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:
- October 23-28
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,
Hello! I chose the picture of an apple because it represents to me growth and potential. The apple can grow to become the best apple it can be. My strengths lie in relationship/friendship problems and infidelity issues.
I'm in my 20s and have always been told I'm a good listener and person to come to. People have come to me years after talking to them because they remembered I was someone to confide in. I like to think of myself as open minded, non judgmental, and compassionate.
Activities/Positions I am involved in include: Chatroom Mentor, Forum Mentor, Quality Ambassador, Peer Support, Chat Support help, Adult/Teen Listener, Teen Chatroom Mentor, Group Mod, Safety Patrol Team.
Welcome to 7 Cups! I'm the chief cook and bottle washer here. I love 7 cups and the community we have built. Really proud of all that we've accomplished and excited to see how we continue to evolve. I unfortunately do not have much time for listening, but please drop me a note if you have thoughts or feeback. Glad you are here!
Hello! I am so glad you are here. You have taken the first step in your own self-care and, for that, you are amazing.
I believe in the healing power of being listened to. I know that the fundamental thought of just being listen to may seem like it isn't very healing, but quite the contrary is true. When you are listened to, you feel: empowered, understood, connected, real, relieved. These are just some of the powerful feelings you might have. I am more than happy and excited to be able to help you on your journey of happiness (whatever it is that that means to you).
Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you feel more comfortable or if there is something that I do that does not feel helpful; I love to grow and learn and I cannot do that without
Welcome to your journey to happiness!
*I absolutely do not take relationship chats*I've been here for 6 years and it has been an impactful time in my life both for my own well-being and having the privilege to support others. 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.♥I only take scheduled chats for 1 hour a day based on my work schedule♥
