Welcome, welcome, and thank you for being hereYour first step onto the bridge of compassion is reaching out, and I will meet you halfway. I'm a mature, disabled stay-at-home mom of six. I've been very blessed to be able to work for crisis hotlines, support groups, and I currently lead a coloring therapy club. As a Buddhist, I am inspired by Kwan Yin. Her name means "Regarder of the Cries of the World" and she listens to all the people, to ease their suffering. My life experience includes domestic violence, PTSD, single parenting, chronic pain, and disability - though I am happy to listen to any concerns you have. I promise to do my best to listen compassionately, and my hope is to ease your suffering. My goal as a Listener is to help guide you to your own inner wisdom.

If I cannot be reached, it means I am taking a brief leave due to health, parenting or disability issues. Please excuse my absence, and keep looking for Listeners! 7 Cups is a wonderful place full of compassion and healing. You are SO brave for reaching out!
