  • Welcome

    You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. Please remember that your difficulties do not define you. They simply strengthen your ability to overcome.   -Maya Angelou

    Are you experiencing anxiety, stress, or depression and not sure what to do next?

    Does it feel like you are pressed on every side with conflict?

    If you have answered yes to either of these questions, you are in the right place!

    Initially, you may be hesitant to seek support for the things that seem hard to handle. Deciding on a counselor can be a difficult and should not be taken lightly.

    Beyond the Root Counseling and Consulting, PLLC brings a compassionate therapeutic space to individuals who struggle with unhealthy thinking, behavioral patterns, anxiety and depression through encouragement and empowerment while assisting individuals to explore life challenges and rediscovering themselves in a safe and supportive environment.

    As one discovers and revives their inner strengths through commitment to sessions, self-acceptance, and self-awareness, the ability to redefine their self-worth will allow them to live an enriched life.

    Sessions are tailored to meet the specific needs of the client to develop and improve emotional stability. Therapeutic work is done from an integrative approach to help individuals through the process by exploring the Root. There are four phases that are important for successful engagement and overall growth:

    R: recognition of how behavior and thought processes are affecting the current situation.

    O: observation and exploration of feelings, reactions, values and beliefs.

    O: overcome personal obstacles and develop new strategies and the willingness to be open to new thoughts and behaviors.

    T: transformation into a healthier version of oneself.

    Trying something new can be uncomfortable. Congratulate yourself on investing in your healing and wellness and for your willingness to invite self-growth into your life! By taking these first steps, feel confident that you will move towards being in a better place and becoming a better you.

    Be like a tree. Stay grounded. Connect with your roots. Turn over a new leaf. Bend before you break. Enjoy your unique natural beauty. Keep growing. -Joanne Raptis
