Michael Chee, MSW
Mike was born and raised in Northern California and has called Brooklyn, NY, home for more than fifteen years. He is currently pursuing his graduate education in social work at New York University. Mike received his undergraduate degrees in History and Political Science from UCLA, including a semester abroad in Bali, Indonesia. He spent much of his career in the creative fields as a copywriter in advertising and branding while also volunteering through New York Cares.
More recently, Mike worked and trained at a public high school in Brooklyn. In his role, he worked with adolescent individuals and groups, and taught social-emotional learning classes to ninth and tenth grade students. The experience was enriching as it was rewarding, and often involved helping clients work through depression, anxiety, self-harm, and family/societal pressures.
Mike has been fortunate to work with a diverse client population, and as someone who identifies as biracial, he is interested in exploring topics of identity and the impact of societal perceptions. He looks forward to working with adults in the everchanging environment of New York City.
Mike is all about self-care which can mean gym time, carnitas tacos, and lots of British television. He is an avid podcast listener, loves a good hike in or out of the city, and attempting to cook.
