Through my training as a certified Emotional CPR practitioner, and as a Mad and neurodivergent person, I provide non-coercive, neurodivergence affirming, disability affirming, and LGBTQ affirming peer support. Some of the topics that I address in my coaching services include:
Coping with sanism, ableism, queer-antagonism, transphobia, and other forms of marginalization
Healing from abusive or negative experiences with the mental health system, such as involuntary commitment and coercive care
Embracing your Mad, neurodivergent, and/or disabled identity in a sanist, ableist society
Navigating dating, relationships, the workplace, and school as a Mad or neurodivergent person
I am also working toward a Certificate in Substance Abuse and Addiction Counseling. I am happy to provide substance use or addiction coaching, including alternative approaches such as harm reduction.
Coaching can be conducted virtually or in person.
I provide training and consultancy on a variety of topics, including:
Coercive care and involuntary commitment
Context-informed and trauma-informed care
I am also a certified trainer in Emotional CPR, a non-coercive, non-pathologizing approach to assisting others through emotional crises. I can provide a one-hour introductory training or a full two-day training.
Additionally, I have a background in creative writing and provide training on how to most effectively share your personal mental health story.
