At Beyond Finance, we believe that resolving debt is a lifestyle change. While our program will make your monthly payments more affordable right away, you didn’t get into debt overnight. Staying out of debt in the future can be easier if you actively nurture and improve your relationship with money over time. That’s why we offer a weekly conversation series to help our clients learn how to manage the complex emotions money creates while completing their debt resolution program.
How It Works
Each week, Dr. Erika Rasure, Beyond’s Financial Therapist, hosts a live video lesson and Q&A session exclusively for enrolled clients. The session includes a short presentation on a therapy-informed topic geared toward your unique needs and concerns. The lesson is followed by a private question-and-answer session where you can receive personalized answers and support.
Each hour-long session includes
- A short presentation on a relevant topic (which is recorded and shared with clients who couldn’t attend)
- A Live Q&A Session for Current Clients
How it Helps
Dealing with debt can be hard and, let’s face it, a little lonely. Luckily, your debt resolution program doesn’t have to be! Each session, you’ll be joined by a group of your peers – people just like you who are working to resolve their debt with the help of Beyond Finance.
Together you’ll have the chance to learn new skills and strategies from our financial experts, ask questions, and connect with people who understand what you are going through.
