Hi there, I am married and have two kids. I have personal experience with depression, anxiety, and parenting a child with autism. However, I am comfortable discussing a wide range of topics so feel free to leave me a message and we can schedule a time to chat. I am LGBTQ+ friendly.
I do scheduled chats for 45 minutes with the option for a 15 minute follow up chat at a later date, if necessary. However, at this time I am not taking repeat/long term chats. If you require a long term listener then I can help you to find one who is able to work with you.
Also, I prefer not to take chats on Eating Disorders or medical issues.
Please note: I get many PMs every day so sometimes it takes me a couple days to reply. Thanks for your patience.
My status: Online: I am online and available to take a chat. Busy: I am busy with chats or projects on the site. You can leave me a message and I will respond when I can. I may or may not respond before I log off. Offline: I am not presently online or I am busy with projects/chats. You can leave a message and I will get back to you at my earliest convenience.
My roles here:
Quality Ambassador | Chatroom Mentor | Group Support Moderator | Depression Support Team | Anonymous Evaluations Team | Verified Listener Team | Grading & Feedback for Active Listening training | Peer Support
She hears. She really hears.
Very patient, she let me say everything I wanted and was with me through it all.
Asked me a simple question, shared her story and it was exactly what I needed. She heard me. Thank you.
Wow! Thank you for taking the time out to talk, when I most needed someone. Understood what I was saying and made me feel so comfortable and supported talking about it. Can't recommend enough to talk to this listener if you get the chance
I just loved how she felt with the my problem without taking things personal and made me feel so much better.. god bless her :)
so lovely and caring, listens but does not push and give you advices that you don’t agree with.
Thank you so much for taking time to listen to me
Went out of her way to provide urgently-needed, non-judgmental support and listen very patiently.
Youre very nice and comprehensive, thank you
Thank you for your time. I felt like talking to you helped me feel better.
She is the sweetest person one can ever meet.. Her experiences are inspiring... Personally , she saved me. I can never thank her enough..
Choosing this listener is something you won't regret. Very patient, understanding and compassionate. I highly recommend :)
Extremely helpful and patient.
She was an amazing listener for my first time it was good
Cat is so empathetic and kind. She knows just what to say and how to say it. Like talking to an old friend.
Words don't really exist for how much I value our time. I feel blessed by the attentiveness compassion and kindness. I feel such a sense safety when we talk and a sense of peace when we finish. Thank you isn't strong enough.
This Listener maintains a very High and consistent level which can be difficult given that we are all human. She is one of the most impressive and helpful people that I have spoken to on here.
The listener really helped me understand what I am going through and I felt relieved after chatting with him/her. His/her support made a real difference. Thanks!

She is wonderful and kind person. patiently listened to my problem and sincerely tried to help me feel better. Keep up the great work
Probably the most "together" listener I've found here. Makes you feel welcome immediately. Patient, observant and objective.
Very good listener settled my mind and gave me some helpful information. Will plan to keep contact with polarcat about my progress.
Polar cat is a very understanding and honest person. A good listener.
Awesome! I was not at all made to feel put down and she always knew what to say. I loved her style and approach.

Nice, good listener.
Very kind and compassionate. Thank you.
I feel like I was brought out of the darkness just by talking to her. I feel much lighter and more motivated to set things right. Thank you so much. :)
She was very helpful and she didn't judge. She asked me questions and helped me find away to get more help. She was very sweet. And i'm glad someone was there to listen.
CAT was wonderfully empathetic in our first session and gave me the confidence to seize my life, albeit in small steps. so wonderfully caring and communicative.
Very kind and compassionate. I feel much better after talking to them.
Good guy in a bad world
Non Judgmental. Understanding and very helpful.

Amazing person all round :)
i love this site! thank you!
open and kind. cat really is a genuine person who wants to help, and if she can sit and listen to my rantings, I'm pretty sure she can listen to anyone.
Extremely helpful, made me feel like I was talking to a close friend rather than just a computer :) Would definitely recommend a chat when they are available!
Wonderful listener. She was very kind, compassionate, and attentive. Thank you for being kind and accepting.
Really really helpful I feel so much better now
Cat was very helpful and empathic. I left the conversation feeling like I took away lots of good feedback I can use to better myself. Very good listener.
