Welcome

Not Your Usual Therapy

The No Drivel Zone is where you can access mental health resources and support with honesty and clarity – no nonsense. Mental health is not made into an illness bigger than the person. Your strengths, supports, and culture are respected.

My specialties include trauma recovery, resilience, cultural respect and humility, and severe/persistent mental illnesses (schizophrenia, autism, PTSD). I also help with attachment issues, depression, anxiety, and grief. Feel free to drop me a line via the contact page. I have experience working in a mental health clubhouse, supporting members with severe and persistent mental illnesses, providing group therapy in an outpatient hospital program, with international psychology, focusing on trauma recovery, refugee challenges, cultural relations, and supporting a non-government agency working with young adolescent girls. My strengths include active listening, respect for others, kindness, and compassion.

I favor therapy methods which enable clients to improve their lives and gain mastery over challenges. Often this will be a mixture of evidence-supported therapy methods, with a focus on what is beneficial for each client.
