UNFORTUNATELY I AM CURRENTLY NO LONGER ABLE TO ACCEPT NEW MEMBERS.
Hi, you! :)
Yes, you! Welcome to 7cups of tea and my profile! I am very glad that you are here! :) That's awesome!
In case you're wondering whether the two of us would be a good match, I want to share a few things about me.
I love helping others, I am a dog person, I love reading and art and long walks, and big cities, and getting immersed in a good movie or tv show. I have been through my fair share of things, and supported people around me with the issues they were facing.
I believe that every issue you are dealing with, no matter how big or small you may perceive it, is worth talking about and that's why it's so awesome that you're here right now. I also believe in the power of humor, at the same time I know it's not everyone's cup of tea ;) and that some topics are not funny whatsoever. I am not a professional psychologist, but over time on here I have learned my bits and pieces about active listening and offering emotional support, which I believe if done well, can go a long way. And offering emotional support through active listening is what I will try my best to do during our chats. It may not solve any issues you are facing, but maybe it will take the weight off your shoulders and make you feel less alone with it.
I am happy to listen about pretty much anything and everything! :) Naturally though, I am stronger/more experienced with some topics than others. My listening strengths lie in LGBTQ+, relationships (including yourself, your partner, friendships and families!), grief, work, struggling with beliefs and belonging, being a TCK, TCI, CCK, support in situations of being discriminated, and PMS/PMDD.
Currently my schedule is busy, so I currently take chats one person at a time, an hour each, and regulars weekly.
I am looking forward to meeting you and listening to you! :)Make sure to meet my awesome listener twins

| Teen Quality Mentor | Teen Transition Mentor |Active Listening 1 (Grading & Feedback)You can call me Amp!Greetings, I'm so glad that you've reached out for help. I know that life can seem like a complicated journey sometimes. During this time, it is not unusual to feel overwhelmed, confused or frustrated. My goal is to provide comfort and care for you as well as a safe and non-judgemental space to talk about everything and anything. Sometimes we just want someone to listen, and even that alone can be therapeutic. I am willing to listen to you and help you understand your thoughts and feelings better. You don't have to feel you are alone on the journey.
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.
