“Daring greatly means the courage to be vulnerable. It means to show up and be seen. To ask for what you need. To talk about how you’re feeling. To have the hard conversations.”
— Brené Brown

Being vulnerable is tough. Asking for help is scary. Having the courage to show up and be seen can be terrifying. But here you are... doing it, and daring greatly. I just want to say I'm so proud of your bravery. I'm Bryce, a 23-year-old from Mississippi, located in the United States. I'm a Communication graduate, an advocate, and a poet.  I'm also a black, queer preacher's kid who suffers with depression and anxiety. I'm empathetic and compassionate because I've been through a lot of pain and suffering. I've also been to various types of therapy and group counseling. My job is not to solve your problems, but to help you help yourself to solve them. I promise to always be open-minded and listen with compassion and be non-judgemental. I'm also not going to be a robot. My approach is friendly, yet realistic. My schedule is flexible, so feel free to send me a message at any time and I'll return your message as soon as I can. Let's get you started on a journey to healing.

The best.
Journey2Healing was my first conversation and while he didnt need to say much, he did a wonderful job listening and not just listening but listening in a way that encouraged me to keep talking. I have greatly appreciated my time spent here and thanks to Journey2Healing i feel that i understand where my emotions are coming from now and he even gave me resources to address and begin mending my confidence. Big thanks to J2H and this app, ill certainly be back and recommend to others.
Thank you much you have no idea ho which you have helped m
J2H was kind, patient, helpful and modest. We did not talk about much that required an empathic response, but I could tell that he is gentle and warm.
