Often, when things get super stressful, we have to remind ourselves to push pause and, "breathe." What's more, when we are trying to find ourselves grounded we will often practice the skill of "deep breathing." Life can get complicated and sometimes we need a little help focusing on that breath.
Suspire was born out of a vision to support the mental health of all of "us" and our communities without a cookie cutter approach. Helping us to take the time to "breathe" in ways that are meaningful and relevant to our diverse and specific needs.
Too often when looking at mental health and awareness, we end up re-stigmatizing the very same that we hope to help.
Suspire takes individuals and their needs, while addressing them, and creates opportunity for purpose, intention, discipline, awareness and community.
Hi, I am Jeigh (jay)!
I am the founder and creator of SUSPIRE.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified School Social Worker. I am also trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy. I started as an Emergency Medical Technician in Southern California and have found a love for people, health, and mental health across this nation. I have spent my career thus far learning, developing and educating groups and systems to approach care through a trauma informed lens. I work with groups and train in a large macro scale, lead community events with a mental health emphasis, and provide individual therapy.
I started SUSPIRE in hopes to support people (especially BIPOC & LGBTQIA+) in finding "the right fit" in mental health help and DESTIGMATIZED care. It is growing, and I hope to turn this practice into something synonymous with relevant and relatable mental healthcare for the 21st Century.
I invite you to grow with me and SUSPIRE as we transform from a private practice to a recognized voice in mental health care.
...& In my spare time, I enjoy gardening, hiking, listening to and making music, and spending time with friends in nature...and lot's of Bob's Burgers.
I look forward to serving you!
