Welcome to Peers Unmuted
AAPI Healing - Family Style
Purpose of AAPI Healing
AAPI Healing - Family Style is a drop-in peer-to-peer healing circle for folks who are of Asian descent including, but not limited to Asians, Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, multi-racial/ethnic, and Desi Americans.
How Does AAPI Healing Work?
This space is for community members to connect with their peers, share their experiences, as well as build collective support from others going through similar circumstances related to the AAPI experience. Topics will be determined as a collective during the first session and topics can range from anything relevant to the community such as cultural stressors, wellness, intersectional identities, family and relationships, systems of oppression (e.g., racism, model minority myth), stress management, and more.
AAPI Healing starts on Wednesday, May 4th and will run weekly each Wednesday from 7-8 PM EST on Zoom
Each meeting has a peer facilitator, who helps guide meetings and foster a safe space for mutual sharing and connection
Meetings are one hour long

Meet Your Facilitator
Jennifer Tarm, AAPI Healing Facilitator (She/They)
Hi There! I'm Jennifer (she/they), I am a:
Second-generation Asian American (Chinese-Vietnamese diaspora)
And the eldest daughter of immigrant parents
I'm an associate marriage and family therapist and a psychologist-in-training pursuing a doctorate (PsyD) in counseling psychology. The healing philosophies that I hold are informed by having a systemic perspective, liberation psychology, and a relational-cultural lens. I enjoy surrounding my work around addressing BIPOC mental health, identity development, sense of belonging, power-based violence, teasing out the nitty gritties of cultural nuance, and empowering individuals’ “main character” energy.
My personal mental health journey is centered around my experiences of navigating the “in-between” of being an Asian American through the work of exploring belongingness in two contrasting cultures and figuring out how to come home to my own personal belongingness of self. I believe that mental health is nurtured through and is a reflection of collective healing therefore, my healing approaches aim to promote community-oriented care.
Some fun facts about me are 1) I am a tea enthusiast (matcha and jasmine tea are my favorites, but Genmai has been pretty trendy for me lately), 2) I am a proud lefty (left-handed), and 3) I love watching K-dramas and anime.
Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your healing journey and together, let us create more peace, integration, and rest. I am humbled and look forward to being in community with you soon.
