Please note: My schedule can be quite varied. There will be days I am away completely and days that I will be around quite frequently. It's always OK to send me an offline message, but my response time may vary somewhat. We can also schedule specific chat times through offline messages. If I am set to 'busy,' I may still be able to live chat during that time, just on a slight delay. I'd still absolutely love to hear from you & will still be here! Thank you for your understanding and if you do not mind someone with an unpredictable schedule, we can definitely work! I encourage you to find other listeners under the 'browse listeners' tab if you need to speak with someone with a more stable schedule, however. Thank you again for understanding!

Greetings! I'm a trained active listener on 7 Cups of Tea and I am genuinely glad you are here in this moment, thinking of reaching out. I have found a great deal of support on this website myself, and I hope you do, too. I have an activist background, particularly within the LGBTQ community. I'm a queer/gay cisgendered female myself, and I've also done a great deal of work in queer theory/gender theory. Please know if you are LGBTQ+ that you are coming to a safe place by chatting with me!

In addition to supporting those within the LGBTQ community (especially with issues such as coming out, bullying, sexuality/identity, etc); I also have special interests in supporting those struggling with anxiety, panic attacks, PTSD, agoraphobia (and specific phobias), depression, disordered eating, social anxieties and loneliness. I also understand chronic pain very well. However, if you need to discuss extreme physical health issues and/or urgent care situations with your family members: these are the sole areas I am not the best with and would encourage you to find another listener that is, as I want you to get the best support possible!

I know what it feels like to not be able to say certain things out loud--how sometimes they can even be hard to write out--and I am here for you through that. I also know what it's like to need someone outside of your situation to help validate and make sense of your feelings with you, and I would be honored to be side-by-side with you in that journey. So if I'm online, then please feel free to start a chat. If I'm offline, then send me a message and we can set up a time to connect or write to each other through the offline messaging system here! :)

And so you can get to know a bit about me as well, some of my favorite things: performing arts, theater, video games, films, reading, photography, art/art history, TV, music, and city life!

A really good and empathetic listener.
Thank you. :D
She's very sweet and empathetic. Chelsea I hope you can be my friend and may both of us kick ass of our life's trouble. Hugs :)
A really wonderful friend to me, who is caring, patient and so kind. Thank you
Kindness, understanding, care, and knowledge... These are just a few qualities that this magnificent human being exhibits. I am forever in her debt.
Thank you.
Life changing! What began as two strangers chatting on a virtual platform, has blossomed into me getting to know her more and more each time we talk. This place maybe virtual in nature, but the relationships and the care/knowledge and guidance this listener gives is 150% real. She can walk in my shoes, talk the way I do and understand me the way no one has ever before. My life has had a lot of downs, and ChaiChelsea has been one of the greatest up's for me! She is amazing and has a kind heart and a pure/gen
Really took the time out to understand me and my situation. An amazing person!
ChaiChelsea was very helpful she helped me through my anxiety and i hope to talk to her again in the future!
People like this make the world a better place :)
Wow, ChaiChelsea was the best listener I have talked to so far on the site! She was extremely insightful, and very attentive to my conversation.

Thank you so much!!
By far the best listener I've ever had. Thoughtful, caring and quick; I can tell she is genuinely here for me.
Knew many of the same things I was feeling, helped me see things not as erratically as I had been. Really hope we connect again. :)

Amazing. Very thoughtful and empathetic. Asked exactly the right questions to spur a soul soothing burst of introspection. I really appreciated the conversation.
I really appreciate how you empathize with me and pointed out positive steps I was taking.
I am so glad God has lead me to this place to get time to chat with out bugging one of my friends or family
