We see peace in the place of chaos.
We see function where there appears to be dysfunction. Our goal is to tap into the strengths you possess, that are often times masked by life’s complexities through therapeutic intervention and resource building.  Let us assist you in bridging the gap between the problem and the solution.

walkingbookcoverSharise Nance’s second publication, “Walking the Tight Rope of Life: Refuel, Renew and Re-center Your Work-Life Demands” published by Expected End Entertainment will be released 4/1/12017. The workbook was created and dedicated to individuals in the healthcare and helping profession experiencing difficulty disconnecting from the work day and/or struggling with the emotional, mental and physical fatigue or burnout often associated with this field of work. These individuals give so much, so often and to so many that they often neglect the time needed to invest in their own self care needs. Walking the Tight Rope of Life will encourage these professionals to practice good self-care as well as find renewal in their work in order to experience more balance and satisfaction in their professional and personal lives.
