Work at the Intersection
of Religion and Psychotherapy

For psychotherapists, issues related to religion can be a clinical and ethical minefield! Don’t let your sessions blow up because you weren’t prepared to discuss…

  • Family conflict over religion including practices and rituals
  •  Religious trauma from being abused or abandoned by leaders, family members, or communities
  • LGBTQ+ issues that are distressing or confusing
  • Being in a mixed faith marriage without guidance on how to balance two traditions
  • Questions about maintaining their faith and cultural heritage when personal values collide with religious values
