“I am a therapist and sometimes find myself working with people who are really just lonely and either aren’t good at creating relationships or are too scared or insecure to do so…I have one patient who told me that she benefits from having you just come out and listen to her. I have another that I just discharged and could sorely use someone to listen to her… which is all she used me for… I think it was helpful for her to be listened to but it’s not therapy and not what insurance pays for.”

“My mother, father, and husband had all been diagnosed with cancer within a month of each other. I was racing among three hospitals, three chemo plans, three nightmares. I felt like God had forgotten me for sure… Miracle was, you were there, and it was truly a miracle! I imagine you are connecting to hearts and souls all over the globe, healing suffering with your compassion.”
“It wasn’t about solving a problem or feeling better; our conversations, emails, and gatherings were about sharing our lives together, not just my own. It wasn’t someone analyzing me. It was someone willing to get into the trenches with me, ask me tough questions, and listen without judgement. They continue to be there for me now. It’s the commitment they make to always be there that helps encourage me to press on.”
“Thanks for your time yesterday. I appreciated the conversation—especially to find that there is someone out there in my position. I didn’t feel so alone. I’m trying to let my situation rest gently on my shoulders for the time being. Your ability to do the same helped my disposition.”
