Deconstruction Is Hard, But You Don't Have To Do It Alone...
It may feel like you're the only on wrestling with your faith, but as a Faith Deconstruction Coach, I can pinky promise you are not alone in this wilderness.
I also know that safe and supportive spaces can be really hard to find, so I created one and I'd love for you to be part of it...Right now, exactly as you are!

As a certified life coach, seminary-trained online pastor for 11+ years, and a Faith Deconstruction Coach I have a lot of experience helping people navigate faith...
But deconstruction is also very personal for me.
I learned to be a people-pleaser at an early age because we moved a lot, and it felt like I was always the new kid trying to figure out where I fit in.
When my hubby and I started going to church in our late 20s (because “it would be good for our kids”), I was ecstatic to find out that the rules and expectations were pretty cut and dry. It didn’t feel like legalism; it felt like an instruction manual that laid out a plan for “How to be a better person” and, perhaps more important to me, “How to be accepted.”
After a few years of being deeply embedded in the church, I walked away with a pretty big case of #ChurchHurt and entered a season of deep doubts and wrestling. I was deconstructing from toxic religion, even though (at the time) I didn’t know that’s what it was called.
It took years of self-love, therapy, coaching, and trauma recovery to create a healthy spiritual life that actually nourishes me, without pressure to be who people think I should be…
It's my hope that you’ll also find healing and space to curiously explore what your soul's deepest longings.
You won't be pressured to believe what I believe or practice what I practice.
Instead, you'll have the support you need to find healing and curiously explore what your soul is longing for most. I’ll be a guide walking beside you, not a guru directing your every step so that I get the credit for your happiness.
(Gross, right? But we know it happens alllll the time in Christian spaces so let’s just agree not to go there, K???
