Supportive Listening (By Phone)


10 per session - Virtual OK - Posted Nov 05, 2017

30-minute supportive listening session by phone. Uninterrupted time to talk about anything you wish. I will listen attentively and provide supportive feedback as desired. All information will be kept strictly confidential.

Sessions are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you have limited availability, please plan to schedule your session at least one week in advance to ensure that we can reserve a time that is convenient for you.

To schedule a session, please send me a message with your name, desired appointment date and time, the general reason why you wish to speak with me, and any questions, concerns, or expectations which you would like me to be aware of. I will reply within 24 hours to confirm your appointment. If for any reason you are not able to keep your appointment, please notify me at least one hour in advance.

Note: This service is not a substitute for mental health therapy. If you are seeking support for mental illness, please consult a licensed psychologist or other licensed mental health professional.

Training & Qualifications

I have completed an associate's degree in psychology. I have studied psychology of personality, social psychology, developmental psychology, cognitive psychology, biological psychology, child and adolescent psychology, and abnormal psychology. I have also taken introductory courses in sociology and social work. I graduated with high honors.

Friends describe me as a wonderful listener. I am patient, polite, respectful, and compassionate. My job is to create an environment where the individual feels safe to speak freely, knowing that I am genuinely interested in their opinions and perspectives, and that I sincerely care about what they have to share with me.

I know firsthand how difficult it can be to find someone willing to give you their undivided attention, especially in the 21st century; and yet I believe it is so essential to our wellbeing and success as individuals and as a society to ensure that we all have people in our lives whom we can turn to for support in times of need. My goal is to provide that support for those who may not otherwise receive it.

Availability & Preferences
