Being a Highly Sensitive Person can be Amazing!
You’re a high achiever, and you care deeply about what you do, but it never feels like you’ve done enough, and you feel like you’re not good enough. You’ve been told you’re too sensitive; you think too much; you worry too much. You tend to be perfectionistic. You might get overwhelmed easily, and sometimes the world feels like it’s “too peoply” out there!
If this sounds like you, you might be a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP). This means you feel things deeply, but it also means you are loyal, passionate, conscientious, empathic and people come to you because you are very understanding and are an excellent listener! I work with HSPs to help them learn ways to manage in the world that make it easier! What you’ve been told is wrong with you, is really a key to your greatest strengths (even if you totally don’t believe that!). We work on this together, and you learn lots of tools so that you begin to thrive as an HSP.
Feel free to check out my website. I have a podcast called Unapologetically Sensitive. I’ve got videos about being an HSP, and videos about the challenges, and the strengths we have as HSPs!
I would love to help you learn to embrace and celebrate being an HSP (it might mean having to do some digging), but HSPs make up 50% of those in therapy–I have a video that explains why. HSPs tend to have the best outcomes in therapy because they are introspective and want to grow and change.
If you live in Calfornia, I offer telehealth (we meet online–like Skype, but it’s a secure/private connection that is totally private). You don’t have to get a babysitter; you can be in the comfort of your own home, or you can meet during your lunch break. No traffic, no commute–easy!
I offer a free 20 minute consult. We can meet online so you can try it out and see if you like it, and we can see if we’re a good fit. No pressure and no obligation!
