Meet Your Host

Hi, I'm Brian! I'm a pastor, Enneagram coach, and speaker.

I'm also a fellow spiritual abuse and religious trauma survivor.

After a three-peat of spiritually abusive environments at the hands of self-ignorant and sometimes toxic leadership, it was time to step away from those places for my health and sanity. To quote one of my favorite movies, "I have seen enough to know I have seen too much." (Bonus points if you know the reference.)

Thanks to a few years of counseling and the compassionate witness of others, I've started processing my history of carrying 10+ years of the C-PTSD that came with my experience with spiritual abuse and religious trauma as a pastor.

I discovered my own agency and finally felt empowered to make choices for myself, rather than taking a passive role in my own story.

Today, I'm honored to be your host and guide through the process of moving through the pain and grief of our stories toward healing and wholeness.

You may be broken, but you are also beloved. And there's room for you here.
