Some of us swim through life quite well.... until a tsunami life wave comes along, tosses us about, while others have lived in rough seas for a long while.

I write to reflect on aspects of my life experiences that fall outside the norm so that I may heal and come to a truer reality and understanding of self. I do this to be a strong professional presence for the people I work with, to positively impact the local mental health system, and to promote my work.
My first book is a memoir called: Fighting For Freedom In America; my second will be about a theoretical orientation towards work with “psychosis” across diagnostic divides.

Intentional Peer Support is a way of thinking about and inviting transformative relationships. Practitioners learn to use relationships to see things from new angles, develop greater awareness of personal and relational patterns, and support and challenge each other in trying new things.
Intentional Peer Support was developed in the 1990s. Since then, thousands of people in various countries around the world have been trained in the material. Our operations are managed by the following team, who also provide and coordinate trainings.
