Diana B.

State Certified Peer Supporter

Accepting New Connections

Hi everyone, I'm happy you've found your way here, it takes a lot of guts/courage/bravery to look for ways to make life better and those steps aren't easy to take. Give yourself a moment to look around, ask questions, check out the groups and peer supporter profiles, see what's a good fit for you. If you would like to schedule a 1:1 please reach out through the chat feature or email me at Wilowispaperio@yahoo.com to figure out a time, I have more flexibility than what shows on this platform :)

Willing to help others find local resources

About Diana Babcock


Seven years stumbling around within the psychiatric system, starting in my early forties, I didn't understand the impact childhood wounds and experiences had in my life. I kept everything deeply within myself, it caused the pain to become unbearable and I experienced my first hospitalization right before 9/11. I also lost two of my children to state child services. It was a really difficult time. The re-building of my life started with peer support. Learning there were people who got it, that I wasn't alone, gave me something to start with. Professionally, I've worked in homeless shelters, state psychiatric hospitals, dual recovery, assisted living, court systems, addiction residences. I'm a Certified Peer Specialist, WRAP facilitator and Advanced level WRAP facilitator. I've been with the organization that developed Hey Peers for over seven years, worked in peer support fourteen years. I practice Reiki and am a Reiki Master Level III healer. I'm also a photographer, writer and lover of the outdoors :)


My Recovery Story

Life journeys, so unique! Mine is kind of like a patchwork quilt, a piece from here, a piece from there, some pieces have extra meaning, every piece has value, even the most difficult ones. Each day I spend time using skills I've learned. All of me is important, physical, emotional, spiritual. I do things that help me live with hope and gratitude, that help me stay away from self-judgment and criticism. Marshall Rosenberg's Non-Violent Communication helps me to be gentle and compassionate with myself.

My Motivation To Help

I came to the understanding "They no longer have power over me", there was a shift within that helped me to show up for myself. A very large part of my motivation to be here is that I didn't know peer support existed during the darker times of my life. Feeling alone when struggling with things can be really difficult. Having support that understands and also comes from a space of hope has been a valuable part of my own wellness.
