Certified Peer Supporter
Hello all, Angel here. Eager to aid you along the way. With passion in a judgement free safe zone.
Hello all. My name is Angel. I am absolutely grateful to be in recovery and able to aid others along their journey. I am a mother of two, and work diligently to provide my children a childhood free from a suffering mother. In my humble opinion substance use disorder and mental health conditions are best served with a mind, body and spirit approach. I believe that ensuring that all social and emotional needs should be met in order to garner the best outcomes. I not only focus on what brought you here, but what can be done to better your circumstances as a whole, housing, food insecurity, employment, socialization etc. I am a Certified Peer Support, as well have a degree in Human Services, while completing my Psychology and Social Work degree with a concentration in Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder. As an individual who suffered and is in recovery for cooccurring substance uses and mental health I strive to meet each person where they are and grow with them.
My Recovery StoryOn recovery for 10+ years. With a degree in Human Services, currently full time student. Experienced in in-person peer support as well as 10 years of medical career experience.
My Motivation To HelpI grew up in addiction and untimely followed the same path. Once I had my first child I knew I had to make a change. I sought help, and I was granted an abundance of support.
