Michele Bates, MSSW

Michele Bates the psychotherapist from Las Vegas Nevada helping people with coping skills.

My philosophy

Our society is full of quiet heroes who are keeping families, friendships and communities together—through pain, trauma, crisis, and major changes. These can be very isolating situations, and I specialize in working with those who are facing challenging situations that aren’t going to go away, such as grief, parents and loved ones of those with mental illness, and caregivers of aging parents or with a lifelong disability. You may often feel exhausted, anxious, or overwhelmed and in need of ways to help you through the day. A second area of focus is with working women and career changers. I believe that it’s never too late to be who you want to be or discover something new.

What You Deserve

As you are on this journey in the service of others, or in need of some self-discovery and inspiration, it is truly possible for you to find your own pathway to joy in every single moment of life, even the hard ones. You deserve personal fulfillment and joy, from your responsibilities as well as every aspect of your life.

I Can Make It Happen

I specialize in tele-therapy online, and have worked for years building lasting connections with clients through online technology. The work you are doing in your life is important. And so are you. Through knowledge, awareness, and skills, I can teach you how to calm the chaos and find lasting peace and joy through self-awareness, personal empowerment, and a transcendence from the day-to-day challenges you face. There is a lot of needless suffering you may be placing on yourself; I am here to help free you of that, so you can continue to be a source of strength for those around you.
