Hello! I'm glad you've found me on 7 Cups of Tea. I'm a trained active listener and I like to support people struggling with Depression, LGBTQIA issues, Alcoholism, Sexual Abuse/Domestic Violence, Self Harm and Traumatic events as well anything else you would like to talk about. I enjoy hiking, camping, reading and working with dogs. I've overcome a lot in life and would like to help by listening to you. If I'm online, then please feel free to start a chat. If I'm offline, then send me a message I tend to respond sooner rather than later, but certainly within 24 hours or at the latest 48 hours. I am here to help and will do what I can.

My background is in past works with domestic violence, sexual abuse, facilitator for teen glbtqia+ groups, advocate for victims in the courts and with the police. I am a teacher by trade and therapeutic riding instructor as a volunteer. I train dogs for service to create art and volunteer at a rape crisis center and love to be here to help anyone who asks!

As the Ravens are warriors and in the strength of Wolves, I hope to talk to you soon! Be well!!

Everything you could want in a listener
I am a transgender youth and Aedan was a very good listener, since he is also trans he was able to give very good advice. I felt comfortable to just vent and talk about stuff, he's understanding and have me many resources, for example how to get a binder. I would recommend Aedan as a listener to transgender people and any member of the LGBTQIA community. I feel everyone can benefit from having a chat with Aedan.

Very helpful and understanding. He will try everything he can to make you feel better and will talk to you like a friend. Very friendly and I strongly recommend to anyone who feels out of place in the world.
Aedan has spent a lot of time listening to me over the past week or so. I felt like he truly listened to me and cares for me. He has given me some sound advice and I feel, from him listening to me - so much better about myself and my situation. I would highly recommend chatting with Aedan - there's no better listener in my opinion.
Good Listener. Good Person.
Thank you very much. Just, thank you !

He helped me alot
Talking to Aedan was really nice. Sometimes all a person needs is someone to talk to who's willing to listen and even just try to objectively come up with solutions. He did both and he empathized with my situation a little as well. It was really nice.
Helpful and resourceful. Hoping to talk again.
