Meet the Coaches

With Mike and/or Carolyn as your guide, you will experience a journey from what you currently are experiencing to what you want to be experiencing. They are dedicated to assisting you in discovering who you really are, and where you really want to be—Your Beyond.

Help is the story of two women who share their life-long journeys of going in-and-out of private and public mental health systems as well as the subsequent impact on their lives. By examining a multitude of possible causes for their never-ending symptoms, just about every avenue available to them was explored in order to find the primary source of their illnesses. Upon discovering their food allergies and many food intolerances, they both overcame their mental illness diagnoses…all of them.
