About the host
Hello, I'm Jenn J. (she/they), and I'm honored to introduce myself as a Peer Recovery Support Specialist. My personal journey has woven together diverse threads of experience, shaping my passion for guiding others along their paths of healing. As a neurodivergent individual and a proud member of the LGBTQIA2S+ community, I've navigated the complexities of these identities, fostering a deep understanding of the challenges they bring. My life journey has been marked by a multitude of experiences, including living with chronic illness and chronic pain, navigating disability, coping with mental health challenges, recovery from substance use, surviving domestic violence, overcoming an eating disorder, healing from childhood trauma, facing self-injury, and processing grief.
Motivation for help
My motivation to help is deeply personal, born from my own journey of navigating challenges like disabilities, chronic pain, mental health struggles, substance use, eating disorders, and trauma. These experiences have given me profound insights, driving my desire to be a guiding light for others on their paths to recovery and transformation. I firmly believe in the power of mutual support and shared experiences, and I aspire to offer a steadfast presence, professional expertise, and a commitment to helping others flourish in their unique stories.

She did a good job. I felt safe by the end. Even though I was not openly sharing and just listening. Thank you.

I always feel better just being around Jenn. She has a beautiful aura about her. I feel more peaceful in her groups. Naturally-occurring calmness. It makes for easy sharing.

Adam is good but needs to let the members of the group talk even more than he did at the end. He talked a little too much either bc he was nervous or some such but he is a skillful facilitator.
