Kate McGee, Psy.D

Kate McGee, Psy.D - Director, Clinical TrainingAs Director of Clinical Training, I supervise early career mental health professionals at SelfWorks as well as outside health practices. I am a clinical psychologist with over 18 years of experience working with children, adolescents and adults from various cultural, socio-economic, and religious backgrounds. I am grateful for the opportunity to shape the career paths of fellow colleagues, while also providing evidence-based treatments for my clientele.

Therapy is an invaluable instrument for emotional healing and growth. My approach is warm, practical and collaborative. I create a safe, non-judgmental space for you to work through painful experiences. Through a trusted therapeutic alliance, you can safely process the experiences that have contributed to your suffering while learning self-awareness and self-compassion. Together, we challenge beliefs that interfere with comfort and fulfillment, and you will find new, healthier ways of coping with the inevitable stressors of life.

In my practice I work with a range of challenges, including mood disorders, anxiety, depression, trauma, life transitions, grief & bereavement. I also specialize in providing therapy to medically complex children, adults and their family members as they face the stressors associated with coping with acute and/or chronic illnesses.

A central component of my practice includes integrating solution-focused strategies and communicating the most effective treatment plan. I am experienced in the following modalities:

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Depression, Mixed Anxiety Disorders, & Chronic Pain
  • Applied Relaxation for Panic Disorder
  • Behavioral Activation for Depression
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Panic Disorder, & Social Anxiety Disorder
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Depression
  • Emotion Focused Therapy for Depression
  • Interpersonal Psychotherapy for Depression
  • Short-Term Psychodynamic Therapy for Depression

I graduated from Pace University in 2013 and completed both my internship and post-doctoral fellowship at NYU Langone Medical Center. Over the next six years, I worked as a clinical and neuropsychologist on the pediatric hematology-oncology service. Outside of work, I am happiest outside, hiking or by the ocean. I love to dance and have experienced and witnessed the healing power of movement for individuals from all walks of life.
