Julia KrumpLicensed Clinical Social Worker, LCSW
My clients’ survivor-oriented instincts led them out of their past religious environment, but now they find that life with religious trauma is overwhelming. My clients are grappling with feelings of confusion or shame about their identity. Their inner critic is raging. They suffer from perfectionism and are definitely exhausted from people-pleasing. They experience shame about their sexuality. Often, lifelong relationships are fracturing. These are some of the effects of religious trauma.
