Certified Spiritual Counselor (VITA Method)
See our full therapist directory advertising policy.
Spiritual abuse haunts so many of us. Strict religions and high-control groups can affect your life even decades after leaving them. From difficulties in the bedroom to feeling like old beliefs are tattooed on your brain, the residue of authoritarian teachings can color huge swaths of your life. Fortunately, this does not have to be a life sentence.
I'm a spiritual counselor specializing in sexual repression. I've seen so many clients reclaim their truth, their power, and their pleasure from cults and religions that did not serve them. Through my own 10+ year spiritual healing journey after leaving the Mormon church, I know first-hand that true healing is possible and that the freedom on the other side is always worth it.
I am not a mental health professional, but instead a spiritual professional with rigorous training and years of experience. If you're an otherwise high-functioning person that could use some extra support in the spiritual and sexual side of your life, we're probably a good fit.
