DO YOU LONG FOR CLARITY?
Are you tired of feeling stuck and overwhelmed in your deconversion?
Are old ways of thinking and being in the world robbing your life of new meaning?
Do you want to connect more deeply with your humanity as you explore life after religion?
Are you ready to write a new chapter and embrace a new story—your own story of boldly living a life beyond belief?
What if you could get some time back?
Unfortunately, there’s no way to get back the time you spent inside an unworkable belief system, and this realization is often accompanied by a deep sense of loss. I’m not going to “silver-line” the pain of this loss by claiming it has a special purpose or is part of some bigger plan.
However, if in fact this one life is all we have, the moments that remain are priceless and full of potential.
Hi, I'm Brian!
I help former believers navigate their deconversion with clarity and purpose so they can get on with creating a life of vitality and meaning beyond belief.
I'll be Your Guide
About 15 years ago, I began my own deconversion journey, like many others, alone. Up until that point, I existed within a religious context that permeated every area of my life and shaped my reality.
I still remember the waves of conflicting emotions as my beliefs began to crumble under the weight of evidence — the heart-wrenching realization that not only had I suffered needlessly, but with my religious zeal I had unknowingly inflicted harm on others.
It wasn't until years later in graduate school that I finally discovered a framework for understanding my deconversion. It was the first of many aha moments I experienced in my clinical training as I began to adapt evidence-based practices to the process of deconversion.
More discoveries followed as I did my own work in therapy, connected with "post-theist" communities, and met my own guide who helped me clarify my personal values and create a plan for living a meaningful life.
Now, drawing from my professional experience, my personal journey, and the collective wisdom of fellow travelers, I guide others through the deconversion process.
Imagine Life Beyond Belief
With newfound clarity, you’ll begin to conceptualize new possibilities and explore new ways of being human.
With a deeper understanding of the deconversion process, you’ll be more confident as you embrace your personal freedom.
With a clear plan for moving through your deconversion in a healthy way, you’ll be more at ease within your experience.
With new humanity-affirming concepts, you’ll be less stuck in old unworkable stories that define and restrict you.
With support from an experienced and knowledgeable guide, you’ll skillfully move through obstacles and get on with living your life.

I have been working with Brian for the past 3 years to build supportive community around those who are going through faith transition and deconversion. Brian is everything you'd ever want in a therapist or coach: a qualified professional with an open heart and an attentive listener, with a passion to help people live into the challenges they face and become more fully themselves. He's done this for me and he can do it for you, too!

"Working with Brian has helped me develop more useful ways to be with the difficult feelings around my leaving the Christian faith and the complex emotions I have toward believers. This new way of being with my experience has led to improved relationships with people I deeply care about.
What’s the difference between a guide/coach and a licensed therapist?
There are many similarities and differences between coaching and therapy. In short, coaching tends to focus on the future and helping individuals reach their goals. Professional therapy cares about future goals, too, however, therapy focuses more on the emotional suffering and distress that limits an individual’s ability to function and take steps toward their goals.
How do I know if I need a therapist or a guide/coach?
As a licensed clinician, I can help you determine what modality best meets your needs. If professional therapy is a better fit for you now, I’m happy to help you connect with a licensed clinician. Some individuals find it helpful to work with a clinician and a coach with each service complementing the other. I’m happy to explore your options with you.
What qualifies you to do this work?
My approach is informed by working with religious-based trauma as a clinician, guiding individuals through deconversions as a coach, adapting and applying evidence-based principles to this process, and years of personal work as part of my own deconversion.
Will this help me sort out theological questions and truth claims?
Not necessarily. It’s common to begin your deconversion as an intellectual pursuit of the truth. As you may know, countless books and resources are devoted to this quest. While this intellectual process can be incredibly valuable, there are equally important emotional and social processes that often go unexplored — processes with real-world impacts.
To be sure, our work together will account for the intellectual piece of your deconversion, but we will expand the focus to a more comprehensive context and explore the broader human experience inside of a deconversion.
What if I’m not interested in “deconverting” from religion completely?
Our work together will focus on creating a context where you can connect more deeply with your personal values and move towards the life YOU want. I’m here to create a context where you can clarify your personal values and feel confident choosing your own path, not to convince you of one “right path.”
The majority of individuals I work with are making the difficult transition from fundamentalist forms of religion to a life beyond religion and supernatural beliefs altogether.
Some individuals have transitioned from various forms of religion to a version of spirituality that works for them.
While not as common, it’s possible to go through a deconversion process and arrive back where you started but with a clearer sense of your own agency, a deeper connection to your personal values, and more psychological flexibility.
Why are you doing this work?
A few reasons:
1 - Despite how common it’s become, there’s still a lot of stigma surrounding non-belief and leaving religion continues to be a painful and difficult life transitions for many.
2 - Individuals who make it through the intellectual process of deconversion often remain stuck inside of the question, “now what?”
3 - Private online groups are an amazing place to share your experience and receive peer support, yet, in so many of these courageous stories the heroes remain stuck in a struggle to overcome what feel like insurmountable obstacles.
4 - I’m intimately familiar with this feeling, and I spent years of my life suffering in this stuck place — validated, supported, encouraged…and still stuck.
I'm passionate about equipping individuals for a healthy deconversion and I would be honored to be your guide!
