North Carolina Treatment Providers

Suzanne F. Bates, Ph.D.

As an eating disorders specialist, Dr. Suzanne Bates treats the full range of eating disorders and body image issues.  She provides assessment and psychotherapy for adult, and young adult, men and women.  Treatment modalities are evidence-based, primarily Social Learning Theory and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), which effectively change symptoms and illuminate meaning and values.  In treatment clients gradually learn how to best care for themselves and how to sustain psychological health beyond their time in treatment.
Suzanne completed a postdoctoral fellowship in Mood Disorders at the University of Michigan Medical Center and published scholarly articles on eating disorders, addictions, psychological assessment, anxiety disorders and mood disorders, marriage and family therapy, and detection and treatment of psychological disorders in primary care. She has clinical experience in a variety of treatment settings, including inpatient and partial hospitalization programs, college counseling centers, and the VA.
Clients and colleagues often describe Suzanne as warm and supportive, with sense of humor, and focused on learning and growing.
