Hello my name is Anna and I am a twenty-two year old biology healthcare and neuroscience student in Wisconsin. I am getting my degree in genetic counseling. I have always been a listener to those in need and I hope to continue to be so for the rest of my life. I have experience with anxiety and depression as well as other mental illnesses. In addition I am a trained sexual assault victim advocate and human trafficking advocate. I know first hand what it's like to live with anxiety and panic attacks. I know life isn't always easy and I want to be there to walk in your shoes if even for a short time. You'll never walk alone.
"'Cause if there's one thing in life, that I've learned so far, It's that we're all a little stronger than we think we are. And you can bend a little farther, or you can stay just how you are." - 'Who You Are' Paradise Fears
Although I am unable to be online all the time feel free to send me a message and we can set up a time to talk! I look forward to chatting with you!
New job at work has me traveling more, plus life events mean that I'll be away a bit more over time. I'll still try to respond to messages if possible, but will be unavailable for live chats and more delayed in responses from:
- July 11-14
- July 19-28
Otherwise, my normal availability will stand - I can schedule one hour live chat appointments Monday-Thursday during the day (10am-6pm Eastern) and will try to respond to messages within 24-48 hours, with slightly slower times on weekends as I do not typically log in here Friday-Sunday much.
Hi all, I'm glad you've found my profile here! I truly love to listen and help others, and am particularly versed in eating disorders, work stress, and sexual assault, though happy to discuss anything, including sexual issues / sexuality. If you feel like you could use some extra support or help working through a problem, please reach out!
You can start a chat with me if I'm online or to message me if I'm not and we can set up a time. I'm in the US in Central Time and somewhat flexible during the day Monday-Thursday. I'm hard to catch sometimes, so plan to set up an appointment with me. I'm also open to messaging back and forth not live, but more frequently, if that's preferable for you.
If you see me in the forums, you'll know I have a few favorite quotes around recovery and strength that I throw around all the time, so I'll share them here, too.
"You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think"
"Never forget you are worth more than the value you place on yourself."
"Every day might not be a good day but there is good in every day."
Much love to all,
- Note: I am less active on the weekends, I apoligize. -
Hello and welcome to 7Cups. It's so nice to meet you. I'm AstronomySkies, one of many active listeners here. You can call me AstronomySkies, Astro, Astronomy, or Skies, any of these are fine by me.

Everyone has their own battles that we must find a way to overcome, but that doesn't mean we have to go through it alone. We can lend a hand or an ear to help out others through their situations, or ask for help in our own.

I created my first account on 7Cups as a member in 2015, but that one has since been lost. My current member account has been around since 2017 and it took me a while to decide I wanted to become a listener. It was always a goal, ever since I joined 7Cups, I think that I have so much to give back and help out as a listener. I know that 7Cups has helped me get through things and I want to do the same for others.

I'm a 17 year old who goes to high school, and has a partime job. I have an amazing boyfriend that I have been close friends with for around 4 years now, and we just recently decided to start dating. He, along with my other friends, makes sure I attend my therapy appointments. I go to therapy for nightmares, social phobia and depression. I am pansexual, polyamourous, and genderfluid. I have two dogs and a cat, they are my adorable floof babies. I adore anything that has to do with astronomy or the stars. Can you tell? Lmao. I'm passionate about psychology, forensics and other law enforcement related studies. I love to read, write, draw and paint. I practice combined yoga and meditation.
I have a pretty busy schedule, so I won't be on all the time. But I'll be back asap.
"If you focus on what you left behind, you'll never see what lies ahead." - Gusteau (Ratatuoille)
I will take chats covering a range of topics. Including anxiety*, bullying, depression*, forgiveness, LGBTQ+*, loneliness, managing emotions, obsessive compulsive disorder, panic attacks*, PTSD/Trauma*, relationship stress, self-esteem, self-harm*, social anxiety*, spirituality, and student life.
Everyone can do with a little less judgement.
Let's make that crazy diamond inside of you, shine once more!
Hug O' War
I will not play at tug o' war
I'd rather play at hug o' war,
Where everyone hugs
Instead of tugs
Where everyone giggles
And rolls on the rug,
Where everyone kisses
And everyone grins
And everyone cuddles
And everyone wins.

Hi, I am Liz. I have a Bachelors of Science in Psychology. I hope to get a Masters in Clinical Psychology, PysD and to become a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist.
I have four years of experience working in the mental health field. My main focus was on eating disorders: anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, over exercising, but am very knowledgeable in all area of mental health.

Hello, I'm Bob.I will be gone on vacation July,10th Wednesday until July, 20th Monday.
I will pick up messages in the evening, but I will not be available for chats.
I have been clinically diagnosed with deep depression, high anxiety, ADHD and as I look at the list I have checked off, I have personal experiences in all of these areas.
My point is that my personal struggles have been great in my life and I have overcome or made peace with them.
I call them my psychological scars.
They are apart of who I am, what I am capable of and accomplishment. I offer those experiences as proof of my commitment to those that I touch here at 7 cups.
I like to write.
I like helping people and enjoy having information to share, my schedule is pretty open, and most importantly, I have used 7 Cups myself, so I am a grateful client, too.
We control this moment and it alone.
It is what we experience clearly now that will dictate tomorrow.
I am on a break until further notice. I am not taking any new mentees, members or projects; thank you for understanding.
My name is Cadence, but you can call me Cadie if you'd like. I've been here for over two years, so I'd like to say I'm pretty well-versed on the ropes of 7Cups. If you have any questions at all, feel free to let me know.

I am a firm believer that every single person on this entire world deserves a voice, and deserves to be heard. While I can't solve every problem you're going through, I can be there for you. I won't make you feel unwanted. Please feel free to strike up a chat; I will reply as soon as I can. You've made a huge step by just coming here, and I'm proud of you for taking that initial leap. It's the hardest, and you've done it. It's an amazing feat.

@Iara has been my sister from pretty much day one; she's one of the most amazingly spirited people I have ever met, and I love her dearly; if you speak with her you'll be in good hands.
@Jack is nothing short of a full-fledged superhero. His optimism, encouragement, love and enthusiasm are enough to make anyone smile for ages.

If I'm online, then please feel free to shoot me a message and start a chat. If I'm offline, then send me a message and I will get back when I can and we can set up a time to connect.

Hi, I am caringSmiles. :-)
I believe compassion and love can do wonders in an individual's life and can change the world as well.

I enjoy beautiful nature and love to help others. It gives me immense joy to brighten up someone's day.
I am not an online therapist, but I can help you by listening to you compassionately and non-judgmentally. :-)

Hello! My name is Citta. I work for a charity, having finished my masters in health care law. I have previously had experiences as a storyteller for children with cancer and as an assistant teacher. I'm a determined dreamer, a firm believer in kindness, and I aim to develop my career in the field of health care law.
I've personally dealt with my anxiety, depression and chronic illnesses. For years I hid my voice until one day I found a safe space to talk and started to live peacefully. I benefited a lot from therapy -- I love learning about feelings, emotions, and the insights of the human mind. I understand how hard it can be to live with difficult feelings and I believe that it's nice to be kind and compassionate to one another. Through 7Cups, I feel appreciated and honoured to listen to your stories. By sharing, we both learn and grow positively together, hopefully.
If I'm online, then please feel free to start a chat, anytime you feel ready and I'll listen to you. If I'm offline, then send me a message and we can set up a time to connect over a cup of tea (it's true - I always drink tea). I am so grateful that you come across this helpful site.
Have a lovely day!
