I identify myself as:
Highly Sensitive Person | Introvert | INFJ (Myers-Briggs)
Recovering Perfectionist | Devotee of Ice Cream
Growing up I was always told I was too sensitive. I remember being told that I
needed to toughen up and to stop letting things bother me.
For the longest time I thought there was something wrong with me because I felt things so strongly.
It wasn't until I found out that I was HIGHLY SENSITIVE that it all made sense.
I would always tear up at sad country songs and could never watch those sad animals in
the Humane Society commercials. Seeing images of people or animals suffering
always stuck with me and I couldn't shake them.
I now see these highly sensitive traits as a positive!
Along the way I discovered ways to navigate our non-highly sensitive, extroverted world. It is
my purpose to help you to do the same in therapy. I want you to be able to be
comfortable in your own skin and to no longer feel like there is something wrong with you.
I no longer want you to feel like you have to "get over" your sensitivities
in order to fit in.
Because of my background and because I have these HSP traits, I feel I have a good understanding
of the unique needs of someone with Innate Sensitivity.
Is that you?
