Highly sensitive people are characterized by a depth of processing (they process more deeply than most people), overstimulation (bright lights or loud sounds may be particularly grating to their systems), emotional response and empathy (big feelings), and sensitivity to subtleties. Here’s a helpful self-test.
HSP’s brains work a little differently (some refer to this trait as a superpower!). Being highly sensitive is not a flaw or disorder– it’s just a way of being in the world. If you’re an HSP, you may benefit from working with a counselor like me, someone familiar with these unique challenges and abilities. I am committed to helping highly sensitive people understand and value their sensitivity. I am here to listen deeply, cheer you on, and help you reach your goals.
