Meet Lee Hausner, PhD

I'm Dr. Lee Hausner. I am a clinical psychologist and a family business consultant. I spent many years as a psychologist for the Beverly Hills school system where I had a wonderful opportunity to develop parenting programs and observe the effects of children that are being raised in some unique environments – successful parents, issues of wealth, lack of wealth even in Beverly Hills, the issues of celebrity. I left and have been doing a lot of work with large multi-generation families on issues of transfer, of businesses, of transfer of wealth, and of the kinds of skills that help family stay connected, dealing with conflict resolution or communication within families. On a personal basis, I am mother. I consider that probably my finest accomplishment. My two children have given me five delightful grandchildren. I'm very fortunate that they live in the same city where I do so that I can really be an involved grandmother. When I am not working or grandparenting, you can find me either on the golf course or the bridge table
