Hi there! My name is Daniel. I am 21Â years old and in my third year at the University of Georgia.Â I am pursuing degrees in Social Work and Psychology and simply want to help people. Reaching out for support can be really daunting so Iâd like to thank you for simply taking the time to look for the support you may be needing!
I struggleÂ with major depression myself and so to a degree, I understand what it's like to feel hopeless, lonely, and empty a lot of the time. I very much understand what itâs like to feel stuck but lack the motivation/desire to change. People, including friends and family, may not really understand what youâre going through and may judge you for struggling with those emotions. Â Â
In my experience, it helps to just have someone you can trust and confide in, even if it may not necessarily solve a particular issue. Iâm here to simply listen to you and give you the space you need to express absolutely ANYTHING thatâs on your mind, whether itâs a personal issue in your life such as academic stress or mental health struggles to issues of politics, religion or lack thereof (Iâm atheist), or honestly anything about life. Â
I want to let you know that you are not alone in how you feel and that those feelings are entirely valid. From one human being to another, I will do my best to offer you whatever support I possibly can! ð
I'm here for you when you're giving up, when you're exhausted.
I'm here for you when you've got no more left.
When you're overwhelmed by the bleak truth and vast helplessness of it all, the ache, the emptiness..
I'll listen to your words or your silence, whichever you give me.
I'm here for you when there's nothing left to say..
My name is Cat and I am a trained active listener here on 7 Cups of Tea!
My areas of expertise include but are not limited to:

You are welcome to send me a message anytime and I will get back to you as soon as possible. I do not have set hours but if you want to request to book a time with me I can make that happen - shoot me a message.
As for a little bit about myself, I consider myself an athlete - I do many sports such as rock climbing, volleyball, and swimming. I also love the gym and nutrition, so if you wanted to ever talk about that just let me know! I am also a psychology major specializing in addictions.Â
âNot everyone will understand your journey. Thatâs fine. Itâs not their journey to make sense of. Itâs yours.â
Take care of yourself! I look forward to chatting with you!
