Therapy for Quiet Sensitive People

Tired of feeling  overwhelmed, anxious, and that you don’t belong?

Is this familiar to you?:

  • Why are you so quiet?
  • You’re to sensitive.
  • Is there something wrong?
  • You’re overreacting.

These are common things we hear as quiet sensitive people often starting from a pretty young age.

The result of these repeated negative messages is that we begin to believe that we are faulty, that there is something wrong with us.

It’s pretty common that at some point we try to talk more, we try to be more outgoing. The result is often exhaustion and feeling like a failure.

If we feel like a failure when we are around others, we then start to avoid people, isolate ourselves, become super busy with work, volunteering, our kids…

The result is deep loneliness, a strong sense of not belonging, feeling invisible.

This is a really painful place to live. I’ve been here too.

And I know that this can change. Things can get better.

I help the people I work with understand themselves at a deeper level and we work together to build the skills they need to live a life that is full and satisfying for them.
