Peer Support Specialist
Ray Ruben is a trans-masculine, non-binary peer support who prefers They/Them/Theirs pronouns. Ray received their B.A. in Psychology from Rutgers University. Ray has lived through their own journey figuring out their sexuality, gender and transitioning both socially and medically. They use this experience to assist gay, trans, non-binary, and gender non-conforming people in exploring their identities and navigating life as a person in the LGBTQ community. As peer support, they provide encouragement, advice, emotional help, and mentorship. They offer guidance in areas such as “coming out” to friends and family, gender transition, coping with gender dysphoria, navigating relationships while transitioning, advocating for one’s identity and needs, and exploring gender and sexuality for those that are questioning their identity.
Peer Support workers are people who have been successful in the recovery process and help others experiencing similar situations. Peer support services can effectively extend the reach of treatment beyond the clinical setting into the everyday environment of those seeking a successful, sustained recovery process. Peer Supports are intended to be a supplementary form of support; in addition to clinical counseling.
