Certified Peer Supporter
I believe that everyone deserves unconditional love. That is my starting point. Beyond that, having shared experiences makes life fulfilling and manageable. I feel that the best way to help others is to empower their own autonomy. I am a certified peer support specialist through DBSA. I currently work as a caregiver for a man with Alzheimer's Disease. I love learning and continual self-improvement. In my free time I enjoy practicing the saxophone, piano, singing, and the Italian language. I am always looking for ways to grow and improve.
Recovery StoryI have had several bouts of depression with suicidality, and a couple bouts of mania in my life. Through much work, I am now stable, healthy, and have control over my moods.
GreetingsHi, I'm Jess and I live with bipolar depression. I am here to support you in the best way possible by listening deeply to you and sharing my story of struggle and success when appropriate.
My Motivation To HelpI have suffered deeply for many years with my mood disorder. If I can help one person to suffer less by listening, supporting, and sharing our struggle together, I will be content.
