Announcement icon I am heavily experienced in working online with both groups in individuals. I have in-person options as well in my Summerlin Office.
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. 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! You deserve personal fulfillment and joy, from your responsibilities as well as every aspect of your life.
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. 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.

Michele Bates's Groups

Caregivers

It’s a heavy responsibility to be in charge of a loved one. While ultimately it’s a role you feel love and honor in doing, the day-to-day duties can be overwhelming. This online group brings together those who know what you’re going through. Plus our groups are led by experienced professionals who can provide expertise, not just empathy. If you’re feeling the pressure of the stewardship of your loved one’s wellbeing, please join us and you’ll see that you’re not alone, even when it feels like you’re in the dark.

More about this group

Grief and Loss

No matter how old you are or your life situation, death is traumatic. It can be difficult to know how to fill a hole you know you can never really fill. This online group is a place to give and receive support with those who are going through the same thing, learning together how to traverse grief in a healthy and life restoring way. Plus, you’ll get the benefit of experienced licensed therapists guiding you through the process: helping you learn skills to navigate your life no matter what challenges come your way.
