A little about me: I love dogs and the outdoors.Â Have a wonderful day and thanks for dropping by!
I am currently unable to take on Member chats.
I believe in being honest with ourselves. Sometimes we need help to restructure our thoughts, and sometimes everything is overwhelming. I'm here to listen.
I am Misty.Â I am a trained and verified active adult and teen listener, and quality mentor, chatroom and forum mentor and community mentor leaderÂ and am glad you found me on 7 cups of Tea. ****Â ~Â *****Â *Â ***** ~Â *****I am happy to listen to you on many topics. I have experience of lots of different areas -Â anxiety, depression, bi-polar and mental illness, families and relationships,Â love, school, college or work related problems, financial stress, healthy living, food, diets, eating disorders,Â I can also offer support for chronic pain, illnessÂ and disabilities.Â I am part of both the adult and the teen listening team, (and yes I can still remember being a teen lol) and I also offer long term support to those that I can and who are in need.(I am often asked about my age and how I can have experience of all these topics. Well, if you can keep a secret .... I am a 'mature' lady with two grown up children!)If I am not online then you are welcome toÂ leave me a message -Â Â but pleaseÂ tell me what you want to talk about so we can get off to a flying start. I will get back to you when I am next able, but please bear in mind thatÂ I get a lot of messages and I will reply to the most urgent first so if you just say hi, do you really just want a hi back?At weekends my response will be slower as that is usually my time off from 7Cups,
and I may not respond to new requests till Monday.
I hope you understand that. WeÂ all need time for ourselves to recharge our batteries and relax.Â ONE STEP AT A TIME"We all have different size footsteps that we leave behind on our journey through life.
Sometimes we can change the size of our footsteps, the imprint, the impact, the direction.
Sometimes our footsteps land on rock and they do not show, or they land on sand and stay for a while,
Other times they get washed away by massive oceans or powerful waves.
But each and every footstep is important in so many ways.
Ways that we may not even know about.Watch your step, think about your steps, plan your next step, and the rest will follow."Â Listening ... one step at a time
Footsteps in the sand,
Or footsteps in the snow.
We all have the ability
To choose the way we go.
Will we turn left
Or will we turn right . .

If for some reason it is green but I am not responding, please note that I am generally only available during the hours of 10am-11pm CST. If you are contacting me outside these hours because the status is green, it is a site glitch.Â It has been determined that there is a current problem with my status in the search results; it shows me as always available.

Hi! My name is Lynn, and I'm glad you've found me! I'm a trained listener with a degree in English and psychology as well as professional training in peer counseling. I am NOT a professional psychologist, and I cannot provide therapy services. My scholarly focuses were in ethnic, cultural and gender studies, and psychological studies in abnormal psychology and human sexuality. You'll find me to be exceptionally open-minded and able to talk about practically anything that is on your mind. I am GLBTQ+ friendly. I have personal experience with a number of things, and my professional training has focused mostly on sexuality, depression/anxiety management, and autism spectrum disorder. In my free time, I enjoy writing, movies, and MUSIC!!! Feel free to reach out to me anytime I'm online, and if I'm not, I'll respond to messages as soon as I can after getting notice.
Please read previous member reviews before connecting with me. If you're a fellow listener, I appreciate your interest, but I will hold you accountable to the listener agreement and will not provide emotional wellness support outside the parameters of that agreement, no exceptions!
I am, in general, an acute situation listener. I focus on immediate needs. This means I'm not likely to "just chat" though I am open to doing so. Just note that I focus on emotional crisis first.Â I do not have long-term relationship availability at this time.Â
I am also a person living with ASD. My vocabulary and style of speech has been accused of being mean, harsh, aggressive, you name it, I've heard it. I cannot help it, and I cannot change it. Believe me, I've tried. If you're sensitive to that sort of thing, it's best to move on! This being said, IÂ amÂ a person and I have feelings. All I can do is try my best, but I limit my support list for a reason and ask certain questions at the start so we can be on the same page.
My style is to talk about progressive approaches and necessary steps, whether or not they "feel good"... I'm not one to try and package up harsh realities in fuzzy packages. I firmly believe that every adult has the ultimate responsibility for their feelings and their response to those feelings, so a discussion with me will be about accountability, self-honesty and can sometimes be a "rude" reality check. My expectation for members that talk to me is that they have read this description and accept that this is what they will get from me; that I expect them to be a grown adult, able to speak about issues with maturity and a desire for affirmation and change, and will understand that it is up to them and them alone where the power lies. I am simply a facilitator in your own conversation with yourself; if something I say is sharp, hits home, there is a reason.
Generally speaking, I do not provide support for relationship issues, domestic violence, sexual trauma, discussions of incest and/or other non-consensual sexual experiences. I do not provide detailed discussions of sexual desires, fetishes or dysfunctions; if you need help in this area, I recommend working with a professional.I cannot discuss self-harm, suicidal ideation/events, or abuse events. Please seek support from another listener if you need this kind of help, or reach out to suicide.org
As any listener on here has the right to do, I reserve the right and ability to set conversational boundaries and protect myself as an emotional being. If at any time I feel that either involved party is at risk during our conversations, I will advise as much and do my best to direct the member to the best path.
While I have professional training and education, I cannot provide therapy services or fill in as a replacement for your mental health professional.Â
I'm Jenna. I've been here for 5 years and it has been an impactful time in my life both for my own well-being and having the privilege to support others. My main focus on chat topics is anxiety, bipolar depression, DID, and trauma chats. You can find a full list of topics I support down below under categories. I work almost non-stop at my real life job which unfortunately has a huge impact on my availability. For this reason, I am not able to take on long-term members at this time until I am able to find a balance.â¥I only take scheduled chats for 1 hour a day based on my work scheduleâ¥My InvolvementActive Listening 1Depression Support Team LeaderFeed Team LeaderForum MentorPeer Support LeaderSafety PatrolVerifying ListenersMy Twinderfuls:@asthebeesays@coolvibes@fluffyUnicorns84@Teagan@vivelespatates@wonderfulPumpkin71
