Dealing with the daily struggles of life doesn't have to be faced alone. Focusing on self-growth and resiliency leads to tangible changes in our lives and fosters a mind-body connection.

I'm here to guide that change while helping us focus on measurable results to improve your life. Please scroll to the bottom of the page and enter your contact information to have a conversation.
Does it seem like on the outside you have it together, but deep down you are struggling? Does it feel like everything is on you and you're exhausted? Is it difficult for you to ask for help which leads you to feeling worried, stressed and overwhelmed. It makes sense that you feel this way maybe you've had experiences in the past that have convinced you that you have to do it all on your own. For this, you don't have to do it on your own. Let's see how we can work together.
Do you feel tense all the time and get stuck in the past? Do you have endless worries and feel overwhelmed by grief and loss? Are the painful memories and terrible thoughts weighing you down? Do you feel depressed and anxious much of the time? Do you feel unworthy and feel gripped by shame? I can help because I'm not afraid of your painful past and can show you the way forward. Counseling with me is a judgement-free zone. You are worth the work and deserve to feel better today!
As a counselor, life coach, and business/executive coach, I see clients that are either struggling in one or two areas or are ready for overall change. I have significant experience working with people through depression, anxiety, relationship issues, self image, grief, and body image among others. Most of my clients feel stuck and are unsure of how to move forward and gain momentum towards their healing and goals. I act in partnership with you to create the lasting change you desire.
Being human is often tough. Sometimes we lose our way and can feel stuck and overwhelmed. Sometimes we would like to change parts of our lives or ourselves but don’t know how. Therapy can be an empowering way to promote healing, growth, and wellness. Often, we initially seek treatment to address a specific concern and then begin to uncover other areas of our lives in which we want to make meaningful change. My goal is for this process to feel supportive, affirming, and appropriately challenging.
Many of us feel exhausted by self-doubt and a lack of things going "right" in our lives. These struggles don't have to rule over you. Feelings of overwhelming guilt, fear and sadness are often road blocks to fulfilling life we all crave. Many of my clients feel stuck in old patterns, and seek ways to make the changes they know they need. I invite clients to experience the profound changes they have been seeking by working collaboratively with them to achieve all their goals.
A fundamental approach to my method of therapy is developing a therapeutic relationship built on compassion and authenticity. I enjoy working with individuals, couples and adolescents in their transitions in life, relationships, depression/anxiety, stress, grief and loss. I provide LGBTQ affirmative therapy, in that this population will be treated with a caring and welcoming environment. I am trained in evidence based Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR).
She provides Individual, Couples and Group Psychotherapy to adults and adolescents. Dr. Bates is eager to apply her experience and compassion with clients as they begin to address issues that will help them improve their quality of life and attain a sense of fulfillment.
Most of the individuals drawn to me are people who find themselves in the midst of a transition in their life. Many are college students, transplants, frequent travelers and interstate commuters who want a consistent presence to check in at a time when change is not only inevitable but overwhelming.
My clients battle with a range of issues: identity, depression, anxiety, life transitions, communication, self-esteem, trauma, shame/guilt, personality. Clients describe me as a "direct" therapist, meaning, I am able to empathically tell them the truth or assist them in holding themselves accountable for what they are trying to change. A strong therapeutic relationship is the basis for treatment success; therefore, I strive to be my authentic self in forming therapeutic relationships.
My practice primarily focuses on Gay Men, Religious Trauma and the LGBTQIA+ Community. I understand that seeking therapy can a difficult decision, but one that can lead to significant growth and healing. It is not uncommon to experience feelings of shame, isolation, and anxiety as well as lack of acceptance from friends, family and social networks. I am here to provide a supportive space where you can explore your thoughts and feelings, and work through any challenges you may be facing.
