About this meeting
You are not alone. Times are changing and uncertain. The stress from the current situation and changing needs of parenting can be challenging. Join us at an upcoming support group. Learn from your facilitator on how you can ease the stress caused by challenging situations and from parents like you who are going through similar situations. You will receive real life tips and strategies. You will leave feeling connected and not alone and hopefully learn how to approach your own situation.

About the host
Seven years stumbling around within the psychiatric system, starting in my early forties, I didn't understand the impact childhood wounds and experiences had in my life. I kept everything deeply within myself, it caused the pain to become unbearable and I experienced my first hospitalization right before 9/11. I also lost two of my children to state child services. It was a really difficult time. The re-building of my life started with peer support. Learning there were people who got it, that I wasn't alone, gave me something to start with. Professionally, I've worked in homeless shelters, state psychiatric hospitals, dual recovery, assisted living, court systems, addiction residences. I'm a Certified Peer Specialist, WRAP facilitator and Advanced level WRAP facilitator. I've been with the organization that developed Hey Peers for over seven years, worked in peer support fourteen years. I practice Reiki and am a Reiki Master Level III healer. I'm also a photographer, writer and lover of the outdoors :)
Motivation for help
I came to the understanding "They no longer have power over me", there was a shift within that helped me to show up for myself. A very large part of my motivation to be here is that I didn't know peer support existed during the darker times of my life. Feeling alone when struggling with things can be really difficult. Having support that understands and also comes from a space of hope has been a valuable part of my own wellness.
