I want to give a shout out to Mari Lee for her wonderful contributions to our therapist community. She has developed materials and resources here that have made a big difference for me in my private practice. Her “Therapist’s Toolbox Store” on this website has some truly amazing packets, e-books, and workshop kits. Thanks so much Mari! I sure appreciate you being willing to develop your materials and share this with all of us!
— Angie Cella, LMFT, CSAT-c, EMDR, Bountiful, Utah
I seriously cannot stress how amazing Mari’s forms and resources are, and how affordable they are given the amount of time and effort that must have gone into creating this material as a support for therapists. Thank you Mari! Your complete clinical forms packet has now saved me from “millions” of hours researching crap! I also love how all of the forms have been formatted so that I can easily edit with my own logo and practice information.
— Dr. Gisette Uthoff, Advanced Mindset Psychological Services, Glendora, CA.
I am eternally grateful to Mari for her materials. It was in the context of consultation about disclosure that she introduced me to the templates, worksheets and materials that comprise the packet Mari offers for purchase. I have facilitated a number of formal disclosures using these materials. It is because of Mari’s guidance - and her emphasis on solid preparation that the disclosures go well each time.
— Claire Caines, LCSW LCADC CSAT, www.cainescenter.com
I am excited about all of these fabulous products being released for therapists. Everything Mari A. Lee, LMFT, CSAT-S does is impeccable and top-notch! If you want to have a successful private practice, these materials give you practical ways to improve your clinical work, whether you are in grad school, or have been licensed for decades. Through her products, Mari shares a window into the excellent clinical work that she provides individually and in a group setting. I have experienced her exercises first-hand with a group of therapists during a clinical workshop training, and the exercises were so moving and insightful, it brought half the room to tears.

I was so happy to purchase the “Fairy Tales to FaceLifts: Loving Yourself from the Inside Out” Women’s workshop kit! And, we are also using several exercises from the “Creative Clinician: Exercises and Activities for Clients and Group Therapy” , we especially love “A Strong Woman vs. A Woman of Strength”, and “The Story of Me” which has been especially powerful for our clients. The deeper we get into your work, the more we realize the material is invaluable to our practice. Thank you, Mari, for your extraordinary work that you are willing to share. Please know that your exercises and materials are making a difference in the lives of women and men (and their spouses) here in Cincinnati!

Mari, you rock! Though I went thru the CSAT training in 2004 and had put together my own personal FD packet years ago, I love how thorough yours is! Worth every penny!

I have found Mari’s forms for disclosure to be invaluable; she has created a wonderful template to help navigate the complex and unique nature of disclosure within the mental health field. I deeply appreciate her effortless transfer of knowledge and her wisdom. She is an invaluable resource.

Mari, I am following your blogs and your work-thank you for your standard of excellence. I will open my private practice in the next few weeks and creating forms has been very time consuming, so your forms will be such a big support - you have no idea how thrilled I am to just drop in my logo!!!
— Jeanne Thomas, MA, LPCi Bluffton, SC
I just purchased the Employment Policy Manual and I am thrilled! It has absolutely everything a therapist needs to use with employees - and it also incredibly thorough, organized into sections, and very affordable! I really appreciate that the therapist can customize it with his or her own logo and practice information too. I highly recommend this manual for anyone in private practice who has employees or is considering adding employees to your practice or agency. Thank you so much Mari!

Mari, I purchased your Formal Disclosure forms and worksheet packet for the SA and partner clinical package and I am in awe of your generosity! Thank you so much for sharing your intellectual property with the CSAT community.
— MJ Mueller LMFT, CSAT, Louisville, KY.
A few of Mari Lee’s hallmarks are thoroughness and attention to detail. In her many years as a therapist, Mari has created and documented a best practice approach to her clinical work. Mari thoughtfully sends the documents in a word file with room for the therapist to brand with his or her own practice information and logo. Her materials have been a wonderful support to my practice.
— Bryan Palmer, LCSW, CSAT, Miami Beach, FL.
Mari, I purchased the Employee Policy and HIPAA Manual and it is so fantastic - I am truly excited! What a wonderful tool you have created to support therapists!

You have reduced the stress and supported my business to truly thrive...and you have relieved my mind in untold ways, thank you!
— Leslie Baker, LMFT, Pleasanton, CA, www.lesliebakermft.com
The Fairytales to Facelifts Kit is a well-organized resource with everything we needed at our practice to facilitate a successful workshop. The exercises, images and stories provided are evocative and help participants to connect with their emotional selves and envision new ways of being in their lives and relationships. As a therapist, I am so grateful for all the hard work and generosity of spirit that went in to creating this great workshop experience.
— Michelle Mays, Founding Director, LPC, CSAT, Center for Relational Recovery, Leesburg, Virginia
Mari, I have purchased your “forms packet” as well as the “group forms packet” and I find both packets to be very helpful to my practice. This material will be especially supportive as I am starting my first men’s therapy group this August - so thank you!
— Eric Belsterling, LPC, LCAS, Asheville, NC
Mari, I am so excited that the Employment Policy Manual is finally completed! And I am thrilled to purchase it. I so appreciate your time spent compiling such a necessary tool for those of us too overwhelmed to know where to start. You truly are a jewel and inspiration, and a support to therapists, thank you!
— Tracy Tacquard, LMFT, Temecula, CA
Mari, I have so much respect for you and use your workbook (Facing Heartbreak) and exercises from your other book, “The Creative Clinician: Exercises and Activities for Clients and Group Therapy”, in my partner’s group. They are great!!! I love your spirit, creativity and passion - it comes across in all that you do. Looking forward to meeting you in person in the future!
— Karen Gelstein LCSW, CSAT, New York, NY
Mari, your Formal Disclosure package is very helpful. During our clinical meeting today, we discussed some issues around disclosures and our supervisor suggested getting copies of your materials. I shared with the group about the value of your Formal Disclosure materials and encouraged them to get copies of their own. Thanks for your kind heart. You are the best!
— Dr. Prince Oteng-Boateng, Ph.D., CSAT, Alberta, Canada
I was just telling a colleague how valuable your Formal Disclosure Documents are to my practice. It makes the difficult task of Disclosure, the Impact Letter and Emotional Restitution much easier.

I have found “The Creative Clinician” provides excellent exercises for helping stuck clients move forward. I liken Mari’s book to a beautiful diamond at the bottom of the river. For therapists who are fortunate to find this treasure and employ the exercises, the clinical rewards are truly gratifying. Mari’s book provides a focused, easy to follow, and supportive approach with these activities. Her ability to break down complex issues for clients in these exercises is outstanding. I highly recommend this book as a must have for any therapist looking to expand their repertoire of effective therapy tools. Very pleased!
— John W. Johnson, PhD., Pasadena, CA
Mari, I purchased “The Creative Clinician” and am finding it to be such a valuable tool to use with my clients. The explanations are easy to understand and the examples are relevant to real life issues. This is a great go to tool for any therapist wanting to help clients gain a deeper understanding of themselves.
