Certified Peer Supporter
Hello friends... those that understand where I have been because you have or are going through the same things. I invite you to join in the power of being able to speak with others without judgement by meeting you where you are in the recovery process from substance use or mental health challenges. You are not alone and there is support!
Struggling? I’ve been there! I am Lori and have lived with Bi-Polar II, anxiety and panic attacks, depression and PTSD from trauma and toxic relationships most of my adult life. I received my certification from UNC-Charlotte in Peer Support in 2014. However, I have been listening to others and sharing my own experiences most of my life. I have rebuilt my life several times and explored the question of “who am I” and “why am and I here” multiple times through life.
My Recovery StoryMy experiences in life have led me down many roads. Those roads taught me about loving myself, setting boundaries and valuing my own life to bring a new calm to my world,
My Motivation To HelpPeer Support saved my life. I have been successful in the recovery process and want to help others experiencing similar situations through understanding, respect, and empowerment.
