We give and we give and we give

We may be that person who is always available to accommodate other people. Maybe we are the DD when our friends want to go to the party. Maybe your one friend always wants you to go to their place to make it easier on them. We're always the ones doing and being of service to others. Maybe we're that Super Mom or Super Dad where we are going to work, coming home and making dinner, always driving Jack or Jill to their band practice.

A lot of people don’t realize they struggle with social anxiety.

A lot of people don't realize they struggle with social anxiety. Common internal monologues tend to go something like, "Did I talk too much?","Did I say that right?", "Did I offend them?" Or even noticing peoples mannerisms or facial expressions. We may interpret these by thinking that we automatically did something stupid when really they could of been picking lettuce out of their teeth after lunch.

She thoroughly enjoys helping individuals overcome depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, grief and loss, mood disorders, as well as family of origin concerns. Sherise takes a non-judgmental client-centered approach and has worked with individuals, couples, families and students of all ages throughout schools and non for profit agencies. She has had a lot of experience with children and adolescent populations. She also enjoys coaching clients through self-esteem and interpersonal challenges, and to improve their personal performance in all areas of their lives.  With a warm, open and empathetic style, she quickly establishes rapport and helps motivate her clients to improve their lives and create a joy filled existence. Sherise is a fun-loving and compassionate individual and feels strongly about using ones strengths and resources to overcome their barriers in life. When she is not immersed in creating magnificent mental fitness for clients, you could find her drinking endless cups of coffee at trendy coffee shops, scrambling on mountain peaks or running along the river pathways. She also really loves listening to live music, snowshoeing in the winter, and has been caught snaughling numerous times.

A favourite day in the life of Sherise would be immersed in the outdoors, so whether that is going for a walk or a run along the river pathways or if I’m feeling adventurous- going to climb a mountain. Oh and I love coffee, so I would combine that with stopping at my favourite eatery, Alforno!
