Sheila Hall-Prioleau


M.A., Administration of Human Services

I am a Certified Peer Specialist (CPS), Forensic Peer Specialist, and an advanced level WRAP facilitator.  I have trained many people on the topics of trauma, recovery from addiction, and supporting CPS in the workforce. I am an advocate for people with the lived experience of hearing voices. I believe that people can recover from anything.  HOPE is one of my favorite words. I have been successful in my own recovery because I live by the principles I impart to others.
