About the Author
"My heart of compassion comes from my own experiences with personal discouragement. I have learned that life can be hurtful, unfair, and very difficult to understand - making it easy to feel lonely, without hope, and completely overwhelmed because of the painful events that were experienced yesterday, because of the circumstances that are occurring today, or because of worrying about what might take place tomorrow.
I have dedicated my life to helping adults and teenagers who might be experiencing a variety of different discouragements, such as; relationship struggles, depression, anxiety, addictions, anger, negative thought patterns, grief, bitterness, and more..... Rise Above Ministries exists to offer encouragement spiritually, emotionally, and physically, as you learn how to transform your heart and mind through the power of Jesus Christ.
I do not charge fees for my groups or seminars because Rise Above is not a business to me. This is a ministry that is simply my way of thanking God for the physical, emotional, and spiritual healing He has given to me!"
CEO Rise Above Ministries
About Beth Giordano
Beth is a licensed Clinical Christian Counselor through the National Christian Counselors Association. Beth is not a state licensed counselor as she uses the truths within the Word of God to help restore joy, hope, and peace to people's lives.
Beth uses a "Whole Person" approach; spirit, soul, and body, when encouraging teens and adults as stated in 1 Thessalonians 5:23.
Beth is also a Certified Brain Health Coach through the Amen Clinics. Our brains are the organ of thought, emotion, and personality. They are important for our relationships, decisions, and attitudes - yet we rarely consider what they need in order to bring emotional, spiritual, and physical well being. Beth loves to teach teens and adults Dr. Amen's steps to better brain health!
A BETTER BRAIN MEANS A BETTER YOU!
