Hi there, I'm AJ but you can call me vinyl, viny or fly. Welcome to my listener profile. Glad you're here with us on 7 cups. smiley
 

I'm a verified active listener. I'm happy to support you on your journey and help you navigate the bumps in the road you may come across. I've driven over many myself and have acquired much wisdom and compassion along the way. Message me if you're looking for a caring, wise and open-minded set of ears.



I'm passionate about helping people in need and am currently pursuing a Bachelor's degree with a major in Psychology and minor in Sociology. I've spent most of my career working with youth with special needs and have recently been spending much of my time volunteering with a local peer-based harm reduction group.



I'm happy to chat about whatever's on your mind but I have the most knowledge in the areas of anxiety and panic attacks, drug/alcohol use and harm reduction, autism, ADHD, chronic illnesses and disabilities, coping with strong emotions, sexual orientation and gender identity, and post-traumatic stress.


 
Please note that I take 1-1 chats in 1 hour time blocks. I do this to make sure that everyone has a chance to be listened to. I'll let you know when there are 10 minutes remaining in your chat so it's easier to start wrapping things up.



Looking forward to hearing from all you lovely people. It takes a lot of courage to reach out for help when you need it. Through our struggles, we can learn how to harness our strengths heart
