Ray Rivers really heard me. Ray's spiritual groundedness held the space of safety and honor for my fragile broken heart to heal and inspired me to keep growing my innate genius and believing in possibilities beyond my current circumstances. For me to say this, given my history and background of not trusting others, is for me to say a lot. I highly recommend Ray Rivers and Beyond Therapy. More...

Mr. Ray Rivers is definitely a blessing in disguise. The way that he goes about treating his patients is definitely one of a kind. After being in a dark place for over 10 years with my spouse he has brought us to the light. He has changed my life, my family life and my marriage for the best. The words that he said to us during our one on one session has definitely opened my eyes that both of us took advantage of one another. Like they say 3rd times a charm. Mr. Ray is our 3rd time seeing a counselor but I can say this will be our last because of the tools that he has given us and the way that he makes us look at life. I just want to thank Ray for saving my family. To any man out there reading this please go in with a open mind and heart. Be willing to do whatever it takes to have a happier home and happier family. For those of you who have kids you just don't know what you are doing to them. I have 3 kids and I definitely know what I've done to them, so please take the next step to be loved and happy. More...

Ray Rivers is the real deal. My husband and I had been in a very dark place for the last 10 years. We have attempted to see numerous therapist with no success. Whenever we attempted to talk about issues it would lead to a horrible argument and days of not speaking to one another in addition to sleeping separately. Ray has a spiritual connection to a higher power that is truly like none I’ve ever seen. He was able to give us the tools that we needed to open the doors to communication and to forgive one another and move forward. My husband and I have been talking non stop and have been able to talk about any and every issue that has ever plagued our relationship. We no longer have to walk around on egg shells. I have my best friend and love of my life back. Ray I will never be able to thank you for all that you have done for us. You are truly a God Send. More...

I recommend Ray to anyone who is looking to create a deeper connection with their spouse. I'm blown away every time my spouse and I have a session by how practical love can be once you just pour into your significant other.

If you are looking for REAL help for your marriage, then RAY RIVERS is the REAL deal. He models love and compassion in the work he does with us, while challenging us to do the same. God bless you, Ray! You are doing the good work of the Lord. Ray is second to NONE!!! More...

Ray speaks from the heart and genuinely cares for his clients. He changed my life in a profound way. Not only did he help my wife and I through a tumultuous time in our relationship, but he brought us closer and more starry eyed than ever before. He listens well and give great advice. His schedule was flexible and he was even there for me for a quick phone chat when the chips were down. He taught me how to act with love and softness in every situation and how to become the man that I want to be. I highly recommend him as a therapist. More...

I spent the past 8 weeks trying to think of a reason to give Mr. Rivers less than a five star review but there are none. Metaphysically beautiful person, thoughtful, kind and insightful. Bends the shape of reality until things become clear. Ray is living his calling and in a dark time as a skeptical, standoffish woman who wasn't looking for a therapist he rocked my world !! More...

Ray Rivers changed my life completely for the better, in every way I was in pain and needed support- he was like an icy lake in the desert of my life at the time. I feel strong, at peace and know who I am and I love my life - thank you Ray!!! You are not an ordinary therapist you are amazing!!!! More...

Ray changed the course of our marriage! Above all, he taught us to see our relationship in a different/ more loving way and showed us how to better communicate with one another. He truly is a game changer and we will forever be grateful that we found him! More...

Where to start? I had known Ray Rivers since I was a young man, but as often happens people go their own ways and you don't see each other for many years. For whatever reason, the universe brought us back together just in the nick of time. We came together to discuss old times and to learn about what was new in each other's lives. Ray told us about his growing practice and we were very excited for him and what he was doing, but my wife and I never thought that we would ever need his services. That did not turn out to be true. A year and a half ago my wife and I found ourselves in the midst of a severe marital crisis. We had decided that the relationship was not worth continuing and we both agreed the divorce was the only way forward. Soon after this decision, and unbeknownst to me, my wife reached out to Ray and had a long discussion with him. Later that same day she called me and told me and if I wanted to save our relationship I should call Ray as well. I told my wife that I had just spoken to Ray, and I told her that I did want to save it. I called Ray back and he set up a time for us later that evening. Upon walking in the door, Ray promised us that we were going to fix this problem right here and right now. I was very resistant to the wisdom he was sharing with us that evening. He spoke some very difficult truths. Difficult for an old friend to say to another, and difficult to hear on my part. Over the next 12 hours or so, I experienced one of those come-to-jesus moments. Through his wisdom, I began to let go of the self-righteous positions that were causing me so much pain, and causing so much turmoil in my relationship. That next day I decided to surrender all that negativity to God and let it all go. I decided that my relationship was worth it. I decided that it was to my benefit to humble myself before my wife, to the point of getting on my knees and kissing her feet. That was a very powerful moment, and it not only changed our relationship, it changed my entire life. I soon figured out that the same problems I was having in my relationship with my wife were being repeated throughout my life, with friends, family, and at work. This wisdom he shared started me on a path that has brought about so much healing throughout my entire life. I am so grateful for his wisdom and his friendship. I will never be able to fully repay him for the gifts he has shared with us. Thank you Ray. More...

Ray is a wonderful guy to work with. He gets to the heart of the matter and helps both individuals, and couples, work through what may be blocking them. I have seen him in both capacities and am every thankful I found him. More...

Ray is a special person. "The label "therapist" or "counselor" doesn't begin to describe what Ray brings to the table. Ray operates at an elevated level of consciousness, has developed a deep understanding of human relationships, and is thus uniquely capable of getting to the root of the tension in a relationship and is highly adept at providing a pathway, with direction, towards healing and recovery for two wantingly loving people. I believe Ray is capable of helping anyone who wants to learn a healthier, happier, stronger, and more deeply fulfilling way of loving their partner. More...

Ray Rivers has brought me peace in my Marriage that I never thought possible. His genuineness in helping us created such a loving space, whereby we were able to look at ourselves and feel comfortable sharing our deepest thoughts with him. Ray showed us how to humble our hearts to one another and to realize that nothing else is more important than how we love and treat one another. I realized my emotions were over-the-top a lot because I did not feel I was in a safe and trusting space, and Ray showed my husband and I how to create that space. Forever grateful! More...
