Accepting New Connections

About Diana


A bit about me: Professional: Certified Peer Specialist (8+ years), WRAP© facilitator (11+) Advanced Level WRAP© facilitator (6 years) Support Group Central Lead Facilitator (4+ years) 1 to 1 facilitator (4+ years) Dual Recovery Peer Specialist Adult Peer Specialist My lived experience includes: Addiction (including Hepatitis C diagnosis and Interferon treatment) Mental Health diagnoses Childhood trauma and neglect Anxiety, PTSD Adoption as a young child Parenting Domestic Violence and much much more... Personal: I'm a great listener and always keep it real as possible! How do we find and hold on to hope in a practical and useful sense when things become difficult and while being true to who we are as unique individuals? In remembering the times when I had no hope, life was dealing some pretty hard challenges, it was good to have those who supported me while I figured things out. Because of this I found my voice and learned to say "I know me best". Favorite quote: "Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can" ~ Arthur Ashe Really personal stuff: I love horses, my camera and fair trade chocolate :)
