Religious trauma is a deep wound—it continues to hurt the one who has experienced it in the most harmful and toxic ways.

Do you feel trapped by the beliefs or teachings of your childhood religion?

Or perhaps you’ve stepped back from these teachings, but feel guilty or lonely because of the “moral” lessons drilled into your head from your childhood even though those lessons are no longer serving you?

Has your church, or worse, your family, made you feel like a "less than" human being just because of

Who you are?

What you believe?

Who you love?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then our online course Healing Religious Trauma is the answer to begin your healing journey.

The course you’ve been asking for is now here.
You’re minutes away from beginning your healing journey and living free from the harm church has caused you.

Healing Religious Trauma is your first step to…

Releasing the shame and guilt church placed on you.

Identifying the ways religious trauma is impacting your life.

Reclaiming your spirituality to live an empowered and authentic life.

Discovering tangible ways to protect yourself from people who wield their toxic theology and beliefs at you.

Believing in yourself and being assured that…

You are not a mistake.

You are not flawed.

You are not a sin.

You are deeply loved and accepted just as you are.

What you’ll also discover, in Healing Religious Trauma, is you are not alone. And the data proves this.

Counselors and therapists* are beginning to recognize the harmful effects that religious indoctrination can cause through…

The weaponization of scripture.

The feelings of being unworthy.

The forced isolation and abandonment by church leaders and members—and sadly, even family members.

The long term harm that condemnation and judgment do to a person’s mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.

Healing Religious Trauma is a thoughtfully developed course that guides you in peeling back the layers of the harmful and often painful experiences religious conditioning has caused you.

Are you ready to heal the deep wounds created by the old narratives of organized religion?

Then Healing Religious Trauma is your first step into the deep soulwork that will help you develop your own spirituality through a new, more personal lens that is formed through healing and hope.

Healing Religious Trauma was developed especially for you by Rev Karla.

For years, Rev Karla has shared her story of deconstructing from Christianity and healing from religious trauma.

Her story has resonated with thousands of you, and her videos have been viewed millions of times.

One glimpse into Rev Karla’s personal healing journey is all one needs to know that hope and healing are possible for every one should they be open to doing the soulwork within themselves.

From releasing the toxic abuse of patriarchy, healing from her religious trauma, then discovering a meaningful spiritual path that isn’t captive to a rigid dogma, there is no other better qualified to help you heal from the harm that religion has caused than Rev Karla.

Rev Karla spent her formative years inside evangelical Christianity. Inside the church of her youth, Rev Karla experienced abuse in the form of gaslighting, manipulation, toxic control tactics, and sexism that attempted to not only control her, but to also convince her that only devotion to the Church, rather than to God, determined her worth.

The feeling of being broken, alone, and somehow less spiritual, consumed Rev Karla for years after she broke away from the toxicity of her former church.

Seeing first hand the spiritual abuse that deeply hurt members of other churches solidified the knowledge that her personal journey of healing had to include helping others recognize and heal their own religious trauma.

Rev Karla has found her sacred path that enriches not only her life, but her spirituality as well.

Developed over the past four years, this course was more than just another step in Rev Karla’s journey of healing, it was part of her deepening connection with the spirituality she has formed for herself.

Through her years of journeying through her own healing, and teaching people how to do the same, Rev Karla created Healing Religious Trauma as a way to help those who are hurting from their own religious trauma, and develop healing within themselves so that we all may begin to shift the social consciousness.

Join Rev Karla for this unique opportunity to begin healing. She is someone who truly understands what it means to walk a similar path to your own personal, spiritual journey.

From a very young age we are taught that God is an ever-watchful judge that condemns each of us for our sins.

We are taught that God is loving, unless you are part of the LGBTQ+ community.

We are taught that God is forgiving, unless you are pro-choice.

We are taught that God will welcome us with open arms, unless we are different from the people filling the front row in church on Sundays.

As surprising as it may be to some people, these lessons aren’t the ones that lead people back to the church. These lessons are the ones that drive people like us out of those doors.

Organized religion can keep their hatred, their gaslighting, and their abuse, locked within their closed doors and their closed minds.
