Hello! I'm glad you've found me on 7 Cups of Tea. I'm a trained active listener and I like to support people struggling with traumatic incidents, caring for an ill/injured/handicapped loved one, and stress at work/school. My newest endeavors include those struggling with family issues as well as always open to support those in the military, their families, and any first responders.
I'm the father of two boys and work as a Paramedic and 911 Dispatcher. While not working or being a father I enjoy writing, spending time with family/friends and serving my community as a volunteer.
I've overcome a lot in life and would like to help by listening to you. If I'm online, then please feel free to start a chat. If I'm offline, then send me a message and we can set up a time to connect. Glad you are here!
Stephen is a genuinely caring guy who actually let me talk and get everything out there. He did not judge me when I was scared, but listened when I needed it.
Incredibly good listener. Really was able to listen to and ask good, caring questions about a topic he has no real knowledge or experience in. I found the chat very very useful and would highly recommend chatting with Stephen!
