About Chrissy Peirsol

Biography

I am currently employed as a peer support specialist and has been for about a decade. I was Oregon’s first Youth Peer support Specialist. I have also been volunteering in my community for over ten years for all different types of people that struggle with challenges. I am well connected with other organizations, resource in the community and around the world. I also participates on different committees and advocacy councils around Oregon state. I am great at building social and independency skills. I works in strengths and recovery based support model. I am uber positive and will point out when I see you grow and notice your strengths. I am also great to work with for big life goals. We can eliminate barriers and gain the skills you need to be successful. I draw experience from a ruff childhood, being over medicated as a teenager, and the compounded struggles to reach a stable young adulthood. I started volunteering as a young kid to find healthy and safe attention with positive reinforcement that I couldn't get from my home. Being a youth activist, I attended every training and community event I could. I feel in some ways my activism/volunteer work has not only given me a free education but also filled in so many of the emotional intelligence deficits I had from trauma. Now, over decade later with my years of experience I use my energy to advocate for consumer survivor rights.

Recovery Story

It still impresses me to think of the old me vrs. the new me. I have grown my emotional intelligence. In the last 7 years I have reduced my negative thoughts. In this last season I have once again smashed my own self limiting preconceived notions and started to run. This is going to be a roller coaster of a year I have big growth potential and feel emotionally ready to push my self to succeed. I hope to do the same for you.
