Hi, I'm El and my pronouns are they/them. 

IMPORTANT NOTE: I am unable to schedule time with members due to unpredictable chronic health issues. I can offer 2 possibilities for both ongoing and one-time support. 1) Chatting more like email where I may sometimes get back to you quickly and it sometimes might take a couple days. 2) If my status is sent to online, you can ask me about a live conversation, I may have availablity and capacity for that in that moment. You can of course use both options. If you want to explore how I can support you or how I can help you find the support you deserve, send me a message and I'll get back to you when I can!

I honestly love very little more than being there for people. I have had various career paths and volunteer positions focused on supporting people as they move through this bizarre experience of life and strive to grow into the people they want to be. I have also gone through all kinds of stuff myself and with loved ones. I've been in therapy for nearly two decades now and believe really deeply in the importance of having a safe space to talk about what's going on (though of course I'm not a therapist!). Whether what you're dealing with feels tiny or enormous or somewhere in between, I'd love to be here for you in this moment of your journey if you'd like to connect!

Other things I love include collaborative board games, binge-watching TV shows, being outdoors, hanging out with children, writing, listening to music, and being silly with friends. And, of course, elephants.

Note for other listeners: I am always happy to connect about listener related stuff or to just connect as fellow listeners--for that you're more than welcome to message me from your listener account. I am also happy to listen and support you with your personal stuff, but if you're wanting to reach out about personal stuff, go ahead and toggle over to your member account and message me from there. I toggle over to my member account when I need it too--it doesn't make you less of a listener, just means you're a whole and complex human like the rest of us!

nice lady who listened, was kind and responsive
Beautiful person. Made me sincere goddamnit. Was real chilled out and could tell when some parts of the conversation weren’t vibing, very adaptable and got an awesome mind. Really, just a cool person, even if they are a California hippie. Thank you.
I don't think you need any more improvement... Just maintain this awesome way of dealing people that you do!
