Clergy/Religious Abuse

“You either walk inside your story and own it or you stand outside your story and hustle for your worthiness.”

Have you or someone you loved been harmed at the hands of a “godly person”? Perhaps it was a clergy of a church or Christian school you attended. Maybe it was at the hands of a “religious” lay leader or parent. Perhaps you have been shunned by a religious institution because you spoke up about something that was happening that was wrong. Clergy or religious abuse can happen in many ways. This kind of abuse rips away at the very core of who you were created to be. It brings harm to the most important relationship you will ever need.

Here at Renewing Hearts Family Counseling, we not only understand and have the practical knowledge to help you maneuver through the pain and heartache left by this kind of abuse, but we also have the personal experience of overcoming the pain and damage by individuals and institutions called the church.

Whatever the case, we are here to walk with you through this valley of darkness and help you find a renewed a fresh view of God and how He desires to know and be known by you. Setting religious organizations and people aside, we will help you find for yourself what a healthy relationship with God would look like and counteract the messages of harm that have been enacted on your body or the messages of shame that have taken over your life. Your journey to freedom from the bondage of shame is just a phone call away.
