Did you know that high sensitivity is a genetically-based trait (like hair color)?
You were born this way; one of the 30% of the population wired to think more, feel more, become overwhelmed easily, and to be more impacted by your environment.
While high sensitivity comes with many gifts, it can feel like a curse in your relationships, life, and work. You may feel like something's wrong with you and try to hide your true self, numb your feelings, or be perfect.
While this can give us temporary relief, these patterns often turn into anxiety, depression, overwhelm, exhaustion, and relationship struggles down the line.
We all have blind spots and old wounds, but that doesn't mean we're broken, defective, or "too much". It's just means we need a kind guide to walk with us through the murkiness to the other side, where a more fulfilling life is waiting.
As an experienced therapist and HSP myself, I'm equipped help you heal most of the struggles that come with being highly sensitive:
→ Feeling distressed about the state of the world
→ Anxiety and Depression
→ Over-thinking and worrying
→ Overwhelm and overstimulation
→ Exhaustion from feeling others' pain
→ Upsetting experiences and trauma
→ Confidence issues
→ Relationship struggles
More than anything, I'll help create a comfortable, safe space for you to talk about anything and everything without judgement. My support is gentle, kind, and (in my clients' words) life-changing.
