Listener Rating     
Welcome to 7 Cups of Tea. I am a certified peer/family support specialist in the state of California, as well as a certified life coach. I'm an experienced mentor, and a long time Buddhist practitioner. These diverse models have all contributed to my growth, and I believe have made me a better Active Listener.

We are living through very difficult and challenging times. Some of us were struggling with life before, some of us are finding the world harder than ever. Whatever you are dealing with, I hope we can make a connection, and I hope you feel better after we chat, even if a little.
