About You

Highly Sensitive Person

A line illustration of a person floating in space.

Being a Highly Sensitive Person, or HSP, can feel like having an exquisite, finely tuned antenna in world that feels overwhelmingly loud and bright. As an HSP you are more attuned to subtleties, have deep emotional responses, and often process information more intensely than the average person. This heightened sensitivity brings a heightened capacity for empathy and a tendency to feel profoundly affected by both the beauty and the chaos of life. It can be a wonderful gift, allowing you to appreciate art, music, nature, and human connections on a profound level. However, it can also bring challenges.

Everyday stimuli that others might overlook can be intense and overwhelming for HSPs. Loud noises, crowded spaces, and even the emotional energy of others can create an avalanche of feelings, leading to fatigue and emotional exhaustion. In a world that often values toughness and resilience, you might find it challenging to fit in, feeling overly vulnerable and misunderstood. The world labels you as “too sensitive” and you struggle with overthinking, self-doubt, shame, anxiety, isolation and frustration.

Therapy can be a nurturing haven for HSPs. It’s cozy space where you can openly discuss these challenges, knowing your therapist doesn’t dismiss your emotions, but validates and respects them as you both seek to understand the intricacies of your experience. In therapy, you'll learn tools to manage sensory overload and emotional intensity. You’ll explore techniques for setting boundaries, processing emotions, and practicing self-compassion. Therapy can help you calm the inner critic, build an authentic sense of self worth and find balance amidst life’s storms.

Therapy for HSPs is not about changing who you are; it’s about embracing your sensitivity and learning how to thrive in a world that doesn’t always understand it. It’s like having a gentle guide who helps you navigate the world while honoring your unique way of experiencing it. It’s a journey of self-discovery, self-acceptance, and finding your place in a world that needs your unique depth and empathy.

About You

Being a creative artist is a beautiful and complex journey. It's about seeing the world through a different lens, finding inspiration in unexpected places, and channeling your emotions, ideas, and visions into your craft, whether that's in the realm of art, music, writing, or another creative pursuit.

This path can also be laden with unique challenges. As a creative soul, you might experience the creative block, where ideas seem to elude you, and the flow of inspiration is out of reach. This can be deeply frustrating and disheartening. You might also grapple with self-doubt, wondering if your work is truly meaningful or if it will ever be appreciated by others. It can be a rollercoaster of emotions, ranging from the exhilaration of creative flow to the depths of artistic vulnerability and rejection. This emotional landscape can sometimes lead to feelings of isolation. The sense that you are a little different from the rest of the world can be both a blessing and a burden. Creative individuals may also struggle with imposter syndrome, questioning your own talent and legitimacy in your chosen field.

This is where therapy can help. Think of it as a safe haven, a place where you can bring your creative challenges and insecurities without judgment. Your therapist is like a caring confidant who understands the unique ups and downs of the creative journey. Together you’ll practice techniques to overcome creative blocks, manage self-doubt, and navigate the emotional highs and lows that come with the territory. You'll explore the roots of your creative process and uncover the wellspring of inspiration within you. Your therapist can help you quiet the inner critic and find the courage to share your creations with the world.

Therapy for creative individuals is about nurturing your artistic spirit, helping you recognize your unique voice, and guiding you on a path of self-discovery and creative fulfillment so you can embrace the beautiful, complex, and wonderfully artful existence that is your life.

Life Transitions & Adjustments

Change in all its forms is an undeniable part of life. Whether you've recently experienced a significant upheaval, such as divorce or a death, or you find yourself navigating a new chapter of life – perhaps starting a new job, graduating from college, relocating to a different city, getting married, or embarking on parenthood – it's perfectly natural to experience overwhelm in the midst of substantial transformation. This overwhelm can manifest as feelings of heavy sadness, anxiety, anger and confusion. Amidst all the changes, you might find it difficult to focus on daily life, leading to a sense of stress, helplessness and frustration.

During these periods of transition, therapy can prove invaluable in helping you process and integrate your ever-evolving landscape. Sessions can help you unpack your complex emotions and make sense of the changes in your life. Together we might gently explore the roots of these feelings and create practical strategies for coping with emotional turmoil, with the goal of regaining a sense of balance, adapting to your changed circumstances, and developing healthy coping skills to manage future stressors more effectively. Whenever you’re ready, reach out to begin navigating these changes in a way that brings you closer to your true self and kindles a deeper sense of purpose as you travel the road ahead.

Early Adulthood

A line illustration of many kinds of faces.

A conscious path through early adulthood can be a challenging expedition. It involves confronting newfound responsibilities, asking yourself major life questions, and grappling with conflicting demands and societal influences that may or may not align with your evolving self. The pace of change is faster than ever, you’re constantly bombarded with information, and the pressure to succeed feels relentless. You might feel like you’re sprinting to keep up but can’t escape the feeling that you’re not doing enough or that you’re somehow falling short. Somehow you feel disconnected from the world around you, despite being more connected than ever through technology. Add to that the weight of global issues, climate change, economic and job instability, and the feeling that you’re drowning in a sea of expectations. Managing all this new awareness and obligation at once is not so easy – especially when you’re going it alone.

At these junctures of our lives, having access to objective, supportive, non-judgmental therapy can be profoundly beneficial. Therapy provides a safe space to talk about these challenges and the emotions they bring. In therapy, you'll gain practical tools and strategies to manage stress, anxiety, and the overwhelming demands of the modern world. You'll learn how to set healthy boundaries, how to navigate social pressures, and how to connect with your own authentic self amidst the noise of society's expectations.

Therapy isn't about magically erasing these problems, because let's face it, they're part of the world you're growing up in. Instead, it equips you with the skills to thrive in this environment, to embrace your unique strengths, and to find balance in the midst of chaos. If the weight of the world is piling up, it’s safe to reach out for support. Therapy can help chart a course through this transformative period, and help support your grounding and empowerment needed to thrive.
