High sensitivity is a personality trait held by 20% of the population that involves a heightening of emotions, empathy, and the five senses.

Is this you?

It's exhausting navigating life feeling like you are too sensitive, anxious and misunderstood. You may require a lot of recharge time due to easy overwhelm. You wish you could set healthy boundaries, keep up with your peers, and find a healthy balance to the anxiety and irritability you so often feel. You may think your confidence or self-esteem are lacking and that is why you bend so easily for others. You may also feel like it’s no longer worth trying to date or meet new people because they rarely understand you. It feels lonely and isolating yearning for connection on a deeper level and not receiving it.


Imagine what it would be like to feel proud of your sensitivities and put aside the shame that has followed you for so long. Imagine losing any sense of doubt around being who you truly are. Imagine having confidence and ease in setting boundaries with those around you to tend to your own needs first so you can show up as your best self for your loved ones. You CAN feel seen, heard and understood as you are. 

If you are ready to do the work and create the change, let's talk.
