For nine weeks now, sixth-grader Ciro Ortiz has been setting up shop at the L train’s Bedford Avenue stop in Williamsburg. He’s there every Sunday from noon to 2pm, and for $2, he offers emotional advice to subway riders who need to vent about train delays, the Polar Vortex or anything, really.

The 11-year-old created the stand after being bullied at school, the New York Post reports, and it’s a cross between Lucy’s Psychiatric Help booth in Peanuts and Saturday Night Live’s Well for Boys.

The booth is yet another form of catharsis for New Yorkers, who have already spilled their feelings on the Post-it subway walls and confetti for New Year’s Eve after this hellish year
