Insightful and Considerate
My first meeting with Kates was a very nice experience. I felt welcomed and like she would be willing to listen without judging me. She is also very considerate about your own feelings. It was a great experience and I am happy that she is my therapist.

When I first reached out to Elaine Kates, I was experiencing significantly traumatic issues with anxiety. Dr. Kates has always made me feel safe, which was so important to me and for which I am forever grateful. She possesses the rare combination of having both a remarkable intellect and a keen intuition. It took me a long time to really start opening up, and Dr. Kates was there gently and patiently guiding every step of the way. Oh, and her dogs are just adorably amazing. :)

Elaine deserves all the gold stars
I owe more than I'd like to admit to Elaine Kates. She is one of the most empathetic, straight forward, and intelligent individuals I've ever had the pleasure of meeting let alone working with. She has allowed me the room to choose how I want our sessions to progress, while gently nudging me in helpful directions with books, websites, and extra materials. She is also one of the most intuitive therapists I've ever gotten to work with. Always there when I need support. Thanks Dr. Ek!
