Hi, my name is Ocean. I'm in my 40s, single, and have 2 cats I love dearly. I enjoy psychology, spirituality, art, writing and thunderstorms. I have experience with depression, anxiety, dissociation and self-harm. I also understand what it feels like to be a highly sensitive person (or HSP). I won't be the best listener if you need to talk about any sexually related issues, childhood trauma, romantic relationships or parenting. For those issues, please go to the Browse Listeners option. Otherwise please feel free to leave me a message.
