the Highly Sensitive Person


About 20% of the population has an innate trait of high sensitivity also known as Sensory Processing Sensitivity. Highly sensitive people (HSPs) have unique brain differences that have both benefits and challenges. Because we take in so much we may feel challenged by overwhelm and exhaustion. As a psychotherapist, author and global HSP consultant, I have dedicated my life and career to supporting and empowering HSPs to live their fullest and best life. This website is dedicated to HSPs globally and I invite you to explore all the resources and support throughout.
