"A lot of people are searching for happiness. They're looking for it. They're trying to find it in someone or something outside of themselves. That's a fundamental mistake. Happiness is something that you are, and it encompasses the way you speak." -Lund

Disclaimer: I am not a certified therapist, I am a student that is stressed and wants to help people that has had therapy before herself and is diagnosed with depression. No, I cannot prescribe anything and am not giving *professional* advice, but I have been through my share of bad things, depression, self harm, and family issues. So, if you would like someone to talk to, or if you would like to vent I am here!
Once I see you're application for a Therapy Session, I will give you a link where we can talk. It is a seperate profile and account on scratch and I will delete our conversation after (for personal reasons, and to protect information if you wouldn't like the whole of scratch to know your issues).
*IF you can't fit with my schedule, then we can work something out and get you in another time! I want to help as many people as I can!*
Please visit this website if you really need help!!! I have gone through the thoughts and the burden of having them. Please please please PLEASE, if you ever think about it, PLEASE visit this website and give them a text/call! You are all wonderful and have so much potential, please don't let it go to waste!! <333

Some backstory on The Harbor:
Hi! So it's me, qoon.
If you're reading this, you're probably wondering why and where I got the idea to this out of the blue.
Well, I have been really down lately, and I have had some people who have picked me up and made me feel better about myself. I went through some rough patches in the past few weeks and it's been constant highs and lows.
So the ultimate goal here is to make others feel better about themselves, and to love themselves! I have plenty of love to share with all of you, and I understand that maybe you can't realize your full potential, so I'm here to help!
In this studio, there will be daily challenges, such as; making someone smile, doing something that makes you happy, getting something done (like a chore), doing something healthy (like an exercise! I understand this isn't for everyone, but it really really raises the sense of self worth to know that you're doing your body a favor :)
