Individual & Group Peer Support
As a trained Peer Supporter I currently offer both individual and group peer support in community.
If you or someone you know is currently struggling with a mental health challenge, or the mental health challenge of a loved one, please feel welcome to reach out about what Peer Support can look like.
Peer support is created through a trusting, equal and empowering recovery-oriented relationship between two individuals who share a similar experience. With the belief that human connection can serve as one of the most powerful tools in recovery and healing, this support service also embodies a mutual understanding of expectations, self-empowerment, self-awareness and accountability. With an emphasis on active listening and intuitive guidance, together we will create a safe space for you to explore vulnerability as the first step to exploring you holistic recovery and inspiring hope. Grounded in self-determination, hope for future, and a holistic approach to wellness, my intention is to support you, peer to peer, from a place of understanding and free from judgement, as together we will navigate your individual journey of healing. Peer support is not about focusing on the illness or disability, but instead works with your ability to make conscious choices about how you choose to better your whole health and mental wellness.
Recovery can be made up of a variety of different tools that speak to each of us as individuals. Think of Peer Support as another tool you can utilize on your path of recovery; it’s here to support you in whatever way you need. I ask that you recognize your own strength and courage at this time; reaching out is often one of the most difficult steps. Be proud of this major accomplishment you’ve achieved today! Take comfort in knowing that reaching out for Peer Support means that the person you are connecting with can relate and is here to empower you towards your own journey.
Our time together will be used as you feel you need it. It is time solely dedicated to you and your needs that day. Support will be tailored to you based on your needs for healing. Some examples of offerings available through Peer Support can include but are not limited to:
Individual Peer to Peer Confidential Support
