Hello! I'm glad you've found me on 7 Cups of Tea. I'm here to talk to you about anything that is on your mind! I enjoy sailing, singing, reading, Netflixing, and the outdoors. I've overcome a lot of struggles of my own and would like to help you by listening to yours. Glad you are here!
I am here to listen to you, however, I am mostly listening to long term members and working on other projects. I have three teenagers and I work full time as an elementary school counselor so I am not always available to listen. I currently do not take too many chats. I do not take chats of a sexual nature. Please leave me a message and I will get back to you when I am available. "It's often the tiny steps that define the big moments of our dreams." -Chris Burkmenth

I am here for you to listen, to help, to explore. We can do this together.
-Willing to take chats but have to limit them to 20-30 minutes so I can help others and because I have other responsibilities inside and outside of this community.

My roles in the 7 cups community: Welcome team, Appreciation Team, Forum Mentor, Verified Listener Team, peer support, group moderator
I am a 37 year old single female. I have struggled with depression and anxiety most of my life. I have also struggled with addiction, self harm, bulimia, have lost my sweet daughter Who passed away at 16 months. I have multiple chronic illnesses and all of these things have taught me that we only have so much time on earth and I want to make the best of it. I've definitely been through my fair share of heart ache and pain and I can empathize with where you are coming from.
I enjoy writing, painting and horseback riding in my spare time. I'm an avid animal lover. I have 1 dog, 2 birds, 5 fish tanks and 2 horses. My horses names are Stardust and Starlight. They are both rescues. My dog is a certified service dog and a certified search and rescue dog. He is my companion and best friend. My family has just purchased a ranch where we will be retraining abused and neglected horses.
I also enjoy learning new languages and speak 7 languages fluently.

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.

Hello! My name is Danielle. I'm an undergraduate student at UCLA studying psychology with dreams of becoming a therapist or psychologist. I work on campus as a personal peer counselor and absolutely love having the opportunity to talk to individuals about anything and everything, especially if it's something that concerns them. I believe that all human beings benefit from having somebody to simply hear and understand them, and this is why I seek to make a future in the counseling field. I currently specialize in concerns regarding relationships, stress, anxiety, depression, self-advocacy, and gender and sexuality. I also have personal experience with addiction, emotional abuse, ADHD, mental illness, and child protection services. I love coffee and tea, cats, chocolate, reading, and spending time with my little brother. My philosophy is kindness and my dream begins with you. Let's talk.
