Clayton – Finally getting a day to rest.
Just wanted to take a minute to thank you for what you’ve done for me this year.
It’s been a life altering year for me.
Your education and guidance has helped my life. A lot.
You do great work. What you do is very, very special.
I hope you know that.
“You are serving at the highest level
by being a blessing to me and the hurting I felt.
In our sessions I feel a calm beauty of peace and positive energy.”
“Clayton, you changed my life entirely.
You really did. I was so enmeshed and confused
when I came to see you, as you know.
I well remember the many sessions and the many areas we covered.
You truly helped me see.
And you gave me the courage to move forward.
The life I have today is the result,
and what a great life I do have. And I have you to thank.
You have an amazing background and insights –
and the skills and heart to be of wonderful service to others.
How very blessed you are to have such gifts from God.
I will forever be in your debt.
And I am especially proud you count me as a friend.”
“The meditation I learned from you has made me calmer
than I have ever been in my life.
I never thought I could be this calm,
and be able to get to this peace of mind
without alcohol or drugs.”
“Clayton Lee is an outstanding counselor.
He goes way above and beyond to help his clients,
while adhering to the highest ethical standards.
He is the kind of person that you would mortgage your home to help
if he were in any trouble.
I would recommend him to anyone who needs
help making the most of their life in today’s troubling world.”
Clayton, I had heard you were very good;
but not how great you were with me in our session.
One of my best ever session with professional helpers.
I would be happy to do a ‘commercial on TV” for you;
but know you probably don’t want the notoriety.
I plan of getting back with you again soon.
“Drowning in a sea of dysfunction regarding a family business situation –
I first visited Clayton in 2016. Although I had long-time sobriety,
this situation was far beyond my understanding and seemingly like a proverbial Gordian knot.
Yet little by little, over time, Clayton very skillfully helped me
walk through the situation with a measure of kindness, insight, love and understanding,
bringing a heightened level of clarity – not just about the situation at hand –
but about myself and my role in all.
With all that you helped me see over time, I was able to have the courage to move forward
and make very far- reaching life decisions which brought me into the incredibly good life I have today.
I can say most unreservedly that Clayton Lee completely changed my life,
giving me abundant inspiration to not just heal myself,
but to be of service to all I love.
In summary – his impact was hardly confined to me.
It was immensely impactful to so many others.
I will always feel deeply grateful for Clayton
and treasure his friendship to this day.”
“The Meditation you taught me is a huge part of my life
and has changed my way of thinking, over-reacting,
and is a major everyday tool for me.
Thank you for PATIENTLY working with me on that skill.
I have surprised most of my family and friends with my new ways,
new outlook and really – I’m a new person.
Life is so beautiful and appreciated in more ways to count.”
“Innovative, caring, and energetic counselor.
Knows about addiction recovery,
and helping resolve relationship problems.
Clayton is a great hypnotherapist.
He has helped me get perspective and clarity.”
Male Client (30+ Year Therapist/Counselor)
“In my role as an HR consultant and Coach,
I have complete confidence in referring my clients to Clayton.
He is a skilled expert in situations
where there is a need for employee counseling for
emotional and substance abuse issues.
For the employer, he is a wealth of information,
experience and skill on how to manage a situation
when the “trauma and drama”
of disruptive or addicted employees are causing chaos.
You can feel comfort in utilizing the services of Clayton Lee”
Female Client (HR Consultant and Coach)
“You have been such a ‘gift’ to me and my family.
Some have a gift for helping others
see the world as a place of possibility…
Some impart wisdom or comfort and care…
Some point out the path, and some take you there…
Some warm the heart with their humanity.
You have all these gifts… Thank you so much.”
“This year has been made brighter and more meaningful
because you are a part of our lives.
As a token of my appreciation for you,
I have made a contribution in your name to ___________ (charity),
a remarkable non-profit organization.
Thank you Clayton Lee.”
Mother of Male Client
“I’ve been practicing the meditation you taught me,
and it has impacted me so much in a tremendous way. Thank you.”
“Clayton, you are a HUGE part of ‘what happened’
on my journey from alcoholism to recovery.
You helped me gain ‘awareness of self’,
which is where you started my healing.
This moved me to a place
where I could truly understand the 12 Steps.”
“I found Mr. Lee to be extremely competent.
He has a seemingly natural empathic and therapeutic manner
in dealing with patients.
His approach to patients and their family members is always gentle,
respectful and collaborative.
Mr. Lee’s style is to join with them, lead and motivate them
to move in the direction of recovery while recognizing,
accepting and working with their resistance and ambivalence.”
Senior Counselor and Mental Health Instructor
“Today’s family session with you was incredibly productive.
I had dinner with my parents afterward, and feel we are now all committed
toward improving our relationship overall, and have a better understanding
about the importance of clear communications.”
“Thank you for being such an understanding and outstanding counselor.
Because of our work together I’ve been able to open up and
share my thoughts and feelings like I never have before.
I thank God every day for blessing me with finding
and choosing you to work with on my issues.
I feel wonderful and ready to start my life again.”
“Learning and using the meditation you taught me
has been especially therapeutic for me in many ways.”
“Your genuine compassion allowed me to bring out feelings
I never knew I had. Our sessions together were moving
and helped me grow to where I am today,
which I didn’t believe was possible before we started.
“My life is so much better being sober than my old life as an alcoholic.
My relationships are so much better, and I can cope with life
in a positive manner. Your guidance has had a lasting impact on me
and my road to sobriety. As you told me, if I did the work,
I would change, for the better. And I have.”
“My husband was very moved in the family counseling session
we had with you. He told me afterward that he felt very highly of you,
and although it was sad my alcohol problems
had brought us to this point,
that it was all almost worth it for this one meeting today,
for the clarity and understanding he gained on my disease,
and ways to improve our communications.
This meeting demonstrated to me how much my husband loves me,
and is now willing to accept and follow
the suggestions you gave during the session.”
“Your thoughtfulness and compassion have so often touched my heart.
Today I’m thinking of you with gratitude and wishing you the
same kind of happiness you showed me that I could have,
even when I didn’t feel worthy of it.
Today I can feel happiness without the guilt and anger I had before.”
“I wanted to say thank you for motivating me
to start my recovery, and then to stay with it.
Knowing you believed in me from the beginning
made me feel comfortable, instead of guilty and ashamed
as I had been. My fiancee has enjoyed our family sessions,
and this has also helped my recovery.”
“Clayton Lee is a Godly man, and I’ve been blessed to know him.”
“My husband and I are both so grateful for the work you’ve done with him.
I don’t think he’d be where he is today had it not been for you.
I can hardly believe how much my life has changed for the better,
and how happy he is these days. I know we still have lots of work to do,
but thanks to you we are headed in the right direction.”
“When we were practicing the meditations in our sessions,
I’d sometimes feel so relaxed I felt like I was floating above the couch.”
“Thank you Clayton for making sure I have the tools available
to not just stay sober, but do so with a quality of life.
The exercises you gave me to promote strength
in my sobriety and life have really helped open my eyes.
I feel I have the core I need for continued sobriety
and a calmer, saner life.”
“Clayton Lee is the most caring counselor I’ve ever had.
He never made me feel bad, he only focuses on the good.”
“My layers of denial were so deep, but I couldn’t see them.
Your persistence planted a seed of hope
and today I’m living in recovery,
which is happy, joyous and free.”
“The meditation you taught me is very helpful
for removing negative emotions.”
