reset: Make the Most of Your Stress, Winner of the Next Generation Indie Book Awards Motivational Book of 2015, and Mentalligence: A New Psychology of Thinking. She speaks nationally and internationally to a diverse range of audiences including educators, health and mental health professionals, business leaders, and general audiences.

My years as a clinician and educator have taught me that keeping our eyes open to the many sides of anxiety is vital for our growth and development. We can find ways to befriend our anxiety and use it as a catalyst for change, instead of staying in the shadows and marinating in toxic, frenetic and dark emotions.

My TedX talk reveals my own lifelong, messy rumble with anxiety and how it’s translated into deeper insights, connection and meaning in my life. If you want the full backstory, pick up a copy of Mentalligence or take my free Mentalligence quiz.
