I provide individual, group, family, and couples counseling for teens and adults, as well as a wide range of assessment services (e.g., forensic evaluation, substance use, psychodiagnostic, court-ordered). I've evaluated and treated clients with significant substance-abuse histories, trauma/grief, sexual/paraphilic disorders, and behavioral/anger problems. My diverse training experiences have taught me to consider the unique needs, backgrounds, and circumstances of every client and create a safe, open environment consistent with those individualized needs. No problem is too big or too small. Together, let's create a better tomorrow!

A specific area of training and practice includes working with trans/gender expansive folx and their families/significant others. I also specialize in working with folx with a variety of sexual orientations. Additionally, I have worked closely with probation departments, the Courts, and forensic populations and am comfortable providing expert testimony.

To me, therapy is a dynamic, two-way process where we identify specific, measurable goals and develop practical solutions. I focus on building a strong therapeutic alliance and fostering change in each individual who walks through my door. In utilizing an empathetic, non-judgmental approach, I strive to make every client feel comfortable and confident.

Brittany Bate's Groups

Exploring Gender Identity for High School Students

Many teens express questions about their gender identity, or are unclear about differences in gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation. If you have a high-school aged teen who has expressed a gender identity other than their sex assigned at birth (i.e., transgender, non-binary, gender-fluid, gender-queer, etc.) this group is for them. During our 6-week group, using a series of discussions, exercises, role-play, videos, and projects, teens will explore their gender identity, feelings, and questions. Throughout, a psychologist will provide psychoeducation and encourage dialogue in a gender-affirming, respectful environment.
