Religious Trauma Syndrome

Common issues for those who are Divorcing Religion:


  • Recovering from toxic Purity Culture indoctrination

  • Navigating marriage with a still-believing spouse

  • Coming out as nonreligious to friends and family

  • Coping with deeply religious and conspiracy-believing relatives

  • Recovering from religious trauma syndrome


As a registered professional counsellor personally acquainted with religious trauma syndrome (RTS), I can relate. As a trauma-informed religious recovery consultant, I can help you explore how RTS is currently impacting your life and navigate your recovery journey.

Much like a marital divorce, Divorcing Religion can be painful, confusing, and exhausting – with the added burden of isolation. The grief experienced when leaving fundamentalism is compounded by a lack of support and understanding.

Developed by a formerly devout fundamentalist evangelical Christian of over 40 years, Divorcing Religion is an on-line, live, interactive 6-week workshop designed to help you transition out of religion and into secular life.
