Yet some tributes are more unique, including when one of Lee’s patients, a military veteran, arranged to have a U.S. flag flown in her honor aboard a U.S. Air Force plane this past September 11.
“It was really unexpected,” says Lee. “As therapists, we don’t always know the difference we make in the lives of others, so this was an incredible honor.”
The flag was later delivered to Lee, along with a certificate noting that it was “flown in honor of Katherine Lee and her dedication to all the lives of people she touches every day.”
Due to safety precautions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, Lee’s patient participated in an outpatient program delivered virtually through telehealth.
“While the transition to online therapy was a sudden, significant change, we’ve been able to maintain a human connection in a virtual space,” adds Lee. “This is a perfect example of what it’s all about. It’s wonderful to see patients grow and flourish.”
