Certified Peer Supporter

Accepting New Connections

Welcome y'all! I am excited to learn and grow with those of you who feel called to share and build connections. Amongst our world today I see separation as the root sickness that continues to invade our layers of connection, community, and identity. I am here, as a peer, wanting to hold space for exploration and interconnection. I have lived wisdom with mental health, substance use, neurodivergence, queerness, and childhood/complex trauma. Let's start building consent-based containers that hold conversations allowing nuance to be present, along with wellness and skillful boundary setting.

About Aubree Sentkowski

Biography

Hi! My name is Aubree (they/them) & I am a silly, non-binary queer who is neurodivergent and openly talks about living with complex PTSD. I am a peer support mental health specialist and equity informed mediator. I currently reside on the unceded territory of the Awaswas-speaking Uypi Tribe also known as Santa Cruz CA. I have a background in social work (BSW) but have divested my energy from traditional educational institutions and put my focus around community care/peer-support modes of co-weaving with communities to support wellness. I believe healing, wellness, and recovery are non-linear journeys and would love to make mental health support accessible for those who continue to hit access barriers. Some of my lenses: animism, healing-centered engagement, disability justice, healing/transformative justice, survivor-centered, trauma stewardship, non-mastery/skill-building, anti-oppression, somatic/embodiment. The work I do in the world is inspired and informed by the work of Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour, who have always been at the forefront of queer and disability activism, transformative justice, prison abolition, and healing justice.

My Recovery Story

I am a survivor of SA (sexual assault) and a person who is recovering from ED (eating disorder). I've been institutionalized and thrown into different systems throughout my life. I've worked in social services, along with other case management/resource navigation positions throughout the last 5 years and have experience navigating the sludge. I have my ups and downs but am here wanting to continue doing the work and love to share my story and be with others in theirs.

My Motivation To Help

What motivates me is aliveness, curiosity, & embodiment. Being in relationship to, is a powerful positionality, that can heal and transforms our way of expanding into the unknown.
