I currently have limited availability, but I will respond to requests as able!

Hello! I am a 25 year old healthcare worker who has dealt with a variety of mental health issues (depression, anxiety, insomnia, and an eating disorder). I also have an extensive trauma background that provides me a unique perspective. I have learned to manage my conditions through therapy, medication, exercise, and healthy friendships. I'd love to chat with you about anything you'd like to share!
Things I do on 7 Cups:

Chatrooom Mentor --  Quality Mentor -- Teen Quality Mentor -- Verified Listener Team -- Peer Support 

And yes, my profile picture is me! I used to be a professional dancer and that's a shot of me lying down on stage during rehearsal.

Theyre rly nice and helpful and they listen 2 me
Dancing is quite honestly one of the best listeners I've had. It's obvious that she understands me and wants to help.
Talking to Dancy was great! I started the conversation feeling like I was going to lose control, and ended the conversation feeling much more calm. Thank you so much for your support and allowing me to talk out my stress and anxiety!
She actually let me talk about why I was upset and didn't try to coddle me or make me feel false better or try to get me off the subject. It was nice being supported for once. Thank you, Dancy. Heart
For once I felt heard and like I wasn't crazy or alone
Dancy is helpful, professional, empathetic, and responds in good time. Dancy is the listener 7 cups needs but not the one it deserves..... batman joke... shes the best okay? :)
Dancy is fun. I like fun. Fun makes me a happy member.
Thanks for helping me
DancingAlong was very kind today. She asked appropriate questions. She allowed me to talk without interrupting. She knows how to summarize well and asks me if she's got it right. I appreciate Dancing's good listening skills.

The listener was very attentive and gave good advice
Cannot say enough good things about DancingAlong! She is one of the kindest, most supportive and non judgmental listeners I have come across on 7 cups. Responds quickly and is professional while still making you feel like you're talking with a close friend. Asks good questions and seems to truly care about her members. So grateful to have found her on this site.
I think that the listener was very helpful and attentive to my situation
She was really supportive and understanding. Quick to respond and actually took the time to help me pick through my situation
DancingAlong continues to be one of the most dedicated, professional, and caring listeners on 7 Cups. She has been a lifesaver for me in many ways, and I am eternally grateful for her patient support.
Shes really awesome
DancingAlong is nice and helpful.
I feel she is a great listener because she was attentive to my issues and she really gave me some good suggestions.
The best listener i have ever talk to.Helped me out with the problem i was having.
Very soothing!
Very kind and caring. Really listens to you and understands your perspective on things, while also giving their own perspective. Also very accepting and encouraging! One of the best listeners I've ever had!
DancingAlong is a wonderful listener! She is incredibly kind and supportive, and also very professional, which is much appreciated. She has great insight and is very reassuring. I would highly recommend her.
i absolutely love madeline , shes been there for me through tough times
We had a very good "introduction" type chat. Dancing helped me by "just talking" - I mean, even though we didn't talk about what I was all very concerned and anxious and worried about in the hour before our talk, I feel more relaxed and composed now after our talk.
DancingAlong was incredibly helpful. They made me feel listened to, and help me make small goals in order to feel a little bit better day-to-day. DancingAlong is probably the best listener I've spoken to on this site so far.
This person was very kind and helpful! Never once sounded condescending and instead offered helpful tips :) I feel so much better after talking to him/her.
very kind, gave me a lot of their time and didn't make me feel judged for anything i vented about
Very helpful and patient.
She asked all the right questions and it was extremely helpful to have found someone on here who was ably to help me this way. Thank you DancingAlong!!!
really kind and helpful
Fantastic and so understanding. Made me feel safer and calmer
DancingAlong is a patient listener and knowledgeable in my profession; a rarity. I appreciate her kind attention.
Very understanding and helpful. Highly recommend!
Thank you for your support!
Quite possibly the best listener on 7 Cups. DancingAlong truly went above and beyond to help me quell my anxiety. I am infinitely grateful for her patient support.
The best listener I have talked to
really helped me..
DancingAlong was very helpful and quick to response. I will defiantly talk with DancingAlong again.
Was a great help. Listened to everything I wanted to say never made me feel rushed or stupid. And commented at the right times with the right words. All in all a great listening experience
Not to good with words but will say He/She was very willing and able to help me in a polite mannered way with my conundrum.
What a thoroughly lovely listener. She was quick to respond, quick to understand the issue, completely focused on ensuring I was comfortable with any decisions or courses of action. Just great, thank you.
She is quite intelligent and down to earth. She did a commendable job at listening to me. Thank you so much for listening. Keep up the good work!
