Traumatic Religion: Signs You Are In A Cult

Religious groupTraumatic religion is what I call groups that abuse religious members.

What do you know about satanic ritual abuse?

Have you ever heard of it?

In this video, I explore the topic (only touching the surface) and explain a few signs you may be in a dangerous and traumatic religious cult.

There is also often a strong correlation of suicide to dangerous and traumatic religious cults. In fact, research suggests that suicide-contagion may be associated with a cult-like mindset.

In 1974 a religious sect group was formed by Marshall Applewhite and Bonnie Nettles. Heaven’s Gate was a religious cult based out of San Diego, California and included about 39 members. The group’s “mission” was to identify UFO’s and engage in extreme self-reunification which resulted in castration.

The group existed under a variety of names over the years as if it wanted to hide and escape ever being truly found out. The only notoriety the group received was after the 39 members committed suicide in a suburban area of San Diego in March of 1997. News reports and studies that include the history of this group report that both Applewhite and Nettles believed they were the witnesses mentioned in the book of Revelations (Revelations chapter 11) in the Bible.

Scary case! To read further on this story get my book (in the video).


As always, I wish you well

*CORONA VIRUS UPDATE1050 Lincoln Way, Ste 1 - Pittsburgh PA

As we get closer to the middle of May states across the nation are passing laws, reducing restrictions, and enacting new regulations to help support the transition from stay-at-home orders to the normal flow of life again.

Unfortunately, Gov. Wolf hasn't reduced the mask wearing restrictions in Allegheny County. However, he has announced most of Western PA will be moving to the yellow phase beginning May 15. This means that we can slowly regain some normalcy.

But until the mask wearing restrictions are reduced or eliminated Anchored Child & Family Counseling will remain closed. I will be making small transitions back to the office over the course of summer and seeing some clients in-person based on need.The office will be open starting June 17, 2020 with the goal of remaining open until/if state laws change in response to Corona virus restrictions.

In the meantime, I will be continuing teletherapy sessions until mid-June. My office assistant and I will be monitoring your insurance policy to ensure that you will be covered for teletherapy and that your copayments will be waived. At this time, it appears that all major insurance companies (UPMC, Highmark, Aetna, Optum/United, and Cigna) are continuing to provide coverage for teletherapy.

Please continue to stay safe!
Thank you
