Meet Your Peer Coaches
Ellen is a mental health activist committed to educating and reducing the stigma around mental health and BFRBs. Having trichotillomania for 30+ years and a child with BFRBs, she cares deeply about her work and the community she serves. When she is not helping others find positive change with Keen, Ellen enjoys Barre classes and really good coffee.
Aneela struggled with trichotillomania for 20+ years before she realized that she could turn her pain into her purpose, and started the HabitAware company. She's using the same strategies she teaches you to help her own young son with lip picking. Aneela is excited to help others like her change their life with the power of the BFRB Collective, HabitAware’s behavior change methodology, and their award winning Keen/Keen2 bracelet.
Mari is a graphic designer who aims to make positive change through her work. She struggled with dermatillomania for 10 years before starting work at HabitAware. She is happy to support the BFRB community, spread awareness, and lend her skills to create resources.
