I approach therapy with a simple question: 

"What do you want out of life, and what is holding you back from that?" 

This question, and your answers, is where we begin the journey. I look forward to hearing from you.

Religious Trauma

If it's discussed at all, most examples of spiritual abuse refer to a church elder or faith leader inflicting abuse on congregation members, often by creating a toxic culture within the church or group by shaming or controlling members using the power of their position.

This form of abuse occurs under the guise of religion, including harassment or humiliation, which may result in psychological trauma.

The Hurt

Adverse religious experiences with religious institutions or people may leave you feeling wounded, triggered, or even traumatized. You can resolve and heal from these experiences. Being taught you can’t trust yourself, and experiencing guilt, shame, and judgment are just some of the ways you may have experienced adverse religious experiences.

The Healing

If you would like to explore whether you have experienced some level of religious trauma, you can start with this Adverse Religious Experiences Questionnaire: https://www.sanctuaryic.org/blog//adverse-religious-experiences (scroll down a tiny bit and you will see the Questionnaire).  This webinar is also helpful in learning more about Adverse Religious Experiences: https://www.religioustraumainstitute.com/workshops.
