CHRIS LEE, PMHNP-BC
CEO/FOUNDER, PSYCHIATRIC NURSE PRACTITIONER
Chris Lee is a Board-Certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner and the founder of DreamCloud Psychiatry. He completed his graduate education and training in psychiatry at New York University, and holds undergraduate degrees from the University of Southern California and Miami Dade College. He is licensed to practice psychiatry in Florida and New York.
He has worked at some of the nation's top psychiatric facilities including Bellevue Hospital's Psychiatric Emergency Department in New York City, Mt. Sinai-St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital in UWS, Housing Works' East New York Community Health Center, Transformations Treatment Center in Delray Beach, Summit Detox in Boynton Beach, Delphi Behavioral Group in Fort Lauderdale, and Ally Psychological in Miami Beach.
In 2016, Chris Lee started Elevate Psychiatry in Miami, which quickly become the top-ranked psychiatric provider in downtown Miami. As co-founder, he sought to bring life to a field which he saw as being dry and outdated. Using aromatherapy, music, and sound conditioning, he created a modern-day feel to motivate his patients.
Then in 2018, he started DreamCloud Psychiatry to challenge stigma and fear with a relatable experience designed for the millennial generation of patients. “Mental health can be very intimidating. I want to connect mental health to common real-life situations which may impact a person's life, including fundamental behaviors like how they eat and how they sleep,” he says. “I want people to know that mental health is more than just medicine, it’s a lifestyle.”
At DreamCloud Psychiatry, he integrates psychiatric treatment with nutrition, exercise, and other holistic elements to help patients live rich and healthy lives. He encourages his patients to become independent of the things that hold them back by becoming creators, entrepreneurs, and dreamers.
He hopes DreamCloud Psychiatry will inspire his patients one day as much as they have inspired him.
This is Mint.
Imagination is key to a life richly-lived.
