Hi there! Glad you found me on 7 Cups of Tea. I like supporting folks dealing with trauma, depression, anxiety, and issues related to gender, sexuality, and LGBTQIA identity. I am trans. kink, and poly-positive and generally feel comfortable talking about most topics related to sex, sexuality, sexual expression, and romantic/sexual/play relationships. I take a feminist/queer/social justice approach to listening which includes acknowledging the systems of power and dominance that exist in our world and the ways in which these systems shape the experiences and feelings of marginalized people. I am also invested in supporting LGBTQIA+ folks of faith and feel comfortable having conversations about spirituality, religion, practice and other aspects of faith. 

Important Information about me as a listener:
Please note that I limit one-on-one chats to 30 minutes. Beyond 30 minutes, I will transfer you to another listener or encourage you seek out support group chats to explore your thoughts further. Please note that I reserve the right to end the conversation for any reason and without explaination. 

I do not endorse weight-loss (WL) inspo or endorse weight-loss as a tool of health-promotion. The WL industry is hamful and focused on profit-making. I do not offer weight-loss support in conversation and will recommend a transfer if this is the primary topic of concern. I do support caring for bodies holistically and within the context of other issues (i.e.: class, gender, sexuality).

I am fat-positive and understand "fat" as a political and reclaimed term in recognition that bodies are heavily policed and regulated in the wider culture. I do not tolerate fatphobia, misogyny, homophobia, xenophobia, transphobia, classism, racism in conversation. I reserve the right to end the listening conversation at any time.
