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:
- Jan 21-Jan 24
- Feb 11-Feb 19
- Feb 21-Feb 22
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,
"Be the change you wish to see in the world"Time is the most valuable commodity★ I am a 7 Cups Safety CoordinatorI contribute to these Quality Projects★ Peer Support Project / Training★ Welcoming Team: I have personally provided resources and welcomed 6,680 New Listeners to the 7 Cups Community★ Safety Coordinator★ 7 Cups Ambassador ★ 7 Cups Internship Program★ Community Mentor Leader ★ Chatroom Mentor ★ Quality Mentor ★ Forum Mentor ★ Doorkeeper.

Activity Scheduling Activities can be connected to the way you feel. If you track feelings of depression, you may discover that when you are depressed you are more passive and less active. Following the observation that depressed people tend to stop doing pleasurable activities, depression treatments often emphasize increasing the weekly number of pleasurable activities. Additional ways to improve mood:
Surround yourself with people who have a positive impact on you
Invest in friendships and have a “go to” person that you can trustBecome more forgiving - forgive yourself and forgive others
Build on areas of strength and note evidence for new beliefs that replace old negative beliefs (praise yourself for things you accomplish)Keep a gratitude journal

Understanding what depression is begins the journey toward recovering from depression. You may not realize that depression symptoms are not just emotional. Depression is much more than a low mood, feeling sad, and being irritable. There are cognitive (e.g., self-criticism and hopeless thoughts), behavioral (e.g., isolating from others and having difficulty ’getting started’ with activities), and physical (e.g., sleep problems and change in appetite) symptoms as well. The mind and body are very much connected, and the way that depression affects someone demonstrates that strong connection. Learn more about what depression is by reading the Depression Guide on 7 Cups of Tea’s website.

I care about each and every one of you!! Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. I do ask for respect in each chat as I am human and I know that everyone needs support but I also need to make sure that I am able to effectively help everyone My best topics are ADD/ADHD, Self Harm Recovery, Depression, and Anxiety but I can always listen and support the best I can with other topics!! If you are in crisis though, please reach out to a hotline. 7 Cups is not a crisis resource and I want to make sure you are getting the help you deserve! I will not take a chat or continue a chat after giving resources if you contact me while in a crisis. I am not trained as a crisis prevention helper and hotlines are. Some of them are really great resources!!Always remember that everyone deserves a shot at success. No matter what anyone else says, you have a real shot at achieving your dreams. If you don’t have a dream yet, don’t know what your purpose is quite yet, that’s fine. You can get there. You are not always born knowing what your purpose in life is.I do take long term members but I do have rules regarding boundaries. If you would like to connect with me after our first chat for long term support, feel free to tell me and we can work on setting it up!! A little about me...My name is Isabelle and I love psychology!! I am 17 years old and I plan on majoring in psychology, specifically going into the criminal justice direction to become a criminal profiler!! I love writing, specifically short stories, novels, and poetry. I love reading also and that is how I spend a lot of my free time when I am not here on 7 Cups. I have struggled with mental illness throughout my life and that has made me stronger and more passionate about the topics that I support here on 7 Cups. The struggles that I have gone through are what has brought be to be a listener here today!! If I am offline, you can always leave me a message or schedule a time to have a chat (HERE)My Roles Teen Listener Global Group Moderator Discussion Leader for Depression, Self Harm Recovery, Compassion Corner, and Safety and Knowledge communities Forum Supporter for Borderline Personality subcommunity and ADD/ADHD category Forum Teen Star for ADD/ADHD and Needs Reply Peer Supporter Chat Supporter
