Amber Coss Gelwicks (She, They)
Certified Peer Supporter
Hi! I am so looking forward to getting to know you and exploring a supportive connection. In my peer conversations we often share about hopes, fears, anxiety, depression, harm reduction, how we can best support ourselves and potential available resources. I also enjoy exploring spirituality, holistic health, meditation, music, art, family connections, gender, advocacy, human rights, herbalism, astrology, scientific and philosophical deep dives, pets, love, grief and loss, poetry, horses, life. My services are donation based and on a sliding scale.
I'm a Certified Peer Support Specialist active in a peer role since 2013 both within and outside of the mental health system. I am dedicated to practicing true peer support, advocacy, compassionate listening and mutuality in a safe, supportive, non-judgmental environment. My life experience confirms a belief that we are the masters and experts of our own wellness and that we can and do heal from trauma, grief and societal harm and that connection to each other and the natural world can heal.
My Recovery StoryThrough healing, transformation and self awareness I have created a life of meaning and purpose today and I am able to share that with my peers through support and connection.
My Motivation To HelpI am motivated by a great desire to relieve suffering and to provide real human connection for people who are experiencing isolation and challenges in this difficult time.
