Certified Peer Supporter
Accepting New Connections
Willing to help others find local resources
I am a 52-year-old male with a wealth of life experience. I am a graduate of Purchase College in New York, and have worked for some of the top music entertainment and book publishing companies in the world as a graphic designer. I am also a world-traveled musician with extensive touring experience. In the last few years, I have turned to peer work as a new direction, though I continue to make art and music. I hold certifications as a peer specialist as well as a yoga and meditation instructor.
5 years ago, I had my first psychotic ‘break’, leading to 5 psychiatric hospitalizations. Medication and a PROS program for assistance with getting my life back on track.
Whether you want to do a little yoga or meditation (all levels welcome), learn some computer skills, talk about your challenges and successes, discuss music and art or whatever comes to mind, I’d be happy to offer you my services. I am an LGBTQIA community member and have experience with substance abuse. I am very approachable and easy to talk with. I am an excellent listener and collaborate with people to come up with creative solutions.
My Motivation To Help
I have been a ‘mentor’ to many people over the course of my life and find using my lived experience to be life-affirming and wish to share it with as many as possible.
