Hi! I'm Sarah Kate (aka SK) Wilder. I'm a Licensed Therapist, queer person and survivor of religious trauma. I am so excited to create this group for people who are wrestling with the harmful stories and experiences that they were given in religious settings. While we don't get to choose the stories that we're given from family, church/temple, community and society, when we own our experiences we have the power to create a story that feels true, authentic, and honors our inherent worthiness. I hope this is a space of healing from shame and fear to own our worthiness and authentic selves.
Opening mindfulness, breathing, or grounding activity
Group Discussion on the week's topic such as: what is religious trauma, impact of purity culture, messages on embodied identities, grief and loss from changing belief systems, etc.
Closing Ritual chosen by the group
$75 per 75 minute group session.
This is private pay but the therapist can provide you a receipt (i.e. superbill) to send to your insurance if they provide an Out Of Network (OON) reimbursement for telehealth group therapy.
Connect with others who have experienced religious trauma so that you know you're not alone
Understand how harmful religious experiences impacted you so you can grow in self compassion
Reclaim agency, freedom, and choice so those experiences don't hold you back from who you are and the life you want
