Our Story

Be With was started to meet the needs of individuals who were seeking healing from trauma and life experiences. When options such as talk therapy, yoga, meditation, and bodywork are not trauma-informed they fail to meet the needs of the person suffering and oftentimes are re-traumatizing. Instead of being part of the solution, they add to the pain and suffering. Healing from conditions such as Post Traumatic Stress (PSTD & CPTSD), anxiety, depression, and burnout requires more than just talking things through or a few yoga classes. The mind, body, and spirit all need to be healed in a safe environment with support from a like-minded community for an individual to live their healthiest life, but there wasn't a program or organization that offered integrated healings on all levels, so we created Be With.

Our Mission

Empowering people by normalizing the human experiences of trauma through education, support, and community.
