Staff & Leadership

Courtney Lee, LMHCA | Program Manager 
she/her | Chinese & Filipino American | queer | cis

As program manager at Mend, I have the honor of walking alongside our team of therapists in training, providing support and a space to connect. We believe that healing happens in community, which means as we ask our clients to engage in the systems that impact their identities and their mental health in the therapeutic space, we also engage our team to do the same with each other. In this way, we are committed to learning our own stories of internalized privilege or oppression in the collective act of healing and liberation.

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate and hold a Master Degree in Counseling Psychology from The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology. I completed my internship at Mend in 2019.

Pemberley VanderLinden, MFT | Clinical Supervisor 
she/her | White | bisexual | disabled | cis

I identify as a cisgendered, white woman, bisexual, disabled, non-religious, raised working class in a military family. I believe that healing happens in the context of relationships. As a clinical supervisor, I am curious about a clinician's relationship to themselves and to the clients they walk with, while considering the layers of intersectionality that impact us all.

I am licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Washington State (LF60267695) and a State Approved Supervisor. I hold a Master's Degree in Counseling from Antioch University in Seattle and Bachelor's of Science in Applied Developmental Psych from Eastern Washington University. My professional experience is in community mental health and private practice. I love to work with couples of all types. The highlight reel of my additional post graduate education is in the clinical treatment of Internalized Oppression, Acceptance and Commitment Psychotherapy (ACT) and Relational Life Therapy (RLT).
