Hello! I'm glad you've found me on 7 Cups of Tea. I'm a trained active listener and I have professional experience as an MSW providing emotional support to others. I have the most experience working with grief, aging, and caregivers to older adults. Additionally, I have personal and professional experience with chronic health conditions and chronic pain. I am well versed in topics related to having a chronic condition including how to sleep better, communicate better with doctors and loved ones, and setting individual goals for leading a healthier lifestyle even with barriers a chronic condition presents. I also have training in motivational interviewing and would very much enjoy talking to persons looking to make lifestyle and dietary changes using this theraputic technique. 

I believe it is such a gift to provide someone your undivided attention and listen to their concerns in an non-judgmental and open manner. I am happy to be able to provide that here. 

Please be aware that I am only able to provide one hour sessions for 7 cups users at this time. I also do not take more than one chat at a time. When I am with someone I prefer to give them my undivided attention.

If you self-harm, have an eating disorder or have a family member suffering from either of these I am not well versed in these topics and I would advise you to speak with another listener, if available. I feel that I'm not able to best support you as I lack the experience and knowledge about these topics. 

I'm so glad you are here and I look forward to speaking with you.

Good advice
TaraJean is professional, empathetic, and is great at reflecting. I felt heard and genuinely cared about when I was going through a difficult time. Thanks TaraJean!
Thanks for taking the time to talk to me and listen to my problem. It really helped to have someone listen who is outside of the situation.

Thank you for all you do.
