You are on the Path to Discovering

Your True Self

You can learn toTrust Your Inner Compass again.

As a licensed therapist but, most importantly, as an individual who has been through what you're going through right now, I can help you make sense of the whirlwind of emotions you're experiencing and find the strength and resources to live a meaningful, authentic life.

Let me help you navigate this unfamiliar terrain. 

I know first-hand how difficult and overwhelming it can be to "start over" when you've left a group you dedicated your whole life to. I was raised in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and was a devout Mormon until early adulthood when my faith crisis began. I've since dedicated my work to helping others through the life-changing journey of healing spiritual wounds, rebuilding life, and reconstructing identity.

If you are currently in or have recently left a high-demand group or religion, you may be experiencing a number of difficult-to-name issues. Whether you need Post-Mormon Therapy specifically, a therapist that understands the religious deconstruction journey, or help deprogramming from a cult, you're in the right place.


You are not alone in your struggles, and you don't have to do this alone.

Trauma therapy at Trust Your Inner Compass

When we experience overwhelming, potentially life-threatening events, our brain and body do everything they can to help us survive. Sometimes this process goes haywire, and we find ourselves struggling to enjoy the present because of what happened

in the past.

EMDR therapy at Trust Your Inner Compss

Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an evidence-based treatment for trauma-related disturbances. As a trauma therapist, I use this type of therapy to help clients reprocess disturbing memories so that they can live more fully

in the present.

Ex Mormon therapy at Trust Your Inner Compass

Leaving the LDS church isn't easy. The grief and trauma you feel is real. Together we can process your loss of spiritual certainty and the trauma of being betrayed by an institution you trusted. Let me guide you through the process of rebuilding your identity and living a fulfilling life.
