I became a coach to help folks like myself stand in their power.  I have given my power away to so many gurus that I didn't know up from down & left from right (hence the name of my practice). Living with childhood trauma, sexual assault, addiction, religious trauma, codependency, anxiety, depression & CPTSD put me in a unique position to have empathy & compassion for my fellow humans in this world. I can help guide you out of the trenches because I've gotten out of them myself.  It has been a long road to regain my sense of self & the power I hold over my own life. This struggle in particular made me want to support others to make choices that build them up, not tear them down.  This led me to study what trauma does to people & to pursue my work as a trauma recovery coach.  I received my credentials through the IAOTRC & started my journey to pay forward what I have found to help me heal.  I partner with you to achieve the personal outcomes you desire in your journey back to your true self.  Life does not have to always be so hard & changing our perspective can help us to thrive in the most difficult times. Healing is most definitely possible.  Let me show you how.

Out of the night that covers me,

Black as the pit from pole to pole,

I thank whatever gods may be

For my unconquerable soul.


In the fell clutch of circumstance

I have not winced nor cried aloud.

Under the bludgeonings of chance

My head is bloody, but unbowed.


Beyond this place of wrath and tears

Looms but the Horror of the shade,

And yet the menace of the years

Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,

How charged with punishments the scroll,

I am the master of my fate,

I am the captain of my soul.

-William Ernest Henley

What can I say! Maybe I am biased, but this chick knows her stuff. And the most important thing, she’s not judging you. She’s been through it all herself. Practical, down to earth, and full of love for people. She is a true jewel. You won’t be disappointed and you won’t regret your decision to choose her as your coach.


I am beyond grateful for the time, effort and energy that Evangela put into our sessions. She showed up every time, open, ready, vulnerable and smiling. She humanized the practice greatly by sharing her own personal struggles, which made the experience that much more impactful for me. I appreciate the helpful tips and tools for practice, and would love to join another session to continue on with her. 


Evangela is great at creating a safe and trusting environment.  She is able to make all matters clear and provide a takeaway for perspective.  She is open to sharing vulnerable stories which allows me as a participant to want to open up and share more for true healing and building of tools to grow as an individual.  I would absolutely work with Evangela again and recommend anyone looking for coaching contact Beyond The Guru.  I will absolutely recommend her to everyone I know.  Amazing experience that I am now a better person for having participated in these coaching sessions.
