While many people come to psychologists only when their problems become overwhelming, they almost always leave even the first session with new perspectives on their problems and thoughts about different ways to approach solving them. The shame and anxiety people often feel before seeing a psychologist quickly evaporates, as a working alliance develops between the person and the therapist. In a setting of mutual respect, Dr. Gates works to understand you and why you have developed problems in your life. She conveys her thoughts on how these problems began and became increasingly difficult as a means to find the unique solution for you. Each person is different and the greater their understanding of themselves, the wiser their choices about both major and minor paths they take in life.

Evening sessions are currently available.
