Mary Tate, LCSW
Founder & CEO
I’m a New York transplant, originally from eastern North Carolina. I received my undergraduate degree in Social Work at Western Carolina University, and my Masters of Social Work (MSW) at The University of South Carolina. My clinical interests include treating anxiety, trauma, self-esteem and working with individuals who have chronic health conditions.
I have experience with a variety of populations, ranging from children to adolescents to young adults, as well as families as a whole. My clinical career began with in-home therapy to NYC families who risked foster care placement. Prior to founding Tate Psychotherapy, I served as Director of Social Work and Admissions at NYC's only pediatric skilled nursing facility for young adults and adolescents living with HIV/AIDS.
In addition to my education, I’ve received extensive training in trauma work and utilize various therapeutic models, with an emphasis on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT). I believe that therapy works best when it is a collaborative process, which starts with the mutual trust between the therapist and the client. I work to bring a warm, honest, supportive and direct approach into sessions and hope to create a safe and comfortable environment for each client I see.
I may be a southern girl at heart, but I’ve come to love living and working in NYC. Each therapist at Tate Psychotherapy upholds the values that I hold very dear. This practice was created with the core values of integrity, fun, responsiveness and professionalism. I am so excited you are here to experience the mini vacation for your soul that Tate Psychotherapy can bring you.
