Someone to talk to
I will listen. A lot of people, nowadays, hear but do not listen. I will sit with you and be an unbiased ear to your troubles. Think of it like therapy without the couch and notepad. I know that sometimes we need to talk about our problems and issues but can't bring ourselves to tell our friends or loved ones. Whether it's because they have their own problems and you don't want to add to them, or because you know that they rely on you to be the strong person all the time. I am offering you a chance to talk out your worries with someone who is completely unbiased when it comes to your life and your decisions. I will offer advice if asked, but this is about you getting things off your chest. Doctor/Patient confidentiality is a definite standard for me, so you'll get that even thought I'm not a doctor. Coffee, tea, or water will be provided.
Training & Qualifications
I am not a licensed therapist. I don't have a PHD. What I do have is two ears and a whole lot of compassion. I have an understanding of people that not many do. I've been an unlicensed therapist for most of my life for friends, family, and even strangers. My experience is just life experience. Having been through some crap and knowing that it's always nice to have an unbiased ear to talk to. I do have two cats, so if you have an allergy we can meet at a park or something and I will bring the refreshments.
Availability & Preferences
Evenings are better for me. I work during the day. Tuesdays and Wednesdays are good most any time since those are my days off.
