Professional statement

AKA the Theology Therapist. Hannah is an approachable and empathetic therapist for people raised religious or abuse survivors who feel like they’re lost or missing their life road map without religion.

Hannah uses trauma therapy with millennials, older adults, nonbinary and LGBTQ+ folx, and others who come from controlling and manipulative communities (i.e. JW, LDS, Evangelical, 12 Tribes, yoga) who have survived religious trauma, guilt and shame, and the fear of failure.

Together we can untangle the shame, fear, and anger you feel after leaving a toxic, fundamentalist, or cult-like religious community. You deserve to feel free to love who you want, set better boundaries, and build a new relationship with yourself.

Message to clients

If you’ve been called a “sinner” or a “heretic” or you’ve left a religious or spiritual community and thought, “that was pretty culty,” then you’re in the right place.

I go by the Theology Therapist because my recovery from fundamentalist Christianity led me to religious studies, yoga, and meditation. I get it because I’ve been called those things too.

My virtual office is a comfy space filled with books, blankets, and cushions. I’ll probably have tea or coffee in hand, I invite you to do the same.

I like to challenge toxic religious beliefs that you are bad or unlovable or that someone else is the expert on you. These are lies used to manipulate you. You can unlearn these stories you were taught. You deserve to live free of fear and shame with a spiritual life, if that’s something you desire, that gives you a sense of purpose and connection to a greater good. Let’s schedule an intro call today and get started!
