On this page are some of the self-hosted and outside resources that I frequently reference while consulting and coaching with other trauma survivors like you.
Everything on this page is freely available because:
- Religious trauma suuuuuuucks, doesn't it?! If we can stop/slow the cycle of your trauma and boost your business/career/life in the process, then research shows that this has an exponentially positive effect on resolving the world's trauma. Uhh... YES please!
- You're my people! I'm always game to throw down a 90's worship song reference and get nerdy about religious trauma.
- For anti-rape culture and trauma-sensitive reasons, I don't require an email address in exchange for "freebies." Of course, you're welcome to consensually join our non-spammy newsletter here. :-)
There's so much more where this came from! If you ever want to schedule a coffee or networking chat, let's make it happen!

The Turning: The Sisters Who Left—Thousands of women gave up everything to follow Mother Teresa, joining her storied Catholic order, the Missionaries of Charity. But some found that life inside this fiercely private religious order was not what they’d imagined...
The Other Latif—Throughout this award-winning investigation of Detainee 244 at Guantanamo Bay, Radiolab’s Latif Nasser reflects on American values and his own religious past, and wonders how this prisoner could be his namesake, a fellow nerdy, suburban Muslim kid, yet travel such a strikingly different path...
American Queer—This podcast memoir tells of a gay man's journey out of fundamentalist Christianity into becoming his true self, as told by Kevin James Thornton. (Random fact: Kevin is one of my Nashville neighbors, cool!)
The Opportunist—Each season of this series asks questions like, how does an everyday person turn into a thief, a scammer or a cult leader? Season 1 dives into the story of internet cult leader, Sherry Shriner. Season 2 follows a pharmacist who carried out a decades-long deadly fraud that became the FBI's top priority.
Guru: The Dark Side of Enlightenment—When we face challenges in life, we seek answers from people we believe can help us. When tragedy strikes an exclusive retreat with a self-help superstar, many people are left to wonder: how far is too far? This podcast tells the story of James Arthur Ray who was a celebrity self-help "guru" and an Oprah-endorsed teacher. But friends and family members of his followers questioned his unorthodox methods, and tried to stop him.
Conviction Season 2: American Panic—When John Quinney was ten years old, he took the stand to testify against his own father. He had come to believe that his dad Melvin was the murderous leader of a satanic cult. It would be decades before John would learn that his family was just one of many...

- Minton, E. A. (2015). In Advertising We Trust: Religiosity's Influence on Marketplace and Relational Trust. Journal of Advertising, 44(4), 403–414. "Most religious consumers are more trusting of advertising than nonreligious consumers are. Advertisers need to seek a balance between targeting religious because of a heightened sense of trust yet not taking advantage of these more trusting consumers. In addition to advertising ethics, this research provides insight to advertisers in integrating belief cues into advertisements. Thus, advertisers need to understand the religious composition of their target market and be aware of the differential influence of belief cues on product evaluations for religious versus nonreligious consumers. Advertisers desiring to offer brand extensions to niche religious markets may be able to do so through use of subtle belief cues, which will likely not detract from a neutral religious stance of a brand as a whole."

"Consumers face severe crises of identity and the need to rebuild their self-understandings in an unfamiliar marketplace of identity resources. Unable to remain comfortably in the ﬁeld of their primary socialization, they are nevertheless bound to it by investments in field specific capital. In negotiating this dilemma, they demonstrate the inseparability and co-constitutive nature of ideology and consumption."
