Professional statement

Mary Tate is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker based out of Chelsea in New York City. At her practice, Tate Psychotherapy, she works with all age groups, ranging from children, to adolescents, to adults, as well as the family as a whole.

Mary work’s with families and children around various challenges and transitions, including helping families who are going through divorce,meeting with children who are learning about a new medical diagnosis or have a sudden behavior or emotional change; Many of the adults she works with are going through life transitions, have low self-esteem, and are experiencing overwhelming feelings of stress and anxiety.

New Yorkers are used to keeping up with a certain pace, never slowing down. They carry around their bags filled with the many things we need for their daily lives, but never stop to think about what else they are carrying around. Many people are carrying anxiety, grief, and stress. They may be dealing with sadness over a recent break up, fear over a doctor’s appointment, or feeling overwhelmed about their job. It can be easy to put these things in bags aside, but they are always there, at home, only to return to it after the day is over.

Mary is there to help unpack some of the hard stuff that others don't see. Her goal for you is to see your strength, discovering your inner ability to tackle these issues, even when it seems like it you can’t.

With her specialized training in trauma work, children's behavioral and emotional issues, and therapy for those with chronic health conditions, Mary uses a variety of techniques and modalities. Her approach will be tailored to you and sheI believe that the relationship and trust we build is the best measurement for success.

Through your work together, you’ll be able to better manage what you’re carrying around each day, with the hope of bringing balance into your daily life!

Message to clients

It requires a lot of strength and courage to ask for help. Reaching out can be scary and unsettling, but you don't have to do it alone. I acknowledge what it took for you to seek help, and want to provide a safe, warm and comfortable environment for you to talk and open up.

A strong therapeutic alliance is the key in ensuring honest, open, and constructive communication. In my sessions, I like to work together as two experts tackling your problems. I am direct, interactive, and genuine and will always be honest and upfront with you. I believe that you have what it takes within you to overcome the struggles you face, and will be here to help you every step of the way.

My approach is strength-based and draws from many principles, including CBT, DBT, motivational interviewing and solutions-focused therapy. I know it can be hard to find a therapist that’s fitting for your individual situation, so I encourage and welcome any questions you may have prior to booking a session. I look forward to hearing from you, discovering your strengths, and working together to make steps in improving your quality of life.
