mental health support to help you recover from spiritual or religious trauma
Serving adults online and in the Sacramento area
the deep connection with your spirituality has been broken, and you're not sure how to rebuild
Spiritual and religious trauma can be a profoundly isolating and disorienting experience, leaving you questioning the very foundations of your beliefs and identity. As you grapple with the aftermath of your experiences, feelings of betrayal or abandonment may arise from the community or spiritual leaders you once trusted. Navigating the complexities of your emotions and the impact on your daily life can be incredibly challenging, making it difficult to find solace and maintain meaningful connections with others.
Shame, guilt, or anger are common emotions faced by those recovering from spiritual and religious trauma. You may struggle to reconcile these emotions with your prior beliefs or the expectations of your community. This internal conflict can make it difficult to engage in daily activities or find enjoyment in the pursuits that once brought you comfort.

why work with us?
I've spent many years specializing in helping people navigate through spiritual wounding and trauma recovery, including the sense of grief and loss that comes with it all. I incorporate my experience as a spiritual counselor and Chaplain, knowledge of culturally diverse interventions, and skills as a Brainspotting practitioner, to help people find healing and peace.
I work from a deep understanding of dealing with trauma and grief's impact on one's personal, emotional, and spiritual life, and I take healing spiritual wounds very seriously. I would be honored to help you navigate through the heavy emotions of spiritual/religious trauma so you can restore a sense of faith that feels authentic to you.
neurofeedback | therapy
I've been in the field since 2011 supporting people dealing with trauma and the feelings of grief, anger, shame, and confusion that comes with it. My professional background in mindfulness approaches, Mindful Self-Compassion, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy allow me to bring expertise into supporting others build more compassionate and attentive self-reflection, opening the door to kind understanding their own reactions to trauma, and rediscovery of their needs, boundaries, and identity.
My training in infralow and deep state neurofeedback also allows me to bring a powerful and unique tool into helping people in more readily and comfortably processing trauma in a way that's felt throughout the mind, brain, and nervous system, as much of this deep work on rebuilding faith and identity requires much more than time and/or talking.
