See what people are saying about us
"Sharise is by far one of the most humble, welcoming, and clinically-grounded mental health professionals that I've ever worked with before.Her ability to take therapeutic information and share it with audiences in an informal and down-to-earth way are second to none.
Our organization called upon Sharise to deliver a workshop on self-care for our participants and she was nothing short of phenomenal. After the engagement, attendees shared how warm and soothing the environment was for them. We understand that the spaces we serve in are only as safe as our facilitators allow them to be; and Sharise ensured that everyone was comfortable that evening.
With that being said, I give Sharise the highest recommendation for her expertise, services, and commitment to helping others through therapy."
