Find Meaning, Build Purpose

Religious Trauma

Struggles with Identity


You are not broken. 

Move past indoctrination into self-acceptance.

Together we explore ethics, build healthy relationships, and discover what it means to be you.

Get the Support You Need

Your past does not have to define you. Break free from the chains of ideology that told you that meaning and purpose, ethics, and doing good only come from an authority. You get to define what matters to you. 

Why Choose Coaching

You are More than a Diagnosis

Therapy, especially insurance, requires pathologizing normal human responses to difficulty through a diagnosis. You’re not definable by a single label, and your future shouldn’t be either. 

Talking with Someone Who’s Been There

I’m on this journey, too, and I know what it’s like to doubt every thought and feel disgusted by myself because of the dogma and authority figures. I’m here to tell you that, yes, it can and does get better.

Personalized Attention for Your Whole Self

Relationships, finding and developing meaning/purpose, exploring ethics. There is no single thought, emotion, or action that defines all of you or should be used to judge the whole of who you are.

Empowering You, Not Providing a Guru

I am actively seeking, through teaching psychological principles, that you take ownership of your own life and rely on me less and less.

"And if there were a God, I think it very unlikely that He would have such an uneasy vanity as to be offended by those who doubt His existence." - Bertrand Russell

Values Are at the Center of Your Humanity

“Values are the triggers that inspire us to action, both in outward behavior and inner emotional responses. To effect change in our lives, we want to align behavior to the Value we want to serve.”

Say Goodbye to Shame and the Fear of Doubt.

About David Teachout

I lived and found purpose/meaning within religious fundamentalism for half my life. Questions and a deep love of our shared humanity brought me out of it, yet I am aware that the scars and old ideas still exist. With twenty years of mental health experience, I hope to help you on your journey of identifying your Values, actively take ownership of your Story, and gain a greater flexibility in your Behavior.
