I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 20 years of experience.


Deborah Tate, LCSW

It takes tremendous courage to reach out for support and therapy can be a way to enhance and build on strengths to move forward to a better more fulfilling sense of self. My approach is to partner with adult individuals and couples to navigate through life transitions and relational issues to regain hope and stabilization in their lives.

I utilize a strength-based, psychodynamic, and client centered approach. I believe in meeting my clients in their stage of change, utilizing harm reduction and motivational interviewing when appropriate.

My experience includes working with women and men in domestic violence situations, the LGBTQ community, Veterans, individuals with trauma, self-injury and eating disorders, and individuals struggling with alcohol and drug use.

I have over 20 years of experience as an LCSW, Board Certified Diplomat in Clinical Social Work, and EMDR certified provider. I have worked with a variety of clients, and am passionate about providing trauma informed care in treating co-occurring psychiatric and substance use disorders.

Reviews for 

Deborah Tate, LCSW

Debbie is exactly the kind of therapist for me that I hope everyone can find for themselves. Our conversations flow very well, and we've established a trust and understanding that I've never experienced with any other therapist.

She's amazing, knowledgeable and polite. Her words resonated within me.

Debbie is a phenomenal therapist, able to help me work through the multitude of issues I deal with in a friendly way that I feel helps me grow.

Debbie Tate has completely transformed my opinion about therapy based on previous experiences. The conversations we have are the right amount of interactive - I don't feel lectured, yet I don't feel like I have to carry the dialogue. The prompts and questions she raises are so in tune with any topic at hand, and I've never felt so much progress, productivity, and trust with any other therapist I've ever met with.

It's like talking to a helpful friend every week.
