Dr. Deborah Bates

Licensed Psychologist | Psy.D.

I provide psychotherapeutic and assessment services for children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. I work from an Attachment-Based Psychodynamic perspective, a relationship-based approach that emphasizes the influence of previous experiences on one’s ongoing patterns and experiences. I incorporate a variety of treatment techniques, in order to bring restoration and repair to deep past pain, and to establish optimal functioning today. My therapeutic work is specifically designed to meet the unique needs and characteristics of each individual, couple, or family. I strive to make the therapy room a warm and safe environment where my clients feel heard and understood. I have special interests in adoption and attachment, developmental disabilities, marital relationships, trauma recovery, spiritual issues, and member care. I also enjoy providing psychological and academic evaluations.
