About Beyond Living

Exceeding Life As We Know It

Beyond Living, a practice that offers individual and group counseling, organizational training and consultation. We are firm believers that we often stand in our own way of "LIVING."

At Beyond Living, we want to join you on your journey and add value from a place of compassion.

The quote rings true- "go and love someone exactly as they are. Then, watch how they transform into the greatest truest version of themselves. When one feels seen and appreciated in their own essence, one is instantly empowered."

We believe in having  trusting relationships to create an empowering space.

What To Expect...

Guiding You On the Path of Living Beyond

Perhaps you're down or anxious - maybe you're unsure about the future of a relationship, or just feel that you aren't living the life you were meant to lead. Whatever your needs may be, I am here to offer support. Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery, and working together, we will be intentional on the journey by encouraging a positive outlook and the adoption of new attitudes and reactions. I have the tools and professional experience to work alongside you as we journey beyond limitations.
