I'm a peer advocate and supporter who has experienced some pretty intense life challenges including addiction, childhood adversities, heart surgery, psychiatric hospitalizations and more. Learning different ways that help me navigate these has been both interesting and hard. I try to come from a space of hope, how do we find and hold on to it when things become difficult.
I'm a member of Intervoice and Hearing Voices USA, trained by Ron Coleman, Rai Waddingham and Kevin Healey. I am also a member of the Copeland Center, an Advanced Level WRAP facilitator and a have New York State Peer Certification.
I love chocolate :)
I'm looking forward to this new direction peer support and meeting all of you!
