Professional Statement

If you are feeling confused, frustrated, angry, or heartbroken over your experience in religion you are not alone. Your pain is valid and you deserve compassion and support as you navigate your “what now”. Whether you stay in or leave religion or land somewhere in between, the most important thing is that you heal from any aspect of your religious experience that has caused harm. Deconstructing can be disruptive and can call nearly all of your life choices into question. You may be having relationship difficulties or mental health struggles as your navigate through this healing process.

I know what it is like to devote all that you are to a religion only to have your breaking point wondering what to do now. I know what it is like to try and change church culture. I know what it is like to live with pervasive cognitive dissonance and religious trauma. It is excruciating and I can help.

Using a trauma informed approach I will help you heal from your past and discover your core values so that you can live fully aligned with your highest self. After an assessment we will create a treatment plan to address your most pressing needs and will get to the healing!
