I have 6 years experience working in a Forensic Treatment Facility and a State Hospital. I have been a facilitator for Support Groups Central. for 4 years. My personal challenges with mental health issues allow me to provide recovery skills in a variety of ways including individual peer coaching, online and in-person support group meetings, and providing Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) training.

My Recovery Story

My quality of life is dramatically different today than it was 15 years ago. I have utilized many wellness tools along the way and had the support of some wonderful people. I could not have done this alone and am grateful for all I have experienced in my life.

My Motivation To Help

Peer support has been instrumental in my own recovery. I think I was born an advocate and have always been the type of person who desires to help others. Now with peer support I can help others going through struggles similar to my own.
