Certified Peer Supporter
This will be a safe space, stigma and judge free environment for those living with mental health disorders who may need non-clinical 1:1 coaching/support. Together this is OUR space, and here you will find support, education, hope, healing, mental wellness and a path to recovery.
I am a Mental Health professional, speaker, advocate, educator and crisis counselor. I am a Certified Georgia State Peer Specialist for Mental Health. I am currently pursuing my degree in Psychology to become a licensed Therapist. I am a DBSA Certified Facilitator for the Atlanta Metro Chapter (Depression Bipolar Support Alliance), a Peer-to-Peer teacher and IOOV Presenter for NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness). I am a Georgia Peer Policy Collective who works with other collectives and legislatives to raise awareness, advocate and lift mental health policy changes in the state of Georgia. Additionally, I have completed certifications and trainings in the following: Life Coaching, Trauma Informed Care for Clinical Providers, Preventing Suicide in Emergency Departments, Substance Use and Trauma, and Trauma Informed Care for Individuals with IDD. Please note, although I am a certified peer specialist, mental health professional and psychology student; I am not presently a licensed Therapist nor Psychiatrist and encourage all to continue with those services in addition to the support I offer.
