Listener Rating
5.0 star rating

I'm a genuinley curious person who loves to learn about others. I am a natural born listener and I received my Psychology (BA) degree in college. Nothing pleases me more than to listen to you about... well anything. If I can make even a small difference by being there for you, it gives my life more meaning. Come talk to me and find out how much I care about what you are going through.

Sam is great. He is a very caring listener, he asks the right questions, and is very comfortable to talk with. It is just like talking with someone I have known all my life. Thanks.
We talked for an hour or so, and you gave me your undivided attention. You actually listened, you actually responded, all the while being true to your oath as a Listener. Not many can say they've done it. So many aspire to do it. And you executed the deed with near perfection. I am in awe. Thank you Sam from the bottom of my healing heart -Crys
So helpful. Such a great intro to this site. I was provided with insight and given resources outside of the site for additional support.
