Licensed Peer Supporter
"Meet everyone where they are at”…I am here to encourage you and to help you build up an arsenal of tools to use to help cope with any of a number of challenges you may be facing. Mostly, I am here to LISTEN and if asked, provide any feedback related to my own personal experience.
My name is Taamer and I am an Organization Trained and a Licensed Peer Support Specialist. I started this journey a couple years ago by attending peer support groups through Project Return Peer Support Network (PRPSN) when I was struggling with grief and anger at becoming the only parent to my (then) 12 year old daughter, who lost her mother to cancer. Struggling to find resources, I came across an organization Project Return Peer Support Network (PRPSN) and their support groups through which I found support from others with shared lived experience, which really resonated with me. I would eventually apply for and complete the (PRPSN) training and internship program to become an Organizational trained (and now a Licensed) Peer Support Specialist through the State of California.
