JAZMIERA SMOTHERS

My name is Jazmiera Smothers and I am now 23 years old! In 2010 I had attended Red Bank Regional which is where I also graduated from in 2014. During my 4 years at RBR I was suffering with an illness, but I was unaware. I met this lady named Mrs. Staci Liss who continuously told me that I was not okay, but she was very patient with me and allowed me to figure it out on my own. I met Mrs. Liss in “The Source” which became my second home. The illness that I suffered from is known as “Bipolar Depression” and being that I suffered with it, The Source and Mrs. Liss’s office were my safe place. After finally getting diagnosed and treated for my illness this past year, I have now begun my journey of chasing my dreams! I am a Self-Published Author, a Motivational Speaker, and an Entrepreneur as well. Along with all of those great things I also manage to be a great mother each day to my 2-year-old little boy! Thank you to The Source for changing my life and thank you to Mrs. Liss for being my shining light on this journey! Check out The Source guys, and never feel as if you’re alone again!


ASHLEY MARINACCIO

I used The Source throughout my four years at Red Bank Regional High School. As a highschooler, The Source was my safe space. Having access to therapy at a young age helped me learn how to handle and understand my emotions by providing me with problem-solving techniques. In addition to this, The Source provided me with a community of students who were thinking about and working through some of the same issues that I was at the time. It was through the work I did with Stacy Liss that I was able to understand myself and the world around me. Stacy helped me to develop into a strong and empowered adult. The impact of the work we did together is still felt in everything I do from managing career choices to balancing interpersonal relationships. It is truly through therapy that I have been able to thrive in the competitive industries of performing arts and academia. Stacy and the entire staff at The Source are doing life-saving work. I am proud to still be in touch with Stacy and The Source to this day.
