She is very much pro-therapy. It’s the eager jump to medication that she argues is a problem.

If mental illness doesn't exist though, what would the therapy be for?

For abuse, general unhappiness. I had therapy that just gave me a different experience, being treated like a human instead of a thing, clarifying things, overall re-parenting, but with caring and respect for me as an individual, even though I wasn't mentally ill.
