Judith Singer Bates, Clinical Social Work/Therapist  in Halifax
Verified by Psychology Today
Clinical Social Work/Therapist, MSW
“I am best able to help clients who are desirous of making changes in their lives and understand that "the slower you go, the faster you get there". My practice provides a safe space for patients to put all of their thoughts and feelings into words. As patients talk, they learn about themselves and better understand their journey. As the unconscious becomes conscious, patients are able to make more thoughtful and meaningful choices and thus begin to live more full and meaningful lives.
