Life Afer Dogma Coaching Program: Are you questioning your religion in isolation or suffering from spiritual abuse? Did you leave a religion years ago, but still suffer from religious fear, depression, PTSD, fear of hell, isolation from family, or issues with your sexuality? Do you have a hard time finding a new sense of purpose and long to have profound experiences of spirituality?
Have you already tried to find help but have not connected with someone who really gets it? Many of my clients have spent years or decades trying to chip away at their religious indoctrination and trauma through books, podcasts, and even therapy with someone who isn’t trained in religious trauma. These are GREAT, but there’s nothing like individualized help dedicated to your needs from a specialist.
There is hope. Instead of spending years spinning your wheels suffering needlessly, you can speed up this process and get your life back together. Healing is possible, and you can rediscover a beautiful and profound spirituality that works for you, whether that looks like spirituality without religion, humanism, or a healthier form of religion–without the baggage. My clients see major breakthroughs and even total remission from the fear of hell, community isolation, sexual issues, reclaiming their power, and more in just a few sessions, after carrying these for years. I am confident you can create the freedom you crave.

“When I began working with Andrew, I was devastated by a dream living situation and job opportunity that had fallen apart. Because this crisis happened simultaneously with one of the greatest spiritual awakenings of my life, I was overwhelmed, confused, and in emotional turmoil. Part of me felt like I was going to be stuck with this forever. Andrew skillfully navigated me through difficult mental and emotional terrain with a calm and steady presence. With his help, I was able to see into fresh territory in this domain that had plagued me, including how my traumas, childhood history, and past religious background played into my present situation. After a few sessions of working with Andrew, I had experienced a big shift. I was able to transform my painful situation into a stepping stone for becoming a greater version of myself. I learned to ground and integrate my spiritual experiences. Now, my life is quite strikingly different. I developed my own Entrepreneurial brand based on extracting the gems from that challenging situation and I’m now making a living doing what I love.” – Jonathan
“Before working with Andrew, I was struggling with ongoing worry about the future, eternity, and what my life without religion would look like. During the Life After Dogma Program, I was able to face my fears, understand the root of my trauma and ways of healing. After taking his program, I have been able to discover myself and determine the life I want to live. This has been one of the most spiritually exciting breakthroughs for me. Beforehand, I carried subtle but ongoing feelings of guilt and anxiety. Now I have the tools to cope with those fears and live each day with gratitude and excitement. If I could share one piece of advice for other people with similar experiences – it would be to embrace this journey and be excited for what you will learn about yourself. Growing and healing is something to be celebrated, not feared.” – Jamie
“Before working with Andrew, I was married and a stay at home wife and my husband went behind my back and filed for separation, I thought I was briefly at my parents to let him cool off, but instead, I had no choice but to deal with the fact that my husband didn’t love me anymore and he didn’t want me home anymore. I was thrown out of the nest and I realized I forgot about-ME. Before that, I was also coming out of religion during my marriage to my husband for 4 years we met at a supernatural Christian ministry school and I had dropped out of it prior to my marriage and was curious about a life without religion but was very afraid because I was “born again” since the age of 21 and had a crazy cool experience and threw myself into the church I started with the Assemblies of God. I was left with no car, no job, no dog, no money. I was really afraid because the traditional values I had, actually went against me completely. Emotionally I was traumatized because my husband said I was basically a demon and he spoke in tongues at me before he kicked me out, I was feeling like God hated me and it was all my fault. I was also really afraid of hell and being separated and about to be divorced, how could God let this happen to me, especially during a deadly scary pandemic? It was scary to even think of doing this program, I had NO money and Andrew assured me that I would be able to work through my blocks to finding work.
During the Life after Dogma program, Andrew made me feel safe emotionally, spiritually and gave me faith in my finances. I was able to find an affordable apartment within 2 months, I acquired things I needed for it and got 2 jobs fairly quickly after not working for 2 years during my marriage and it was nice that during the crazy, hectic work schedule I had, not be able to process my spirituality and really look at my thinking. I found a spirituality that worked for ME, God lives IN me and it’s ok to love and accept myself for who I am. I also was able to accept what happened in my marriage and that it was not my fault but a lot of it was wrong thinking and mind-sets/beliefs that were damaging. Today, my mind is open, I feel a freedom in my spirituality no longer afraid of God and hell, also working on not trying to please everyone and its OK to have flaws, and being brave enough to face my FEAR and make it into my FRIEND that benefits me I still have a lot of work to do, but I am much more hopeful than when I started. I think one key thing is to not let fear hinder you from getting the help you need. Fear is a good thing and it helped me grow so much to create the positive changes I needed to make for myself. I think what contributed to my success also was meeting with Andrew every week consistently and putting in the spiritual work during my free time, also remembering his words “don’t judge yourself, don’t be so hard on yourself.” Andrew is a great life coach because he is kind, and is a very good listener, and not pushy about things you need to do, but tells you to “get curious” instead, which I found extremely helpful.” – Nicole
