The role of a peer resilience specialist is to support a client in pursuing their own goals. While a person classified as a counselor or a therapist might diagnose addictive behavior and prescribe treatment, this is not our focus. Instead, we will offer someone the tools and guidance needed to follow the path they’ve already chosen to walk in freedom and break the chains of crisis in their lives.

What is peer support?
A peer support specialist is a person with “lived experience” who has been trained to support those who struggle with mental health, psychological trauma, or substance use. Their personal experience of these challenges provide peer support specialists with expertise that professional training cannot replicate
