Are you feeling overwhelmed by the world? Do you feel tempted to numb out? Have you received comments about your sensitivity and/or quiet demeanor? If so, you may identify as an introvert and/or highly sensitive person (HSP). This may be your first-time hearing about HSPs.

Growing up, you, who identify as sensitive, introverted, and/or part of the minority, often feel like you do not belong. You try to excel to perfect your mask to the outside world. You try to blend in like a chameleon to the point of forgetting yourself. You learned to survive in this world, becoming what others want you to be. Once you realize you are living someone else’s life, not yours, you feel lost. When you are struggling, it affects how you feel about yourself and makes it difficult to look forward to the future.

You already know who you are and what you stand for. You just need some help accessing it. We can work together to better understand yourself and how to move through the world without having to numb out and/or use unhealthy coping skills. We are all works in progress. In fact, you are worthy because you exist. 

Therapy like life can be difficult at times, and having a guide with you can help. As a fellow introvert, HSP, and recovering perfectionist, I understand how challenging it can be to navigate through today’s very demanding, extroverted, and loud society.

"There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love."​ ~ Washington Irving
