Tasheena Gates, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Looking for help can be intimidating and can invoke uncomfortable feelings. As a passionate Licensed Mental Health Counselor my goal is to create a safe and comfortable space where my clients feel free to unpack their stressors and start their healing journey. I want my clients to have a chance to be heard and validated.

Professional Experience

My counseling approach is non- judgement and collaborative. I utilize a variety of therapeutic techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT) Solution Focused Strategies (SF) and Motivational Interviewing (MI). I am also trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). I enjoy working with individuals with anxiety, depression, anger management struggles, low self -esteem, stress, substance use, trauma and lifestyle changes.

I am a graduate from Canisius College where I obtained both my Bachelor’s and Master’s. I have worked in multiple settings including schools, nursing homes, inpatient, outpatient and day hab. I am passionate about exploring how our past impacts our present and future selves. If you feel that we are a good match feel free to make an appointment. I would be happy to meet you and begin your healing journey.
