Divorcing Religion offers online support similar to therapy or counseling to help those who have left harmful religion behind recover from religious trauma therapy.

If you are making the journey from sacred to secular life, I can help. A formerly devout Christian of 40 years, I am now a registered professional counsellor and religious recovery consultant devoted to helping others navigate Religious Trauma  Syndrome (RTS) and recovery.

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.

The Workshop

Have you come out of a fundamentalist or authoritarian religion? Rejecting our former belief system can leave us feeling untethered and struggling with an existential crisis. We may suffer from religious trauma syndrome and other forms of PTSD.

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.

In addition to one-on-one recovery work, group support plays a vital role in healing from religious trauma. To that end, I invite you to explore the online Divorcing Religion Workshop.
