Just when the caterpillar thought life was over it became a butterfly!

Hello & welcome! I'm here to listen to your story and give you some emotional support. I'm a daughter, sister, wife and mom who loves to travel, hike and dance. My background includes real life experiences, an extensive career and academic history. I overcame my battle with anxiety and depression by acknowledging that I needed help, letting go of the stress factors, adjusting to a healthy lifestyle and going to counseling.

I'm really passionate about what I do here so I became a Verified Listener, Peer Support, Group Mod and Mentor. To better serve this community I completed the 7 Cups Internship in March 2016.
Don't forget to love yourself despite the circumstances

It was a struggle for me to get it out, but she immediately knew right away, and helped me so much. I can't thank her enough-to know someone who understands exactly what you're feeling and going through is such a relief. I can't wait to talk to her again soon.
Thank you Joy for listening and caring. I had issues she was able to relate and made me feel better. I'm glad I found a nice person to talk to in my time of need. She's amazing!
She's amazing and undoubtedly one of the best. Willing to listen objectively and had a lot of patience. Has a lot of knowledge and understands my situation, Definitely a keeper!
