As a highly sensitive person who is also raising highly sensitive children I understand the trait on many levels. I love supporting parents to help their sensitive children thrive. This resource page will continually be updated.

Consultations for Parents of Sensitive Children

New research shows us that without the right support highly sensitive children are more likely to experience anxiety and depression in life. But with the right support they are less likely to experience these challenges. If you are a parent of a highly sensitive child, learn everything you can about the trait and how to support your sensitive child in the right ways. These consultations are for the parents to discuss tools and techniques to help their HSP child succeed and thrive in life and help prevent anxiety and depression.
