TAMMY CROMWELL

RECOVERY SUPPORT SPECIALIST

 I have worked at Call for Help for almost 4 years, using my past experiences with mental health to support others. I am passionate about helping people achieve sobriety from drugs and alcohol, and become productive members of society.

I am trained as a WRAP facilitator, lead NA and AA meetings, am working on becoming a state-licensed Recovery Support Specialist, and have a bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice and Criminology with a minor in Psychology.

My counseling style is to get to know each client and share my personal experiences with them. I have "walked through it."

 

An interesting fact about me: I carried the 1984 Olympic Torch in Los Angeles. I also am an animal lover -- I have a dog, Bentley, and 2 cats, Samson and Delilah.

DEANNA KELSAY

RECOVERY SUPPORT SPECIALIST

I have been working and volunteering for Call For Help for the past 6 years, using my past experiences with mental health to support others and help them find themselves. I believe "Difficult Roads often leads to Beautiful destinations."

I am a Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) Facilitator and have been a Depression Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) facilitator for over a decade. I have training in Mental Health First Aid, ASIST, Emotional CPR (eCPR), First Responder-Autism, and I am working on becoming a State-Licensed Recovery Support Specialist. I have 2 years of college in the medical field and am a Licensed Cosmetologist/Nail Tech. 

My counseling style is to listen, give hope to individuals, provide tools and resources, and provide support in a non-judgmental environment.

An interesting fact about me is I play on an all-women billiards league and a coed billiards league. I love all music/live bands and working out. I have a pet parakeet named Razzberry.
