Offering virtual services (online/video and phone sessions!) to new clients during COVID-19 for individuals, couples, and families! I've evaluated and treated clients with significant substance-abuse histories, trauma/grief, sexual/paraphilic disorders, and behavioral/anger problems. A specific area of focus is working with the gender expansive community. 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. I have also 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.

LGBT+ Virtual Support and Process Group

Many teens may have questions about their sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, etc. If you have a high schooler/rising high schooler, who has expressed feeling as though their gender does not match their sex assigned at birth, that they are unclear about their romantic, physical, emotional, or sexual attraction, or are exploring various terms and how they may apply to them (i.e., transgender, non-binary, gender fluid, bisexual, pansexual, demisexual, gay, lesbian, etc.), this group is for them. Additionally, stressors and challenges specifically related to social distancing, isolation, at-home schooling, and COVID-19 will be explored!

COVID-19 Virtual Support Group For Teens

Feeling overwhelmed, unsure, or having a hard time managing changes as a result of COVID-19? Feeling out of sorts, discouraged with all the unknowns, restless, bored out of your mind, overwhelmed with the idea of “online school,” or disconnected from your friends and/or significant others that you are used to seeing every day? Join Dr. Brittany Bate and other teens for a 6-week, weekly support group to share ideas, resources, talk, hang out, and maybe learn a few tips and tricks on how to tackle this whole “social distancing” thing.
