Hey there! My name is Rhys, but you can call me Ray if you'd like--I have no preference. I'm a trained active listener, specializing in anxiety and LGBTQ+ issues, both of which I have personal experience in. Whether I'm online or off, you are always welcome to send me a message or start a chat! Below, I'm going to go into detail about my experiences to help you better understand how I can help you and if I'm the right listener for you, but if you are in any way going to be affected by mentions of negativity, please do not force yourself to read them! All you really need to know is I'm here to help lift your spirits and set you on the path to loving yourself!

I've struggled with internalized homophobia and transphobia for the majority of my childhood, and occasionally still have bouts with it today. Because of lack of support from my family, I delved into depression very quickly, and struggled with basic tasks, such as sleeping, eating, and getting out of bed. My anxiety mostly stemmed from having to constantly travel with my mother to help her, emotionally and physically, with renovating properties and houses.

I specialize in anxiety and LGBTQ+ struggles. I have not listed depression as a specialty because, while it has been the issue I've had for the longest time, it is a sensitive topic for me and I'm not entirely comfortable with it just yet.
