Rebuild a life that is authentic and on your own terms.

Book your free consultation

Professional and secure online therapy for folks navigating religious deconstruction and the effects of adverse religious experiences and spiritual abuse.

We work with people who have been raised in an unhealthy religious or belief system and experience a gap between who they know they are internally, and who they feel able to portray within their society or community.

How we can help you

We help our clients to:

  • Understand how their past informs how they experience the present. 
  • Live authentic and congruent lives, especially when it comes to faith and religion, sexuality, and vocation. 
  • Work through the unique dynamics related to religious deconstruction, spiritual abuse, and adverse religious experiences. 
  • Build skills to live the best life possible with confidence and vision. 

Our clients are able to establish meaning for their life that is consistent with their own values and supported by healthy community. 

Our Approach

We provide client-centred, confidential, and safe space to do long lasting and deep inner work. This "in-between" space offers the chance for transformation that applies to all areas of life. 

Our integrated approach offers many options for exploration and growth.

What to Expect

  • Authenticity

    We are an every-day, down-to-earth people and we avoid top-down relationships, admit to our own shortcomings, and meet our clients on a personal, human level.

  • Connection/Community

    We are built for connection; when we truly experience healthy connection and community, so much can change and be restored.

  • Curiosity

    We are life-long learners and hold a strong curiosity about the world and believe in “further up and further in.”

  • Collaboration

    We believe in the ‘village’ and we highly value collaboration with others whose work intersects with ours, whether other mental health professionals, artists, faith leaders, NGOs, and more.

  • Respect

    we highly respect the autonomy of our clients and their process, and hold space for all individuals, regardless of religion, sexuality, gender, age, or ethnicity.

  • Consistency

    We are trustworthy and we do what we say that we will do.

Yes, we use only HIPAA compliant, secure technology for our sessions and the storage of our notes. Confidentiality is of top importance and we do everything in our power to make sure this is the case, especially through the internet. If you would like more information about which specific programs we use, we are happy to answer any questions!

Within Canada, we can see clients who are located in all provinces and territories, except for Quebec (due to provincial regulations). 

Technology offers a lot of flexibility and many of our clients live all over the world, especially in the Middle East. We have to follow the regulations for counsellors/therapists in the country where each client is located. Unfortunately, due to this, we am unable to see clients who are in the US.

However, if you are from or located in a country where we have never seen a client, we am happy to do research on the regulations in that country as part of deciding whether we are a good fit.

That's no problem! we offer a free 20 minute consultation without any pressure to book a session afterwards. It is really important to us that both you and your counsellor feel good about working together.

We have in the past and may again in the future, but at this point we currently see clients exclusively online.

Studies overwhelmingly suggest that it is! We encourage you to do your research, but just as a place to start, check out these articles:

We use an integrated approach to therapy, as we believe that this offers endless possibilities for exploration; however, we mostly draw from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Family Systems Therapy. See our blog for more information.
