Born into a life of control & coercion, you battle childhood trauma every day
You're stuck grieving the life that was never yours to begin with
You try to talk to friends, family and therapists, but they just don’t get it. (Or worse they even traumatize you, making you feel responsible or pathetic.) Everyone’s advice buries you deeper into your trauma and shame. And you don’t know how to climb out.
You look put together but really it’s your perfectionism trying to mask the pain inside–deep down you feel utterly broken and invisible.

Like The Handmaid’s Tale with a Hollywood ending—about a girl who comes of age in the biggest cult you’ve never heard of.
“From the opening pages, Church Heidi vs real Heidi grabs you and takes you on an incredible journey filled with tragedy, love and loss – all seen through the eyes of a young, helpless girl and told with startling honesty and clarity. What eventually emerges is the Brave Heidi, the Survivor Heidi whose renewed voice tells us her story with dark yet humor-filled pathos.”

I know what it’s like to leave a cult when it’s all you’ve ever known
I did everything to appear normal, but inside I didn’t feel seen or known. When I was eighteen, I left BCC—a fundamentalist religious group. Once I began to understand and share my past, I started to love myself—a huge deal for a cult kid.
I embarked on a journey of rewriting my story—my way. Today, my life feels right, and I feel truly and wholly connected and confident.
Yours can too with the help of my resources dedicated to growth and healing for cult kids and those who experienced trauma by narcissistic abuse.
