Peer to peer support, training, and advocacy at the intersections of spirituality, justice, and healing.
What I Do
I offer a variety of trainings for workplaces, congregations, and communities wanting to be more welcoming of people with trauma histories. Topics include creating trauma-informed spaces, supporting people in crisis, and how to effectively integrate spirituality and mental health support.
I regularly consult on program design, curriculum development, and best practices for peer to peer support. I have direct experience developing and operating a peer run crisis respite led by and for people with mental health, trauma, and substance use histories.
I draw on my work in grassroots activism to advocate for the rights of people with psychiatric histories. As a psychiatric survivor, my lived experience gives a necessary perspective on policies and laws that directly impacts people’s rights and dignity in the psychiatric system.
