Listener Rating     

I am here to listen to you, however, I am mostly listening to long term members and working on other projects. I have three teenagers and I work full time as an elementary school counselor so I am not always available to listen. I currently do not take too many chats. I do not take chats of a sexual nature. Please leave me a message and I will get back to you when I am available.

Very validating.
A true angel! Wow.. I'm amazed at her potential to change a life for the better! Thank you
One word- fantastic. I truly felt the listener cared and was very helpful.
truly an amazing listener :)
Not only a great listener, but great at figuring things out that even I didn't realize about myself. Very kind, very understanding. It's easy to tell when someone is listening, and she definitely listened.
You really helped me!

Was very kind and willing to listen. Had a lot of good advice. Glad to have chosen Angel as my listener.
it was a really useful conversation it helped me understand some mess i had on my head and to plan some stuff to help it
She has been incredible helpful and caring. She's worked hard to find resources and send them to me while supporting me. She's really makes sure I take care of myself
Honestly, Angel was amazing. We talked and I felt that we really connected. We have similar personalities and careers so she could understand me on multiple levels. And while many of my issues were ones that were hard to provide answers for, she was a great sounding board so that I could filter through my emotions on my own.
Very great listener! Couldn't ask for anyone better . 10/10
Dreamangel69 is simply wonderful. I needed to vent and didn't expect anything beyond that, but she offered options that may actually resolve the situation I was upset about. She helps me to clarify my thinking by listening, and she asks questions that help me to think about the issue in a new way, one that leads somewhere. I am grateful that listeners like her are here.
great listener
She's the best, I can say anything more than that. She deserves so many beautiful things in this life. I can't thank you enough.
Very helpful and understanding. A great listener.
She is amazing! Great listener!
So much compassion and wisdom!
Dream angel was incredibly supportive. She asked good questions, and helped me make a couple realizations that had been just outside the edges of my conscious mind. I feel lighter after talking with her, and I highly recommend her as a listener. She is an exceptional example of what 7 cups has to offer. ❤️
Super nice, very helpful, lovely to talk too. I'm glad to have made the right choice when picking someone to listen to me.
