About Jess

Biography

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 Story

I 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.

Greetings

Hi, 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 Help

I 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.
