Certified Peer Supporter

Accepting New Connections

Hello! I struggled for a long time with many mental health challenges, but now I am doing well. I would like to support peers on their own journeys towards mental wellness, whatever that looks like for you all!

Recovery Story

Learning skills, like those in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, gratitude, medication, art, and peer support all help me live the life I desire. I am manifesting my best life!

My Motivation To Help

The last time I was hospitalized in a mental hospital, I was supported more by my peers than by the staff. Now, I want to give that support back to other peers.
