We are real people, supporting real people, with real-life stuff. 

We watch TV, read books, make mistakes, have pets (you might meet, or hear, them), drink coffee, lose our keys, and watch Netflix. 

We work hard, have fun, love learning, and are deeply invested in being the best clinicians we can be for you.

We laugh, we talk, we check-in, and we support each other in our support of YOU.

We strive to show up authentically and hope we can help you feel empowered to do the same.

Are you stressedanxious, or concerned with one or more relationships in your life?

Do you feel alone or unsupported as you navigate various changes, challenges, life transitions, a new job, a new relationship, the loss of an old relationship, a new child, or a big move?

Are you, or a loved one, exploring your gender identity, gender expression, or pursuing your social or medical gender transition?

Or, maybe you are queer, transgender, nonbinary, or gender-diverse and looking for a clinician with lived experience, training, and knowledge to hold space for you?

Are you neurodivergent, and seeking neurodivergent-affirming therapy?

Are you autistic and seeking a therapist who can celebrate your countless strengths and special interests, while also being your teammate in creatively addressing challenges you may experience?

Are you, or a loved one, struggling with grief, loss, chronic illness, chronic pain, caregiver stress, or healing after a traumatic event?

Are you a BIPOC individual or couple who has been scouring Psychology Today looking for a BIPOC clinician to begin, or resume, your therapy journey?

  Are you queertransgendernonbinarygender-diverse, asexual, aromantic, lesbian, gay, pansexual, demisexual, genderqueer, and looking for safer, informed spaces to include clinicians who “just get it?”

Have you tried to solve the problems in your life on your own and realized you need help from someone else? Or maybe you just need a space, an hour a week, that is just for you.

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you have made the right choice by being here.

About Be BOLD Psychology

Brittany Bate, Ph.D. (she/her)
Owner/Founder Be BOLD Psychology & Consulting
Licensed Psychologist and Consultant

I have said for so long that change is really hard and really scary. Because of this, I believe everyone who comes to see me has at least one thing in common – they are brave, even if they do not know, or feel, it yet. But I think there is a deeper layer to the bravery that I hope to bring out of my clients.


We want you to go beyond and through brave, and be bold. Be BOLD in your pursuit of happiness.

Be BOLD in your journey to living your most authentic life.

Be BOLD in building the life you deserve, as the person you truly are.

Be BOLD in confronting your past trauma(s).

And be BOLD enough to face your addictions head-on, with my help of course.

I want you to be BOLD, but you do not have to be BOLD alone.

Don’t live in NC? No problem. As a PSYPACT provider, Dr. Bate can provide teletherapy to clients located in up to 35 states!
